This from the National Post today:

Brian Mulroney
National Post
Published: Thursday, March 01, 2007
In the column "Don't Ignore this Scandal" by Warren Kinsella (Feb. 1), some of the testimony of former prime minister Brian Mulroney in his libel action against the government of Canada in 1996 was quoted. The column did not set the full context of a quote from the transcript where Mr. Mulroney said he had not had any dealings with Karlheinz Schreiber. The column did not report that Mr. Mulroney was answering a question about the purchase by the federal government of the Airbus product and stated that he had no dealings with Mr. Schreiber in that context. Elsewhere in the examination, Mr. Mulroney testified about conversations and meetings he had with Schreiber after Mr. Mulroney was out of the prime minister's office. The National Post sincerely regrets any false impression it created about the testimony of Mr. Mulroney and apologizes to him for any embarrassment or concern it has caused.

This from Kinsella's masturbatory blog yesterday:

February 2007
February 28, 2007 - I am told there will be a statement about a certain former Prime Minister in the paper tomorrow, in relation to this. The statement, I am told, expresses regret for any false impression that MAY have been created, but does not necessarily say that a false impression WAS created. On such heads do lawyers, and angels, dance.

Unless you are a former employee of said Prime Minister, you will note that the fellow named Warren Kinsella is not expressing regret to anyone about any of this. Full stop.

Where's The Fifth Estate when you need 'em, eh?

Let the lawyers feast.

It will go on the Kinsella archives page eventually.
I am under no moral or ethical, let alone legal, obligation to leave Kinsella "free", especially when he continues to deliberately libel me on his site after being served with a libel notice. Yes, Kinsella is a bore and a fool, but if I see something humorous or interesting, I'll post it. It's my blog. I'll post cookie recipes if I want to.
