Washington Times links Obama daughters with a story on Chicago student violence

By Super Admin

Washington, May 16 (ANI): A "technical glitch" in the Washington Times web site caused a photo of backpack-toting first daughters Sasha and Malia Obama to be posted next to a story about the high number of slain Chicago Public Schools students.

The story paired up the picture of the Obama girls above the headline "36 Chicago area students killed sets record," Solomon's statement read.

An editor noticed the photograph but wrongly chose to write a caption for it instead of taking it off, the statement said.

The photo was later taken down.

"At no time did the newspaper intend to link the Obama children to the school story," Solomon wrote.

"We also hope that this glitch does not distract from the important and well-reported subject of the story: the crisis of school violence in one of the nation's largest cities," he added. (ANI)
