In an April 3 story about Mega Millions winner David Sneath, The Associated Press reported erroneously Sneath’s comment about what kind of a car he would buy. He didn’t say he would not buy a Ford product. His correct quote was: –I worked for Ford Motor Company. I won’t be buying a foreign product.”
Emphasis Murdoc’s. AP misquoted Sneath.
I’d call that a major “ooops.”
But don’t worry. All the rest of their reporting is spot-on.
My own post registered on the Google Finance page for Ford for most of the weekend, though it’s gone now. Nice.
