The new version has a clarification at the beginning that states, “The following story replaces an earlier version that inadvertently ran on FOXBusiness.com. The reporter mistakenly sent into the system a press release issued by the American Farm Bureau Federation instead of the story she had prepared on this subject. FOX Business regrets the error.”
The original mistake was discovered earlier Monday by Media Matters for America.
The new version has the following lead: Thanksgiving dinner is going to be slightly more costly this year, up roughly 1.3%, says the American Farm Bureau Federation [AFBF] in a press release.
