Reader reaction to Reuters news
I had a uncle…
Obama admits reference to Auschwitz was wrong
Obama said, “A uncle…” not “An uncle.” You have your quote wrong. Obama made a gramatical error that you are correcting. He is all over the radio and TV saying the statement incorrectly. Why aren’t you quoting him the way he said it?
We do not intentionally clean up grammatical errors for anybody. Various news organizations reported the quote with “a uncle” or “an uncle” – some used both versions. You can see here, as the reader points out, Obama did say “a uncle.”
