Rob Ford Apologizes to Reporter Again: ‘I Wholly Retract My Statements’

The Toronto Star’s Daniel Dale will not pursue a libel lawsuit against Toronto’s mayor, Rob Ford, the Star reported Wednesday, after Ford issued “a second, more complete, public apology.” Ford had implied Dale was a pedophile; Dale rejected an earlier apology in which Ford blamed the media for ascribing to him a “word I did not say.”

The new apology, by contrast, includes pretty much full retractions of everything Ford has said about Dale so far, and words he implied.
