I misquoted someone on Thursday, I misheard what they said. They were speaking away from me, to a committee, and I misheard one word they stated.
I published the misquote, the person read it, and they quickly let me know by stating, "Hey Joey, I didn't say that, I said 'mixed'"
Simple enough, I told them I correct immediately, which I did. I published the correction, very transparently noted it in the post, and apologized publicly for the error.
This person didn't tweet an attack on my character, didn't make wild claims that I'm "fake news", and didn't get upset about the misquote.
