Apology


Yesterday, I posted a "John van Dongen Exclusive."

I'm told that Global TV did a similar thing recently and had to apologize as well.

The gist of the story is that I had learned that John van Dongen had a charge of running a red light pending against him.

Turns out there are two John van Dongens.

The man who is charged with running the red light is considerably older than the former Solicitor-General and collector of speeding tickets.

Top Cop has enough troubles without my adding needlessly to them.

I apologize and put myself in the penalty box for 23 hours for "piling on."

Your apology is a bit weak considering you still have your "exclusive" story posted. How about pulling it down.

In future, please avoid this type of ready, fire, aim journalism.

You must have confused this Site with Fox News.
They are on a different Site ............
