We can't even remember the last time we saw one of these, but here it is: a prominent NewsMax correction.
A Nov. 14 article tries to soft-pedal it by calling it a "clarification" in the headline, but it is in fact a full-fledged correction. NewsMax fully admits that in a Nov. 11 item, it atributed a quote by Sen. John Kerry to Sen. John McCain. Somebody (since it does not have a history of doing so on its own) sent NewsMax into full mea culpa mode here:
The quote attributed to Sen. McCain was published in error. Sen. McCain never made such a comment.
The quote should have been attributed to Senator John Kerry (D-MA), as reported by the New York Times on Friday November 11.
NewsMax apologies for the error and duly notes the correction.
Wow, NewsMax. We didn't know you had it in you to honorably apologize for making a factual error. As long as you're in a correcting mood, how about setting the record straight about your lie that y'all never claimed that U2 was holding a fund-raiser for Rick Santorum?
