Christian Post Apologizes

Update on the Christian Post situation. They've posted a correction on their site:

We apologize for the article by Cindy Lee that was posted on Wednesday at 3 a.m. The article was unknowingly posted during the testing of a recently launched section on ChristianPost.com, in which freelancers and trainees were given an open forum to post article samples. We sincerely regret any inconvenience the article may have caused to all those involved. We thank you for your continued support.
Sounds like they were teaching people how to use their system, and someone decided to cut and paste a post to see what if they were doing it right. I can understand that -- things like that happen. And they probably didn't know how the story got there, and wondered if the site had been hacked. The author probably had no idea it had published to the site.

I still think an email to the original author is in order, though. The apology sounds sincere to me, though a bit late in coming -- it sounds like the folks at The Christian Post didn't really know what happened, or how it happened. I know at three in the morning, I'm not usually very coherent.
