The LA Times issued a correction on an article about Breitbart Senior Editor MILO after falsely branding him a “white nationalist.”
On Saturday, LA Times reporter Rick Anderson falsely branded Breitbart editor MILO a “white nationalist” in an article covering last night’s shooting incident at the University of Washington. Today, the newspaper issued a correction, removing the reference which referred to MILO as a “white nationalist.”
“This article has been corrected to delete a reference to Yiannopoulos as a white nationalist, and to more completely describe the Twitter campaign that resulted in his removal from the social media site,” a correction section on the side of the article now states.
Anderson’s original article, prior to its amendment, stated: “A white nationalist, Yiannopoulos was banned by Twitter last January after he sent a series of racist tweets about “Ghostbusters” actress Leslie Jones. He uses a derogatory term for gays in the title of his speaking tour, and his speeches intentionally push the envelope.”
