Keith Olbermann Apologizes, Corrects Erroneous Story On Rupert Murdoch (VIDEO)

Keith Olbermann apologized and issued a correction over an erroneous transcript of a Rupert Murdoch quote from a recent News Corp earnings call.

Olbermann has enjoyed repeating Murdoch's claim that News Corp has "never been a company that tolerates facts."

"SeekingAlpha.com has yet to correct or apologize for its mistake, so we will," Olbermann said.

In the next breath, Olbermann awarded Bill O'Reilly the silver medal for Worst Person in the World, and stuck it to Murdoch over News Corp's stock price:

Incidentally, while Olbermann would apologize for his error, O'Reilly refused to apologize Wednesday night for likening Helen Thomas to the "wicked witch of the east." Watch that segment here.
