Fact checking The Union’s Boardman’s column uncovers more errors

The Union’s weekly columnist George Boardman writes in his column this week: “That prompted Google’s president to cut short a family vacation in Africa and return to the Golden State to fire Damore. Political correctness apparently trumped a free and open exchange of ideas.”

Huh? Here’s what Google’s CEO, not president, actually wrote: “I have been on work related travel in Africa and Europe the past couple of weeks and had just started my family vacation here (in California) this week. I have decided to return tomorrow as clearly there’s a lot more to discuss as a group—including how we create a more inclusive environment for all.”

The Union. Podunk. George Boardman. Podunk.

    Rebane and Boardman have embraced the comments from “fish,” since signed comments on their blogs are becoming more scarce. This moron has a real chip on his shoulder about S.F. Of course, consider the source: http://www.ncc-1776.org/tle2011/tle603-20110116-02.html
    He couldn’t afford a shack in S.F. roflol.
