Morning Oopsy!

Two gay stories, one headline.

A story posted by Politico‘s Kevin Cirilli at 7:45 Monday morning headlined “Will Portman explains dad’s delay” had absolutely nothing to do with Will Portman or his father, Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio). Instead, the article was an aggregated item from the Los Angeles Times regarding the gay cousin of Chief Justice John Roberts, who will sit in this week on Supreme Court hearings concerning same-sex marriage.

The same story appeared elsewhere on the site under the appropriate “John Roberts’ gay cousin to attend hearing” headline.

Roughly one hour later… the report on Portman’s son was updated with the correct copy.

Politico had some headline trouble earlier this month. The site published an AP report on Mar. 11 about U.S. troops killed in Afghanistan. Politico‘s headline accidentally included “haha” at the end.
