Washington Post Correction: Nathan Phillips ‘Was Never Deployed to Vietnam’

In a January 20 report titled — “‘It was getting ugly’: Native American drummer speaks on his encounter with MAGA-hat-wearing teens” — the Post‘s Cleve R. Wootson Jr., Antonio Olivo, and Joe Heim erroneously stated Philips is a veteran of the Vietnam War despite having not been deployed.

No fact checking. No accountability. No repercussions. And it’s not just WaPo- it’s the entire mainstream media universe.
