On November 10th, 2009, Mark Steel posted the following in the article titled “Video Game Stimulates Consumer Spending“:
An obviously perplexed Obama replied, “Umm…”
This quote, attributed to President Barack Obama, was incorrect. The actual quote was:
“Uhhh, well, yes, I mean, well, umm…”
We know that many people rely on us to give unbiased and impartial treatment to breaking news and sincerely regret this lapse in our journalistic integrity, as it diminishes our credibility.
Still, I can see why our writer made this misquote given the circumstances.
As acting Senior Editor of blogitude.com, I apologize, and thank you for bringing this matter to my attention.
