Instapundit pointed out the false and misleading headline that NPR attached to its story slamming Texas Gov. Greg Abbott.
So NPR changed the headline … to something that is still wrong.
As the Washington Post confirms, Gov. Abbott sent the State Guard in to be onlookers, not “stave off” anything.
“During the training operation, it is important that Texans know their safety, constitutional rights, private property rights and civil liberties will not be infringed,” Abbott wrote. “By monitoring the Operation on a continual basis, the State Guard will facilitate communication between my office and commanders of the Operation to ensure that adequate measures are in place to protect Texans.”
Quite a difference from the NPR headline.
