The Washington Post

Dutch and Danish, punching above their weight: a Loop correction.


(TWP)

The television fact-checker in the hilarious video, Thomas Buch-Andersen, “was speaking Danish!” Kessler wrote in an e-mail. “That’s why he starts with the example of the Danish prime minister.”

Kessler knows Dutch when he hears it, since he comes from a distinguished family in the Netherlands. (Seems the fact-checker brotherhood is global.) In any event, our humble apologies to the Dutch, the Danish and everyone else who may have been slighted.

Well, he didn’t give us another Pinocchio. And, besides, at least we got the first letter of the country right.

Al Kamen, an award-winning columnist on the national staff of The Washington Post, created the “In the Loop” column in 1993.
