    Hello, and thanks for asking.

    We know this wasn't quite the morning you expected, and we appreciate you asking for help.

    It's a simple matter to unpublish the post, which is all you need to do.

    When you are logged in, go to your story. On the left, near the top but under the large story image, you'll see a list of options in black. Click on Edit. That will return you to seeing the draft mode of the story. There, look to the right sidebar. Underneath the large button that says Publish Changes, you'll see a lighter gray option, Unpublish this story. Click it. Your story will then be taken down from the site, to be placed instead on your Drafts list.

    That's all you have to do. It takes much longer to write these instructions than it does to carry them out.

    It's a tough way to learn about checking sources, but you also did the community a service by offering an example of how tempting it is to believe what we want to believe. Thanks for considering it a learning opportunity.
