The Jawa Report: ABC Trying to Hide Foley Mistake? Changes Text of ‘Blotter’ Entry

This post pointed out that ABC had mislead the public by misstating the age of one of the former pages who was instant messaged by Mark Foley as under 18.

ABC News has changed the copy on their story about the Foley IMs:

ABC News now has obtained 52 separate instant message exchanges, which former pages say were sent by Foley, using the screen name Maf54, to two different boys who began their exchanges with Foley at the age of 16 and 17, and continued through the age of 18.

But the original wording is still in the Google cache:

ABC News now has obtained 52 separate instant message exchanges, which former pages say were sent by Foley, using the screen name Maf54, to two different boys under the age of 18.

And NO Correction is noted on the ABC site.

Fraud on the public?

Now is ABC News covering-up the story?

And by the way, who gave ABC reporter Brian Ross the IM”s?

Update:

Bryan over at Hot Air has Jordan Edmund at 17 rather than 18.  And there is more:

And new information emerges.

House GOP leaders on Tuesday asked for an investigation into an allegation that former Rep. Mark Foley showed up drunk outside the House page dorm near the nation’s capitol, FOX News confirmed.
