Just to clarify

When MSNBC is caught promulgating fabricated quotes, this is all the retraction you can expect:

Limbaugh denies he said quote, ‘slavery has its merits,’ it was a quote that appeared on MSNBC this past Monday and Tuesday. MSNBC attributed that quote to a football player who was opposed to Limbaugh’s NFL bid. However, we have been unable to verify that quote independently. So, just to clarify.

(Via Instapundit.)

I particularly like the closing “just to clarify”. Since when is “it was completely made up” a clarification?

UPDATE: CNN’s Rick Sanchez finally sort-of apologizes. Not on the air though; on Twitter.
