The National Enquirer Retracts Philip Seymour Hoffman Gay Lover Report and Issues an Apology

The National Enquirer claims they were duped into reporting that Philip Seymour Hoffman had been involved in a gay relationship with playwright David Bar Katz.
Well I guess Hell froze over!
The National Enquirer not only admitted they were wrong — they admitted they were duped and they issued an apology. After playwright Philip Seymour Hoffman filed a $50 million lawsuit against the tabloid that claimed he was Philip Seymour Hoffman’s gay lover, the supermarket rag realized they were wrong.
They issued an apology on their website and on their sister website, RadarOnline.
Here it is in it’s entirety — get a good look — because it is very, very rare for the Enquirer to admit they are wrong!
“The National Enquirer recently published a front page headline and accompanying article about the death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. The cover headline and article were premised on an interview with a source who we have now concluded misled us as to his identity. This resulted in us making statements on the cover and in the article that we now believe to be untrue and that we deeply regret. We therefore extend our sincere regret and apologies to Mr. Hoffman’s family and to David Bar Katz and his family. The National Enquirer takes pride in providing our loyal readers with timely and accurate news. In this instance, we wish simply to say that we were wrong. A veteran Enquirer reporter spoke at length with someone who identified himself as David Katz, and he had reason to believe he was indeed speaking with Mr. Katz. The cover headline and much of the article were based on that interview. The Enquirer article was later picked up by Radar Online. We now know that David Bar Katz denies speaking with our reporter, and we believe we were tricked. The National Enquirer has a long and deserved reputation for pursuing stories aggressively and fearlessly, but in this instance, we acknowledge we made a mistake. We were duped into believing the source of this information. Again, we wish to express our deepest and most heartfelt apologies to the family of Mr. Hoffman and to Mr. Katz and his family, as well as Enquirer readers. We are truly sorry.”

That's a good thing, say what you want about the enquirer but they have been on the money with scandals in the past. its a good look for the enquirer too cause like the article state they usually never offer retraction. as for Mr playwright David, yo ass sure dodge some fucked up energy coming you way lol by the looks of it, it would not take much to spiritually tap that ass.
