What do you know, The Washington Post doubled down today on its refusal to identify blacks in headlines and leads, having done so once after identifying whites three times in another story yesterday.

Here is a front-page tease:

Four arrested after $19,000 in iPhones were purchased using stolen credit cards

The men were found with more than 240 credit cards at a Tysons Corner mall, police said.

Here is the headline:
Police arrest four after $19,000 in iPhones were purchased using stolen credit card info at Tysons Corner mall
Here is the lead paragraph:
Fairfax County police arrested four men after two of them bought more than $19,000 worth of iPhones using stolen credit card information from a Tysons Corner mall store, authorities say. The men — once caught — were found with more than 240 credit cards among them.
We did, to give credit where due, get the mugshots.
