Accuracy in Media

As The Federalist pointed out, Mark Halperin’s “sorry but not sorry” excuse is really lame:

“What is it about the phrase “I’m sorry” that makes professional politicos so loath to utter it? Why is it so hard for prominent political types to simply apologize and ask for forgiveness without trying to force a nonsense justification into the apology? Following a disastrous and blatantly racist interview with Sen. Ted Cruz last month, Mark Halperin finally issued what he characterized as an apology earlier today.”

“Halperin’s apology press release consisted of 149 words. Precisely 11 of those words constituted an apology. The other 138 constituted Halperin’s justification for his absurd line of questioning. The full text of the apology press release spanned eight sentences.”
