Olbermann to Correct/Apologize for Rudy Quote

Keith Olbermann will air a correction to his report in which he incorrectedly quoted Rudy Giuliani as saying that Democrats would invite Osama bin Laden to the White House, according to an MSNBC spokeswoman.

“There will be a correction on tonight’s show, and Keith will apologize,” said spokeswoman Alana Russo.

The controversy started on Monday when the AP ran a story quoting Guiliani as saying if Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton were elected “we’ll invite (Iranian President Mahmoud) Ahmadinejad to the White House, we’ll invite Osama (bin Laden) to the White House.” Keith Olbermann fumed on his Tuesday show, “A year before the election and Rudy Giuliani is already publicly contending the Democrats are willing to invite Osama bin Laden to the White House to negotiate. Sure they are, buster.” Along with guest Arianna Huffington, he accused Giuliani of being a liar.

In fact, Giuliani said Assad, not Osama. As in, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Following a report on this blog, the AP corrected its story. Though video of Giuliani’s actual remarks aired on his show, Olbermann had avoided correcting the error up until now.
