It’s a slow news week and it looks like this story of a passenger accusing United Airlines of giving away her first class seat to Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee of Texas isn’t going away anytime fast.

And to make matters worse, United is telling the media more about what’s going on than the company is telling Simon:

United really has to prove once and for all that it was Simon who cancelled the reservation, especially since Lee is calling her a racist over it.
