Lynn Forester de Rothschild is not on the DNC

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

The headline on the CNN story reads:

Prominent Clinton backer and DNC member to endorse McCain

But the text says:

Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a prominent Hillary Clinton supporter and member of the Democratic National Committee’s Platform Committee, will endorse John McCain for president on Wednesday, her spokesman tells CNN.
Ms. de Rothschild was part of the DNC Platform Committee, but she was not and is not a member of the Democratic National Committee - which would have made her a superdelegate - which she was not.

And kudos to Ben Smith for quickly correcting his post.

You can let CNN know how you feel about their "reporting" here.
