$15 Billion in Orders for US Company Signed During Trump’s Visit to Vietnam
CORRECTION: This article was published under the headline "Trump's Visit to Vietnam Results in $15 Billion in Orders for US Company." In reality, while both deals were signed during Trump's recent visit to Southeast Asia, they had both been announced in 2018. Therefore, the causation implied in the headline was incorrect. We have added clarifying information to the article about the dates on which the deals were announced, and we have changed the headline of the article. We apologize for the error and any confusion we may have caused.

Omar Took 2017 Trip Sponsored by Group Now Supporting Immigrant Caravans
CORRECTION, Feb. 27, 2019: The original headline of the article, "Omar Took Trip Sponsored by Pro-Caravan Group, Promised to 'Continue Their Fight on American Soil'," was misleading. The headline implied that the fight Omar promised to "continue" was related to the immigrant caravans. That was not the case, as our article did make clear. As far as The Western Journal has been able to determine, Witness for Peace did not make a public statement of support for the immigrant caravans until Oct. 16, 2018, almost a full year after Omar's trip. In addition, the article was published on Facebook with a blurb referring to Omar's trip as a "vacation." That was a flippant characterization that we were not qualified to make, as we do not know the nature of the trip beyond what has been reported in other media, none of which have described the trip in that way. We apologize to Rep. Omar for the misleading headline, which we have corrected, and the accompanying language on Facebook, which we have since deleted. We also apologize to our readers for any confusion we may have caused.

Over 100 Dead After Drinking Contaminated Alcohol
CORRECTION, Feb. 25, 2019: The image originally associated with this article was of bottles of name-brand liquors behind a bar. A reader pointed out that this image could be considered misleading, as the contaminated alcohol that led to the reported deaths was illicit "bootleg" alcohol. We therefore replaced the image with an AP file photo showing an "illicit booze shop" being burned by villagers after a similar incident in 2011. We apologize for any confusion or misunderstanding the original image may have caused.

Boeing 767 Cargo Jetliner Crashes in Texas, No Survivors
CORRECTION: Feb. 26, 2019: In our rush to get this breaking story out, it had the incorrect image associated with it briefly -- the cargo company, Atlas, was correct, but the image was of a 747, not a 767. The picture was replaced with one from the scene of the tragic accident as soon as it became available, which was fairly soon after publication. We apologize for any confusion the original picture may have caused.

Trump Explodes on ‘Witch Hunt’ After Richard Burr Reaches Conclusion on Russia: ‘We Have Found No Collusion’
CORRECTION, Feb. 25, 2019: Some readers of The Western Journal received a version of this article via email under the headline "Trump Explodes On Witch Hunt After Richard Barr Reaches Conclusion On Russia." Obviously, the headline should have read "Richard Burr." We apologize to Sen. Burr and our readers for the error and any confusion we may have caused.

Mike Huckabee: SCOTUS Just Made Landmark Ruling That Reins in the Power of Government
CORRECTION, Feb. 22, 2019: As first published, this Op-Ed mistakenly referred to the Fourth Amendment, when it should have referenced the Eighth Amendment. The Western Journal corrected that error after two readers brought it to our attention shortly after publication. We apologize for any confusion the erroneous reference may have caused.

[RETRACTED] Media Hysteria: Climate Change ‘Heat Records’ Are a Huge Data Manipulation
RETRACTION, Feb. 21, 2019: This Op-Ed has been retracted for failing to meet The Western Journal's Editorial Standards. After publication, a number of factual claims made in the Op-Ed were determined to have been untrue. The decision was then made to retract the piece. Before we had done that, questions were raised about the methodology used by its authors to reach their conclusions, but because the decision to retract had already been made, The Western Journal did not investigate the validity of those questions. We note them here only for the record. We apologize for publishing material in violation of our Editorial Standards of factual accuracy and for any confusion we might have caused by doing so.

100 Percent Renewable Cities – Is Your Mayor Smarter Than a 5th Grader?
CORRECTION, Feb. 25, 2019: We have made two corrections to this Op-Ed at the request of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, which contacted the writer directly about them. First, we have corrected "As part of the effort, the Ohio Power Siting Board approved the Icebreaker Wind Facility last July" to "As part of the effort, the Ohio Power Siting Board recommended the approval of the Icebreaker Wind Facility last July." Second, in the same paragraph, we corrected "six 3.5-gigawatt wind turbines" to "six 3.5-megawatt wind turbines." Though The Western Journal did not originate these errors, we did publish them, and are therefore responsible for them. We apologize for any confusion the misinformation may have caused.
