Sanders Denies "Absolutely False" Axios Report He Is Suspending Campaign

Update (1225ET): Apparently, Wednesday's "erroneous" report that Bernie Sanders was suspending his campaign wasn't the product of the sometimes unreliable Washington rumor mill, but a genuine mistake on behalf of one of America's most trusted newswire services.

The suspicion is that the story that was initially "sourced" to Axios by Bloomberg headline writers was actually a report about the Sanders campaign suspending its Facebook advertising, and that the headline writers and editors missed the last two words in the headline.
