Sorry Neil

Earlier in September, I posted a NewsGem, "Farm Band-Aid?" that linked to a Chicago Tribune story that examined the finances of the group behind the Farm Aid charity concerts. Neil Young, one of my favorite rockers and a Farm Aid founder, later denounced the story as being distorted and unfair. Today the Tribune's public editor, Don Wycliff, reviewed the original story and found that, while it didn't contain any factual inaccuracies, it failed to capture the full scope of the help Farm Aid gives to farmers. As a result, I'm withdrawing the original story from NewsGems.,1,5765849.column?coll=chi-opinionfront-hed&ctrack=1&cset=true
