    Huffington Post apologizes after falsely accusing Fox of doctoring Romney speech


    The Huffington Post has issued an apology for reporting that Fox News Channel had apparently aired doctored footage of Mitt Romney introducing his running mate, Paul Ryan.

    The assertion revolved around Romney’s introduction of Ryan as his running mate on Saturday morning, when Romney on one occasion accidentally called Ryan “the next president of the United States.”

    Footage that Fox News later aired showed Romney correctly introducing Ryan as “the next vice president of the United States,” leading HuffPo to report that Fox “appears to” have doctored the footage to erase Romney’s mistake.

    In reality, Romney introduced Ryan correctly several times as a candidate for “vice president,” and that is where Fox pulled the clip in question from.

    The original HuffPo piece credited “a reader” with the now-debunked news tip. “A reader points The Huffington Post to footage from 12:33 ET on Fox News that appears to have been doctored,” read the original story.

    HuffPo has since taken down the report and issued an apology for the mistake:

    A HuffPost story about Mitt Romney making a mistake during a speech incorrectly indicated that Fox News had edited the video clip to correct Romney calling Paul Ryan the “next President of the United States.” Fox News actually aired footage of another part of Romney’s speech in which he did say “Vice President.” We regret the error, have removed the story, and apologize for the mistake.

    Someone was arrested for lying? I thought Fox went to court to ensure that lying was legal.

    The difference is that it appears Huffington Post apologized.

    That's what separates it from a Murdoch enterprise like Fox. Have they apologized for the terrorist fist jab yet?

    Boo! An unjustified low blow that has nothing to do with the OP. As though a man is responsible for the actions of others not in his employ, his family or even his friends. Some dolt blogger in his mother's basement publishing racist crap is not Dr Paul's fault.

    Besides, accusing a Libertarian of racism is akin to suggesting the Pope doesn't believe in the divinity of Christ. It it were true, he wouldn't be a Libertarian and the Pope couldn't be Catholic.
