Thats an apology?

Reader comment on item: More Ties between Islamists and Neo-Nazis

Did Nusrat Hussain get around to calling Mr Steele's assertions rabid fascism and absolutely false. Why do we allow these people to spout irrational filth in the hope that each time they do a few more will believe it, and then let them wipe the slate clean with calm rational apologies that dont actually address the crime. PEOPLE WERE OFFENDED BY THE LIE, APOLOGISING FOR BEING OFFENDED LEAVES THE LIE 90% INTACT.

We should always demand explicit apology for the lie and opportunity for a rational response clearly endorsed by the offending publication. That is the least that should be expected, if the publication cant at least do that then it exposes itself as a stealth advocate of the offending lies.
