Axios Regrets Wording Of Rod Rosenstein Story

Jonathan Swan writes at Axios:

I regret the way I wrote this morning’s version of the story. By saying Rosenstein had “verbally resigned” to Kelly rather than “offered his resignation,” I conveyed a certainty that this fluid situation didn’t deserve. It’s an important nuance, and I regret the wording.

In the same post, Swan notes that the DOJ had prepared a draft statement on Rosenstein’s departure “written in the voice of Jeff Sessions.”

“Rod Rosenstein has served the Department of Justice with dedication and skill for 28 years. His contributions are many and significant. We all appreciate his service and wish him well.”
