Billionaire, millionaire, same difference? Agence France Presse misidentified former U.S. presidential candidate Mitt Romney as a “multi-billionaire” when he’s really just a multi-millionaire.

The error was made in the AFP’s Dec. 23 article on comments by Romney’s son Tagg Romney about his father’s interest in being president.

iMediaEthics has asked the AFP for a correction and will update with any response.
