Numerous news agencies, including LifeNews, were misled into believing pro-abortion Vice President Joe Biden was upset over the original decision by Komen to cut Planned Parenthood funding. Turns out that wasn’t the case.

As US News and World Report reported today: “Washington Whispers published in error a story stating that Vice President Joe Biden’s wife, Dr. Jill Biden, had sent a message through Twitter saying that the vice president no longer supported the work of the organization Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The story was based on a fake Twitter account.”

LifeNews regrets the error as well. The original, now incorrect report, can be found here.
