Subject: Disney / ABC Reporter's careless Al Franken tweet sets Twitter rage mob after innocent senator
Another day, another careless media misstep.
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I., did not dodge questions Thursday
regarding allegations his Democratic colleague Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn.,
sexually assaulted a woman in 2006.
Rather, Whitehouse appears to have made an innocuous and lighthearted
comment to a group of journalists in the Capitol, which an ABC News
reporter badly misrepresented later in her retelling on social media.
