Usually when I apologize to someone I say "Im sorry for my actions or behavior that caused you harm". I dont really thin..."something bad happened and we apologize about that" really equals an admission of responsibility and an apology. Nor does saying "well, we wuz tricked and thats why we reacted the way we did" qualify much as an apology.
I suspect its all just going to get very ugly...
All Breitbart did was provide tapes. What "the media" was supposed to do about this, I don't know. Their job, supposedly, is to report what happened objectively, which would mean just showing the actual tapes. To not report them because they don't like the guy who provided it would be a gross violation of media ethics.
Incidentally, Breitbart is the kind of investigative journalist that Bob Woodward only dreams of himself as, and the world needs more people like him. And you'd have to prove that every single tape he provided regarding ACORN was fabricated/manipulated/taken out of context before you'd have a good argument that he didn't do a better job at shedding light on a seedy organization than any other so-called journalist.

They've made an effort to clarify the situation - why should they apologize? they were going on the truncated tape and that's all they had.
I'm not apologizing - I still see her as a racist bitch who got away with it.

Bahaha... okay, I just have to share this comment on a conservative blog's post about this. I swear it's not said with any hint of sarcasm.
Thank God for Glenn Beck, the reasoned voice of Conservatism.
Not a partisan hack like Breitbart….
They have yet to acknowledge that. She may have overcome her bigotry, but they have not.
Just because the libs throw a stick, doesn't mean you have to chase it.
