Mea Culpa: I Fell for Crystal Bridges Hoax

Can I attribute this to my continued post-Israel jet lag?

Falling for a hoax e-mail about Alice Walton‘s and Crystal Bridges’ supposed solidarity with protests by Walmart workers, I posted her “statement” (which I’ve now taken down). What was I thinking?

This falls into the same category as the Whitney hoax, which I saw for what it was.

My deepest apologies for this major gaffe.
