Scott McClellan lied about Fox News talking points

Former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan recently pandered to überlefty Keith Olbermann, claiming that Fox News parroted talking points sent to them by the White House …

… but retracted his claim when confronted by Bill O’Reilly:

Just listen to this guy frantically try to avoid admitting his falsehoods. He’s not a very good spin doctor, and O’Reilly flat out pins McClellan’s hide to the wall, vaporizing the last shreds of credibility this flack still had.

    He never retracted the statements about Fox news. He apologised to O’Reilly for allowing the misconception that O’Reilly had a hand in it, and denied that O’Reilly took any part in the talking points.
    He did not, however, retract the statement the Fox news commentators did get talking points.
