Oops, HuffPost SF mistakes a columnist’s spoof for news

Friday, July 15, 2011

After picking up Examiner freelancer Melissa Griffin’s spoof column about Mayor Ed Lee and reporting on it as if it were real, HuffPost SF appended this correction this afternoon:

She was indicating what she hoped the Mayor would have said were he being completely honest and more than a little bit snarky. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.”
Here’s the entire post (which appears to have since been taken down). And here’s Griffin’s column.
