This is quite a roller coaster for @WTOP
@WTOP This is the full WTOP story that the news station pulled over concerns they didn't prominently mention Wernher von Braun was a Nazi before becoming an American citizen. The story was written by digital producer @dickuliano.
@WTOP @DickUliano If you're wondering why WTOP removed their story, it's because @vermontgmg made it viral in an early morning tweet that literally suggested readers "be outraged."
@WTOP @DickUliano @vermontgmg The story's author, @DickUliano, is a former AP and CNN journalist. After reading a cached version of the story as originally published, I highly doubt @WTOP removed it for any reason other than they were scared of the sudden backlash they got on social media.
@WTOP @DickUliano @vermontgmg A quick Google Search result reveals numerous other stories about the subject published over the last few years that WTOP, as of this tweet, has not altered or removed.
