After days of hot pursuit by your humble correspondent, Keith Olbermann did, in fact, apologize for erroneously reporting that Rudy Giuliani said if Democrats were elected, they’d invite Osama into the White House. But then he gave Giuliani all three positions in his “Worst Person in the World” feature anyway. More evidence to support my column from yesterday.
In his correction itself, Olbermann blamed the error on the AP story–even though he had broadcast the video of Giuliani’s remarks on his show. Rebroadcasting the tape yesterday, Olbermann introduced it by saying it showed “why there was widespread confusion.” Actually, the tape shows that Giuliani said Assad, not Osama. Olbermann also said, “There are obviously mitigating circumstances regarding this mistake,” because the AP took 47 hours to correct it. He left out the fact that I documented the error in full detail to his spokeswoman around noon on Thursday and spoke to her office three times during the day about the correction, and yet Olbermann still waited until late on a Friday night to set the record straight.
Anyway, here is the video of Olbermann’s “apology,” via the much more tech-savvy than me Hotair.
