UPDATED: ABC News concocts RFK Jr.-Obama controversy

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Kennedy states the obvious today when he tells ABC News that he never called Obama an "indentured servant" to the coal industry.

Josh Nelson first pointed out ABC's dreadful work by Brian Ross ("RFK Jr. Blasts Obama as 'Indentured Servant' to Coal Industry"), and we amplified the fact that Kennedy never said that about Obama. Now ABC walks it back with a follow-up item:

RFK Jr. Says He Did Not Call Obama 'Indentured Servant' to Coal: Environmental Leader Says He Was Referring to "Other" Politicians, Not the President

In the old days, that's what's called a correction.
