WFAA image was UD model

WFAA image was UD model

An image that was purported to be the design for George W. Bush Presidential Library is actually the University of Dallas’ model for their failed bid for the complex. It was unveiled to the public at a January news conference announcing the school’s withdrawal from the library race.

An image of the complex appeared in a story dated March 14 about the Methodist Church’s approval to lease land for the library project.

Officials from WFAA told SMU Thursday that the image would be removed or the correct caption inserted, but as of Monday night neither had been done.

Credit for the image is given to The Dallas Morning News as a file photo. The caption says the image is “a model of the proposed Bush library.” Both the DMN and WFAA-Channel 8 are owned by the Belo Corporation.
