In my piece for the NYT found here examining Simpson's stunning fall from grace, I quote Simpson attorney Yale Galanter as saying:
“I don’t like to use the word payback,” said Mr. Simpson’s lawyer, Yale Galanter. “I can tell you from the beginning my biggest concern was whether or not the jury would be able to separate their very strong feelings about Mr. Simpson and judge him fairly and honestly.”
That's an accurate quote, as you can hear for yourself because I posted the raw audio of the Galanter post-verdict press conference in our podcast feed. You can click here to hear it. This comment comes up within the first two or three minutes.
But on the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's site, the same paragraph here reads:
"This was just payback," Simpson lawyer Yale Galanter said Saturday. "They were on an agenda."
WHAT!??!? That's completely, utterly not what this man said. And, also, he said it Friday night, not Saturday.
How the &%&#@ does this HAPPEN? I'm not even sure what to do about it. Here's the screen shot:
Somebody needs to lose their job. This is a journalistic nightmare.
