WOULD SOMEONE EXPLAIN TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS THAT Spitfires aren’t “Fighter Jets?”

UPDATE: Reader Michael Blum emails:

Amusingly, WaPo has corrected their headline and the article removing the mentions of “fighter jets”.

Of course, they also don’t bother mentioning any corrections to the article itself anywhere.

Would hate to have people think that journalists and “layers of fact-checkers and editors” don’t know what they’re writing about.

Indeed.
