A reporter apologizes

“Apologies. I had some bad information and I regrettably went with it. Matt Lauer is NOT moderating the first presidential debate (Sept. 26); instead, he is moderating a so-called “Commander-in-Chief Forum” on Sept. 7, with Clinton and Trump on stage back-to-back — not together — taking questions about veterans issues. I am sorry and embarrassed for posting wrong information.” –– Ken Rudin, Ken Rudin’s Political Junkie, formerly of NPR and ABC News.
