EU Flag Ripped Down as Right-Wing Party Sweeps Italian Elections
RETRACTION, Sept. 28, 2022: The Western Journal retracted this article after Reuters reported that the video shared on Twitter showed "a 2013 protest where an Italian neo-fascist group tore down the European Union flag at the European Commission headquarters in Rome" rather than an event that occurred more recently. While we had noted in the article that we had been unable to verify the video's provenance, our headline claimed that the video recorded events that took place this week, which is not true.

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.
