USA Today/Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Doesn’t Know the Players Either

I can’t take credit for this one…it was brought to my attention by a friend…but JSOnline got this wrong big time:

And according to Johnson, Trump told Johnson he barely knew Gordon Sondland, the U.S. ambassador who oversaw dealings with Ukraine

emphasis mine

For those of you following along, Gordon Sondland is the US Ambassador to the European Union. The acting ambassador to the Ukraine is William Taylor. So either the attribution of Mr. Sondland’s position is incorrect or William Taylor is the gentleman being referenced.

Fact checking and editing at our local paper is only going to get worse following the merger of Gannett and Gatehouse…trust me on this.
