It's not often that one finds a stand-up person to wholeheartedly admit mistakes with no intent to deflect the brunt of the wrongdoing, but this evening I received this note of apology from the author of the article which appeared in the Deseret News today, which article had cast doubt on the legitimacy of the "halting of canning" article that was so widespread amidst
the media and the gossip trees of the LDS Church.
I want to give a shout out of thanks to the few of our readers who didn't waiver and who employed their reading comprehension skills to determine that our original article wasn't off base.
1. We have re-written portions of the online story to clarify what your blog said and the church's official reaction to it. At the end of the online story we have added this tag line: "(This story has been changed to more accurately reflect the blog post and the LDS Church’s response to it.) You can view the new story at: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865579566/LDS-home-storage-centers-tweaking-cannery-policy.html
2. In tomorrow's published newspaper we will run the following correction: "The Preparedness Pro blog site reported that self-service canning would cease at LDS canneries east of the Mississippi at the end of June. A story in Tuesday's Deseret News misrepresented the report. The Deseret News regrets the error."
These responses are consistent with Deseret News policy in this regard.
I apologize for the misrepresentation. The fault was mine, and mine alone. I am sorry for any frustration, inconvenience or discomfort this may have caused you.
