A Twitter comment from the Associated Press, the international wire service begun in the 1800s to enable newspapers to share stories with each other, blasting Education Secretary Betsy DeVos for using a private jet for her travels has bounced back.

It seems the AP’s criticism – “Education Secretary DeVos uses a private jet to fly around the country to tour schools and attend other work events” –  failed to mention that the jet in question is owned by DeVos.

And she doesn’t even ask for or accept lodging expenses or per diem when she’s doing the taxpayers’ work.

The wire service eventually corrected itself, stating: “The AP has deleted a tweet on DeVos using a private jet for work because it didn’t note that she owns the plan. A new tweet is upcoming.”
