Morning report: Patch’s clarification and college kids have fun with NYT


On late Wednesday, Patch added a this-is-fiction notice to its story about gun-toting college kids after a newspaper pointed out there’s no Rocky Mountain State University in Durango. Belmont Patch editor Joan S. Dentler tells the paper: “Our apologies for any misleading information in the column — it was strictly meant as satire and not intended to mislead or misinterpret.” (daily-times.com) | (patch.com)
