RETRACTION: While the information in this article was largely accurate, it was written in such a way that it appeared The Western Journal was conflating two separate incidents into one. Sorting out those two stories to clarify the incidents was possible, but it would have resulted in an article very different from the original, even though it would have reached largely the same conclusion. It seems dishonest to publish a completely different article in the same space as the original. In addition, a correction had already been issued because of a misidentification of one individual at a White House event as a reporter, adding to the overall confusion regarding the story. Thus, the decision was made to retract the article completely.
