Ummm...

Obama never spoke to governor about vacancy, aide says

But the headline last month:

Ill. governor meeting with Obama today


So they have to change the story:

In a statement, senior adviser David Axelrod said he was wrong when he told an interviewer last month that the two had spoken directly about the vacancy. "They did not then or at any time discuss the subject," Axelrod said.


How convenient.

Update:

Kaveman noted that the article was scrubbed from the site. I checked the link through where I found it to check to see if I copied it wrong and it was the same thing so.

Google cache still had it though:


Here's another site that had it linked w/ a summary leading to the same site. Wonder when it will be scrubbed?

Update: MiniTrue is on the ball:

KHQA Clarification
Wednesday, December 10, 2008 at 4:04 p.m.

KHQA TV wishes to offer clarification regarding a story that appeared last month on our website ConnectTristates.com. The story, which discussed the appointment of a replacement for President Elect Obama’in the U.S. Senate, became the subject of much discussion on talk radio and on blog sites Wednesday.

The story housed in our website archive was on the morning of November 5, 2008. It suggested that a meeting was scheduled later that day between President Elect Obama and Illinois Governor Blagojevich. KHQA has no knowledge that any meeting ever took place. Governor Blagojevich did appear at a news conference in Chicago on that date.
