O'Reilly Apologizes to CNN - But Not to “Snide, Surly” Rick Sanchez, Who Blasted Him

Reported by Ellen - June 7, 2009 -

I had a really great post all set to go, and then News Hounds' Ellen forwarded me a clip of CNN's Rick Sanchez blasting Bill O'Reilly for his lack of fact-checking and truth-telling about CNN's coverage of Private William Long's murder. I then learned, later, that Bill O'Reilly had issued an apology – a “rare correction,” as he put it – to CNN (as backhanded an apology as it was).

So I scrapped the post. Sanchez' commentary, as well as O'Reilly's apology, after the jump.

P.S. O'Reilly promised that on Monday he'd be comparing CNN's handling of the Private William Long and Dr. George Tiller murder stories. Be sure to look for a post on this – you can bet he won't take being forced to publicly apologize lightly!
