WaPo Makes Important Correction: Spicer was “Among Bushes” Not “In The Bushes”

Showing uncompromising journalistic integrity the Washington Post admitted their phrasing might have been slightly off regarding the positioning of a certain press secretary in the evening hours of May 10th.

The piece in question thoroughly details the movements and actions of Sean Spicer and his team after news broke that James Comey had been fired.

Originally, the article stated that Spicer was huddled “in the bushes” with his team preparing to meet the press.  But it seems someone (Spicer) wasn’t satisfied with the wording, as most news outlets ran with the story of Spicer hiding in the bushes from the press. So someone (Spicer) contacted the Washington Post and asked for a correction – and the Post obliged.

Here’s their amendment:

EDITOR’S NOTE: This story has been updated to more precisely describe White House press secretary Sean Spicer’s location late Tuesday night in the minutes before he briefed reporters. Spicer huddled with his staff among bushes near television sets on the White House grounds, not “in the bushes,” as the story originally stated.

This is 2017.
