Another error by The Union columnist Boardman that warranted a published correction

This is getting tiresome for me, so it must be getting tiresome for The Union’s management. Or it should. Here’s another correction that George Boardman ran at the bottom of his weekly column this week:

“CORRECTION: In last week’s column about Rep. Doug LaMalfa’s town hall meeting, I wrote that chairs were tied together so people couldn’t throw them. In fact, the fire marshal ordered the setup to avoid blocking emergency exits. I apologize for the error. I stand by everything else in the column.”

What a dunce!

  1. I wonder why Boardman would say such a thing? Oh yeah, Todd strongly implied it was true. From Todd’s March 19 blog about how he set up the room for LaMalfa: “No one threw a chair (we ziptied them together)” Will TJ admit he lied?
