Daily Caller Retracts False Story On WH Easter Egg Roll

Posted today by the right-wing Daily Caller:

Retraction notice: Following the publication of this article, the Daily Caller became aware of additional context that undercut the central assertion of this article and its newsworthiness.

The ban of religious symbolism on eggs as part of the White House Easter egg art contest has been longstanding, dating back decades, and the Biden administration did not make any modifications to this rule.

While the Caller did not explicitly state at any point that the rule was new, this additional context rendered the main thrust of the article misleading to readers, who could reasonably have come to the conclusion that the rule was new.

With that additional context included, the news value of the article was significantly diminished, leading the senior leadership at the Caller to the decision to retract. We sincerely regret the error and are taking the necessary steps to ensure similar mistakes can be avoided in the future.

Don’t expect similar retractions from the Family Research Council or the dozens of MAGA World figures who have spewed the same lies. Notably, the above-linked retraction has not appeared on the Daily Caller X account.
