In the spirit of "journalistic integrity," I need to be "transparent" and disclose that Michael Barbaro of the New York Times contacted me to let me know that the tie he purchased at Wal-Mart was actually blue, not red (I should have guessed). If I had known, maybe I could have called the post "Devil With a Blue Tie On" or maybe "I'm in a Blue York State of Mind." Oh well.
By the way, Marshall Manson did not direct me to say that Barbaro's tie was red. Just chalk it up to my poor vision. They had the lights turned down in the Embassy Suites meeting room. I think they were afraid Chris Kofinis was going to show up and join the Q&A (was that G. Gordon Liddy out in the hallway working security?)
I feel ashamed at this careless mistake and hope Mr. Barbaro doesn't think any less of us pro-Wal-Mart bloggers because of me.
