Washington Post Changes Romney Hit Piece Without Acknowledging Update



Text  



The Washington Post’s Romney hit piece seems to be falling apart, but the paper will be damned if it’ll acknowledge it. As Katrina noted earlier this morning, the sister of the alleged victim has disputed the story, claiming that it is “factually incorrect” and that her brother would be “furious” about it. Now, the Post has altered its article without notifying readers of the update. The original piece carried the following line:

“I always enjoyed his pranks,” said Stu White, a popular friend of Romney’s who went on to a career as a public school teacher and has long been bothered by the Lauber incident. “But I was not the brunt of any of his pranks.”

Now, it reads:

“I always enjoyed his pranks,” said Stu White, a popular friend of Romney’s who went on to a career as a public school teacher and said he has been “disturbed” by the Lauber incident since hearing about it several weeks ago, before being contacted by The Washington Post. “But I was not the brunt of any of his pranks.”
