Earlier today, I passed on a headline on the WIS site that said, “SC Gov Haley says she regrets ‘little girl’ remark.”
WIS later took down that headline because they realized what I did when I read their story. There was nothing supporting the implication of the headline, which was that the governor had apologized.
Later in the day, Gina Smith over at The State explained what had actually happened. Here’s the operative paragraph:
“The story painted a grossly inaccurate picture and was unprofessionally done,” Haley said in a statement. “But my ‘little girl’ comment was inappropriate and I regret that. Everyone can have a bad day. I’ll forgive her bad story, if she’ll forgive my poor choice of words.”
Yep. In her expression of “regret,” she went further in trying to insult the reporter.
That’s our governor. If she does something she shouldn’t obviously it’s someone else’s fault.
