Did you see he apologized? Right after this tweet he posted, “Apologies for last tweet.” Doesn’t totally exculpate him, of course, but you know, he did apologize without qualification.
i saw. i still don’t give a fuck. he apologized almost immediately but he didn’t bother deleting his shitty tweet.
Lots of journalists (and journalists-ish, which is the category I’d put him in) don’t delete tweets as a rule. They post corrections. Idea is that you have to take responsibility for your mistake - you can’t pretend it didn’t happen. You just have to own up to it.Source: stayinbedgrowyourhair
