MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan apologized this morning for photos that he used last week during what was intended to be a lighthearted segment about Gov. Sarah Palin.
On Friday, we noted that Ratigan aired doctored photos on “Morning Meeting” of Palin without identifying them as fakes.
Today, the host apologized saying:
I want to apologize to Gov. Palin and all our viewers. On Friday, in a very misguided attempt to have some fun in advance of Palin’s upcoming book, Going Rogue, our staff mistakenly used some clearly photoshopped images of Ms. Palin without any acknowledgment, and on behalf of the show I would like to say that this was completely unacceptable. We should have never used those photos in the first place
