I guess you really can’t be a blog without some retraction posts, right. Well, it seems that there has been a mix-up with my Dana Priest story.
The ES editors were so pumped about this world-shattering event, that we shot it around to some DC reporters/bloggers that we thought would find this interesting.
Well, Amy Argetsinger, from the WaPo’s Reliable Source, found our story so amusing that she actually emailed Ms. Priest herself. Well, um, apparently Ms. Priest attended a friend’s dinner party, and not The Media Institute dinner last night.
So, as I’ve already written Ms. Argetsinger and Ms. Priest apology emails, I will do so again – sorry for the mix up. Although, I have no idea how that conversation progressed after I said, “Hello, Ms. Priest” and then mentioned the “secret prisons” and her “email at the Post.” But, I guess this also makes more sense now.
I do, however, stand by my statements about the lobster bisque.
