The action taken by LLB gives the Idaho Statesman an additional incentive to review the interview notes or tapes and make corrections if indicated.
Their interests may or may not lie with correcting a feature story interview with an individual, but you can bet they do lie with reviewing the interview transcripts when another source of industry news reports (as that is exactly what has happened here with Robin's point-by-point refuting of the article) that the Statesman published an inaccurate article. They have a reputation to uphold, too.
I'm sorry for Robin that she feels she was misquoted or had an unintended slant put on her words, but Nora said it well.
It appears that she made a very big, very public mistake. People do.
