Le Monde Apologizes

"Le Monde...made a mistake. We owe an apology to the first-generation Africans in the inner city. They were wrongfully stigmatized. We also owe an apology to our readers who can, with good reason, reproach us for not having been skeptical enough."

"Le Monde...a commis une faute. Nous en devons excuses aux jeunes des cités issus de l'immigration maghrébine ou africaine, stigmatisés à tort. Nous en devons aussi excuses à nos lecteurs qui peuvent à bon droit nous reprocher de ne pas avoir suffisamment fait place au doute."

--Le Monde's mea culpa, following its reporting of the fabricated, anti-Semitic attack on a Paris subway.
