Well Paint Me Yellow and Call me a Banana!

The National Post, according to CNN, has run an editorial apologizing for its article re. Iran forcing Jews to wear yellow ribbons! The extended grovel runs on page 2 of the print edition but does not seem to be available on-line.

No word on how many lashes Amir Taheri received, or who if anyone has been fired over the matter. So there's still more to blog about! Oh Joy!

While not a fan of the NP, I think you have to give some credit for admitting their mistake and apologizing for it. I think its a hard thing to do.

I can't see how they could have possibly got away with not admitting a mistake. So I'm not going to give them credit for doing something the could not help but do.

Did you read their retraction? It was nearly as rotten as the original story. Obviously they don't regret the yellow journalisn, or printing the story; they regret getting caught at it.

Actually no anonymous...I did not read their retraction.... if it was not available on line so it could be just as lame as you say it was. It's not like I would buy one though. I don't feel that would be an ethical purchase on my part.
