“The Kamala Harris story — an incorrect story I was ordered to write and which I failed to push back hard enough against– was my breaking point.”

The original article read “kam on in, unaccompanied migrant kids brought from the U.S. – Mexico border to a new shelter in Long Beach, were given a copy of the book ‘ superheroes are Everywhere’ in ‘Welcome kits’ that were given to them. This post was accompanied by an editor’s note which says
“The original version of the article said migrants kids were getting Harris’ book in a welcome kit, but has been updated to note that only one known copy of the book was given to a child.”
Washington Post that confirmed the entire story to be false after checking all the facts related to the matter. The book which was given to the child was not donated by Vice – President but by residents of Long Beach.
