The Women’s Media Center (WMC), a non-profit “progressive women’s media organization,” was founded in 2005 by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan, and Gloria Steinem. Two hours ago it published the above tweet linking to Jezebel’s attack on Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker. Just one problem: Jezebel had already retracted its ill-informed article.

WMC’s Board of Directors includes Dee Dee Myers, Geneva Overholser and other luminaries. A full list of Board members can be found here.
