Ernesto Villegas, the director of the rag that first posted the false news about the Venezuelan soccer team’s visas, has decided to double down.
He insists the rumor was true, and is now claiming success, saying that perhaps thanks to his brollo, the guys got their visas!
Ernesto: just apologize. You screwed up. It’s not that hard. Take it from me, you’ll feel better about yourself.
(I know. It’s a slow news day…)
