Washington Post loses all credibility: Fake TV for thwarting thieves?

The Washington Post ran a nice little article about the benefits of burglar alarms, safes and other products to thwart the bad guys. They even quoted our friend Kirk MacDowell from GE Security.

And then they had to go and promote the silly "Fake TV" that my colleague Jason Knott mocked on
One inexpensive way to dupe burglars into thinking someone's home when they're not is the Fake TV. The device flashes intermittently, simulating the light output of a television. It retails for about $31.
I'm surprised the Post didn't recommend the bedside shotgun rack, too.
