Under Pressure From Blogs, MSNBC Kinda-Sorta Corrects An Error

A "misunderstanding," you see. I suppose that's the best that could be hoped for.

The correction involves Aaron Broussard's falsely ginned-up account of his phone calls to his friend's stricken mother in New Orleans. Broussard read his "spontaneous emotional outpouring" from a script, so, as John From Wuzzadem cracks, if it was a "misunderstanding," it was one of those carefully-prepared and fact-checked sorts of "misunderstandings" that the media makes.

Multiple Errors: Called him "Andre" and said Russert, rather than Broussard, read from a script. Thanks to John from Wuzzadem for correcting me.
