Subject: Editor’s Note
On Jan. 18, 2017, JETmag.com ran a piece citing a Daily Beast story about a Trump White House advisor that included numerous allegations made in lawsuits in which the defendant was The Cordish Companies. On March 7, the Daily Beast, our source for the piece, ran a retraction and explanation of how that story contained accusations of discrimination that were later recanted in depositions that were not made public.
JET staffers should have taken an additional step to contact the individuals named in this article in order to determine whether the claims cited in the other story were fair and accurate. In the future, we will be much more diligent in those efforts.
We apologize for this, have removed the article and extend our regrets to the Cordish Companies, Cordish family and Reed Cordish for running this piece on our site.
