"American Spectator" reportedly removes article incriminating their editor in D.C. "protest violence"

According to the Washington Post, conservative publication "American Spectator" first changed the wording in, then completely deleted, a story implicating the Spectator editor-in-chief as an "agent provocateur" in the altercation at the National Air and Space Museum on Saturday that led to the closing of the facility.
