Oops! Cleveland Station Says Sorry for Wrong Report

WEWS in Cleveland says they made a big mistake on their website on Friday.

The station apologized on their site for an inaccurate post saying Pilot Flying J CEO Jimmy Haslam had been indicted.

The station said on its website that the post has been removed, and that "an internal investigation is underway to determine how the erroneous report was posted."

The Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that Haslam has never been charged in connection with the FBI's ongoing investigation into fuel rebate fraud that came to light in April 2013 after the FBI and IRS raided the company's corporate offices in Knoxville, Tenn. Haslam has denied any knowledge of the scheme.

Haslam, who is also the owner of the Cleveland Browns, said in September that Pilot Flying J was working to pay back, with interest, any trucking company that was duped in the rebate fraud.
