Several readers have written to let us know that the email address for Tom Hays, the reporter who wrote the false AP story about a Republican crowd booing the announcement of Bill Clinton’s hospitalization in West Allis, Wisconsin, and President Bush doing “nothing to stop them.” It is email@example.com.
I have written Mr. Hays to ask whether he has anything to say in his own defense. I also asked him whether he was actually at the rally. I promised Mr. Hays that if he has anything to say for himself, we will gladly print it, and millions will see his defense as it circulates through the blogosphere.
I would encourage you to send polite emails to Mr. Hays at the above address, asking him to explain why he wrote a false article. I’d like to have a dialogue with Mr. Hays somewhat like the one we enjoyed with Jim Boyd.
