Well, I sure made a mistake! And, as it turns out it’s a rather big one.
I take little consolation in the fact that I wasn’t the only one to make the mistake, as I am the one who published a post on this blog about it when I should’ve at the very least waited until reviewing the audio for the debates to double-check that what I had heard (and what others had heard) was indeed accurate.
FOR THE RECORD:
The name that Senator Joe Biden mentioned in his anecdotal story about the man at the gas pump, was “Joey Danco“, and NOT Joey Stanko .
Now, I was originally going to do as many media sources do when they have made a mistake and merely delete the story, however, that would be more akin to covering up my mistake than setting the record straight. So, along with this separate post, I will copy and paste a link to this notice at the very beginning of the original post.
I would like to take this opportunity to first apologize to my readers. I would never intentionally seek to mislead anyone about issues so important to this election. I have no need to make up information regarding Senator Biden, nor Barack Obama. Simply addressing the issues I believe makes a much more salient point about any objections I may have to their campaign.
I would also like to take this opportunity to apologize to Senator Biden, to Joseph Stanko, Jr., as well as extending my apologies to Joey Danco. As a result of this embarassing learning experience, I resolve to double- and triple-check with as many sources as I possibly can before running with a story like this again if the opportunity ever presents itself to me again.
Again, I am truly sorry for this collosal misunderstanding.
