Muddled Reid article posted

The Huffington Post claimed on Feb. 8 that Nevada’s Harry Reid chastised Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar for mistreating her staff when he was Senate Democratic leader.

The headline on the piece mentioned Reid, followed by a reference to a leaked campaign document in the subhead, suggesting there was documentation for the claim. But the subhead referenced a different issue, and the article never spelled out specifically what—if anything—Reid told Klobuchar in what the story said was a verbal exchange. The article quoted a Reid spokesperson saying Reid does not remember such a discussion. Reid called Klobuchar “one of the most brilliant, hardest-working members of the Senate.”

Reid “spoke to her privately and told her to change her behavior, multiple sources have confirmed to HuffPost,” the article reported.
