5287: Retractions And Redialing.
Bad calls in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• The Los Angeles Times apologized for running a story based on documents implying associates of Sean Combs were involved with the murder of Tupac Shakur. It appears the documents are bogus. “The bottom line is that the documents we relied on should not have been used,” wrote an L.A. Times editor. “We apologize both to our readers and to those referenced in the documents … and in the story.” Diddy’s pals probably want to kill the folks at the newspaper.
• Motorola announced plans to slice off its cell phone division to create two separate publicly traded companies. The announcement was probably made via text message to employees’ iPhones.
