Earlier this week, actress Jenna Fischer (Pam from “The Office”) got tens of thousands of retweets for an incorrect claim about the GOP tax bill and its effect on teacher deductions. A follow-up clarification was made, but naturally that didn’t get even a fraction of the retweets of the initial tweet. Fischer cleared things up once and for all today:
I've deleted a tweet and would like to issue an apology. Please read and re-tweet to help me spread the word! Thanks! pic.twitter.com/R6CNyn4bVV

And that’s how it’s done.
Whoa. This is good. Very good.
There are many in the news industry who could learn a thing from this. https://t.co/1xDJLdZYQh
