CORRECTION, Sept. 21, 2022: The Western Journal has corrected the headline and the first sentence of this commentary, both of which stated that the officer "bled out," i.e., died, after being shot. We are happy to say that that is not the case, as the commentary made clear further down.

Body Language Experts Notice Meghan Markle's Behavior During Queen Memorial, Reveal What It Means
CORRECTION, Sept. 15, 2022: The Western Journal has corrected one sentence in this article that referred to Markle traveling "across the pond" -- i.e., from the U.S. to the U.K. over the Atlantic Ocean -- upon the queen's death.

Nightmare: Man Tries Driving His EV Through Montana, Plugs in for 10 Hours and Only Gets 20% Charged
CORRECTION, Sept. 7, 2022: We have corrected the headline of this story, which erroneously claimed that the electric vehicle in question was a Tesla. As one sharp-eyed reader commented: "He was, in fact, driving a Hyundai, which does not have a reliable charging network in place. So, yes, driving a non-Tesla across the country can be a nightmare. Driving a Tesla across the country is simple."

[RETRACTED] Kamala Harris Caught in Another Lie as Story on 'Youth Activism' Crumbles Under Microscope
RETRACTION, Sept. 7, 2022: This commentary was based on a New York Post piece that said, among other things, "The UFW launched its third and longest California grape boycott in June 1984, just over four months before Harris’ 20th birthday, and it lasted until 2000 when Harris was 36." While technically accurate, the boycott in question never took hold and was never effective -- the Post actually linked to two sources admitting as much. The Post claimed that ignoring that boycott -- which the rest of the world also largely ignored -- rendered false Harris' claim that she would "never cross a picket line." Hence, in our headline, we referred to Harris' statement as a "Lie." The problem with the Post's claim is that there were no picket lines to cross -- there was no strike from 1984 to 2000, only a protest against pesticide use. From that premise, we then posed the question, "So what kept her from eating grapes for the prior eighteen years?", meaning the years prior to 1984 when she turned 20 and claimed to have eaten her first grape. The answer to that question is the two prior grape boycotts -- including the well-known "Delano grape strike" -- that did in fact involve strikes and picket lines and lasted until 1978, when Harris was 15 or so. That she would continue that behavior for a few more years isn't at all unreasonable, and certainly well enough within the realm of possibility as to make our labeling of her statement a "Lie," as we did in our headline, unfair. The Western Journal has therefore retracted this commentary, and apologize to Ms. Harris for the error.

Massie Reveals Photos of IRS Recruiting Program, Looks Like Audition for Next 'Police Academy'
CORRECTION, Aug. 19, 2022: There were two aspects of this commentary that may have been inadvertently misleading to some readers when it was first published. First, we wrote of the Inflation Reduction Act that "it increases IRS funding by $80 billion, nearly six times its current annual budget of $13.7 billion." We failed to note, however, that that increase is over the next 10 years, so it actually represents not a sixfold increase in the IRS budget but more like a 60% increase -- still healthy, obviously, but not so much as we implied. We have corrected that statement. Second, while we included a link to the 2017 source of some of the pictures shared by Rep. Massie, we failed to call attention clearly in the commentary to the fact that the pictures he shared were not of training that had been specifically funded by the additional IRS budget appropriation included in the IRA. That may have led some readers to believe that the photographs were the direct result of the IRA's becoming law, which is not the case. Other pictures were from a similar event earlier this year, which also took place prior to the passage of the IRA, and we should have called that out as well.
