Retraction, apology and promise

By lex

February 7, 2006

 

In an earlier post, “Passionate Beliefs,” I noted that NAACP director Julian Bond had said some pretty inflammatory things. I based those statements on a report from “World Net Daily.”

Brendan Loy has heard the mp3 of the discussion at Fayetteville State University, and found that Bond’s statements were something between what his defenders protest that he said, and what the WND alleged him to have said.

There’s  plenty of room to dislike and disagree with Bond’s statements without putting words in his mouth that he never said, or shading his meaning to buttress a case.

I quoted the WND in support of my post, for which I apologize. No such thing as “fake but accurate.” Ever.

I promise that I’ll never use WND as a source again either.

Fool me twice, shame on me.
