AP corrects Rand Paul immigration story after Fox leaves out ‘don’t’ from transcript

The Associated Press have made a correction Sunday after leaving out a key word in the transcript of a Rand Paul interview.

Politico released a Bulletin Kill from the wire service withdrawing an article published earlier in the day with the inflammatory headline “Sen. Paul: Voters Want to Round Up Immigrants”:

Here’s the post: “The Associated Press has withdrawn its story about Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., saying he sees some in the (sic) his party favoring a 2016 presidential candidate with an immigration policy that would “round up people … and send them back to Mexico.” That quote was in the transcript of “Fox News Sunday” that was distributed after Paul’s interview on the show. A subsequent Associated Press review of an audio recording of the show determined that the transcript had dropped the word “don’t” from that quote, and Paul actually said, “They don’t want somebody who wants to round people up, put them in camps and send them back to Mexico.”

The piece still currently available at numerous websites including Philly.com reads (see below)

A Republican senator says he sees some in his party favoring a 2016 presidential candidate with an immigration policy that would “round people up … and send them back to Mexico.” […]

Paul says people want a party that’s “less aggressive on foreign policy” and drug laws. Paul says he sees voters wanting, quote, “somebody who wants to round people up, put in camps and send them back to Mexico.”

AP listed the transcript, which still available and INCORRECT at FoxNews.com. It does indeed read:

PAUL: I think people want a party that’s a little bit less aggressive on foreign policy, still believes in a strong national defense but less aggressive. They want — the young people want politicians who don’t want them in jail for 20 years for a nonviolent drug position charge. So, they want a little bit different phase. I think people want a little different phase on immigration frankly. They want someone somebody who wants to round people up, put in camps and send them back to Mexico.
