Yikes: AP Just Made A Colossal Error About ‘Beto’

Did you know Beto O’Rourke is Hispanic?

Well, no, he isn’t.

He’s of Irish descent. He used to be known as Robert when he went to college.

Ssh! Don’t tell the AP.

Whoops, someone told them.

They’ve now changed it, stealth editing without noting the change.
