MSNBC Offers “Clarification” On Rush quote-No Apology

This is yellow journalism at its sleaziest, and most malicious:

During the 3:00PM ET hour of live coverage on MSNBC Friday, co-host David Shuster admitted that racially charged quotes he and other hosts attributed to Rush Limbaugh had not been verified: “MSNBC attributed that quote to a football player who was opposed to Limbaugh’s NFL bid. However, we have been unable to verify that quote independently. So, just to clarify.” Shuster did not formally retract the quote or apologize.

Yeah, they went ahead and aired a dishonest smear about someone they don’t like without verifying it in any way. So…anyway…moving right along.

In other MSNBC News Meghan McCain posted a picture of herself on twitter and then issued a “non-apology- apology”. Shocking, but true.
