Today The Washington Post was forced to issue a correction in an article about Ron DeSantis. The correction came after WaPo reported that DeSantis had signed a budget of $101.5 billion.
As reported by multiple outlets and on Florida’s website, the budget was $109.9 billion.
Florida Press Secretary Christina Pushaw first called out WaPo in a series of tweets highlighting multiple inaccuracies in their reporting.

“In addition to the obviously biased framing here, @washingtonpost AGAIN made a factual error that is easily checked. The FY 22-23 budget recently signed by @GovRonDeSantis is NOT $101.5 billion. It’s easy to find the actual number. 30 seconds on Google. What are reporters for?” Pushaw tweeted.
Pushaw ended her Twitter thread by highlighting that the Washington Post lied about Ron DeSantis denying medicaid coverage to people who identify as transgender.
The Washington Post claims that DeSantis’ guidance against using Medicaid funds to pay for gender transition surgery issued Thursday “paves the way for DeSantis to enact a rule that would ban Medicaid coverage for transgender people of any age.”
