Apology of the Day – Reporter Admits Error in Palin Article
It’s hardly an error when it’s shown to be a blatant act by an ignoramus with full intent to demean Sarah Palin. Is it mistaken identity when the mother of the infant informs the reporter of the exact ID of the child? I don’t think so. This back-door apology is another example of the left taking a bite without thought and consideration. Even a shark will spit out a mouthful when it proves not to be a morsel.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A writer for Vanity Fair has acknowledged a case of mistaken identity in an unflattering article about Sarah Palin in the magazine’s October issue.
Reporter Michael Joseph Gross describes Palin’s youngest son, Trig, being pushed in a stroller by his older sister, Piper, before a rally in May in the Kansas City suburb of Independence.

The problem, which was first reported by the website Politico, was that the boy the reporter described was another child with Down syndrome.
The mother of that child, conservative activist Gina Loudon, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that she told Gross during the rally that the child in the stroller was her son, not Palin’s. She said she tried to make it clear because the two children look a lot alike.
“I told him that. And he ignored it,” Loudon said. “It’s not even like he didn’t fact check – he just ignored facts.”
