TruthOut Kinda, Sorta, Maybe Apologizes for Fake Rove Indicted Story

Poor little lefties... All that champagne chilled to celebrate Rove's frog march for naught. All the table dancing, end of Bush Regime excitement is meaningless. Moonbat hearts are breaking across America tonight.

We have passed the initially reported "24 hour" time frame. We have passed the "24 business hours" clarification. The week is over and all is quiet on the FitzMas front.

According to Marc Ash over at TruthOut...

"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. "

Partial apology? Is that an apology issued after 24 hours or 24 business hours? It wasn't that the story was a complete fabrication - TruthOut just jumped the gun and reported it too soon. Basically that means that if Rove is indicted any time in this millenium, TruthOut can claim they were the first on the story.

You know you've really screwed the pooch when the inmates at the DUmp turn on you. Will Pitt and Jason Leopold have tombstoned their own selves. Couldn't have happened to a nicer bunch of liars...

As tribute to the final chapter of Leopold and Lobe, I give you this original composition by fellow FReeper Charles Henrickson...

Indict Fitzmas (Sung to the tune of White Christmas)
I'm fixing to indict Fitzmas
Just 'cause it never seems to show.
With the networks massing
And hours passing,
I hear crickets chirping "no".

I'm fixing to indict Fitzmas
With every angry post I write.
May our frogs start marching tonight,
Because all these Fitzmases aren't right.
