O'Reilly Apoligizes (sort of) for Citing Article that Misquoted Murtha

On the June 29th The O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly apoligized for citing the Sun-Sentinel article that misquoted congressman John Murtha (D-PA)

O'REILLY: The South Florida Sun-Sentinel misquoted Congressman John Murtha in remarks about who is dangerous to the world. The newspaper has apologized, and since we picked up the paper's quote, we should apologize, as well.

We didn't -- we did, I should say, source the Sun-Sentinel, but I should have checked it out myself and called Murtha's office. Next time, we will do that.

The article, from June 25, alleged that Murtha said that "American presence in Iraq is more dangerous to world peace than nuclear threats from North Korea or Iran," when in fact Murtha was citing a poll.

The Sun-Sentinel corrected itself on June 28th, yet some conservative radio talk show hosts are still citing the article. On June 29th, Sean Hannity said during his show:

HANNITY: We've got the latest insanity from John Murtha. It's not Iran that's the greatest threat in the world, it's not Islamic fascists, it's not terrorism, it's not North Korea, it's not Iran. No, it's the United States. [laughs] I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
And today, two days after the correct, Rush Limbaugh had this to say during his radio show:
LIMBAUGH: Let's go back, though. I can remember being called a Clinton-hater. There was -- the media came up with a term to describe any critic of Clinton, and that was Clinton-hater. But we never called Clinton a terrorist. We never compared Bill Clinton to Adolf Hitler. We didn't suggest that the biggest threat, as Jack Murtha did the other day, to peace in the world is Bill Clinton.
