ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Ahead of the "Fake But Accurate" News Cycle

Woops... perhaps it was 24 business weeks?

The TruthOut Non-Apology Apology is here, although the link is getting swarmed. Here's a snippet:

On Saturday afternoon, May 13, 2006, TruthOut ran a story titled, "Karl Rove Indicted on Charges of Perjury, Lying to Investigators." The story stated in part that top Bush aide Karl Rove had earlier that day been indicted on the charges set forth in the story's title.

The time has now come, however, to issue a partial apology to our readership for this story. While we paid very careful attention to the sourcing on this story, we erred in getting too far out in front of the news-cycle. In moving as quickly as we did, we caused more confusion than clarity. And that was a disservice to our readership and we regret it.

As such, we will be taking the wait-and-see approach for the time being. We will keep you posted.

sorry, but this has nothing to do with a news cycle and everything to do with the Left's willingness to repeat any information, no matter how idiotic it is. The fact that this is being chalked up to the "news cycle" (and assuming the indictments have been handed down) means that the MSM has this information, but is unwilling to cover it even though TruthOut has reported it. As has been demonstrated over the past few days, Jason Leopold and TruthOut can't exactly be considered trusted sources - and their unwillingness to come clean with something other than a half-assed apology further undermines their credibility.

No doubt that the Moonbats will continue to profess their faith in Truthout and that they're right, even though they're wrong.

Back to stockpiling the booze, Moonbats! Make sure you have plenty of ice!

If its an apology, what part of the story are they retracting?
