The power of speaking out


This week on a 6 a.m. public radio station news I heard the broadcaster say that President Obama “and his wife” are in Europe.

They are on Official Government Business.

I wrote an email to the station’s news manager; he blamed AP “who should have known [her official title] better,” and apologized he hadn’t caught it.

This morning on the 6 a.m. public radio station news that same broadcaster read, “President Obama and The First Lady.”
