Management would like to take this opportunity to correct a number of items which originally appeared as statements of fact over the past 399 editions of the award-winning weekly column Jeffrey Morgan’s Media Blackout. An investigation into the matter has concluded that the statements made by Mr. Morgan were, in fact, completely false and deliberately made to misinform the reader including, but not limited to, the obfuscating use of a fictional alias. As a result of this serious breach of ethics, and in keeping with our policy of transparency, Mr. Morgan has been dismissed from his position and his column will be reiterated beginning next week until a suitable replacement can be found. Management regrets the errors.
