Glenn Reynolds, offering advice to the guy that ABC News slimed today:
If I were the Tea Party Holmes, I’d have my lawyer talking to ABC right now. My terms: Groveling apology to be repeated on at least two national newscasts, plus This Week and all Colorado affiliates. Plus $250K in damages. No apology by tonight, and the demand goes to $5 million. Oh, and guys, be sure to preserve all records, browser histories, etc. for litigation. . . .
Don’t let them get away with We’re sorry if anyone was upset, either. No, the proper apology is We’re sorry because we did something wrong.
