I just got in touch with Dan Balz, who wrote the Washington Post report that Fox News along with CNN would be running an ad from NARAL falsely accusing John Roberts of harboring sympathies for abortion-clinic bombers. As I mentioned in an update to the post below, FNC told me that NARAL “actually never approached us for a buy.” Balz confirmed that he got the bum information from NARAL and that the Post will run a correction, and good for them.
Now. Will CNN announce that it reported incorrectly that Fox News would also be running the ads? Or will it continue to pass on NARAL’s lies about its lying ad?
UPDATE: Here’s a link to the CNN transcript, just posted, in which Wolf Blitzer reports that NARAL said the ads would run on Fox News, without noting that the statement is incorrect.
