A remorseful Michael P. Meehan called today to apologize (see here for background).
He said: “I just want to say to you that I’m sorry. And I’d just like to apologize. I appreciate your calling me back. I don’t want to make a big federal case out of it.”
He continued: “I’m sorry, I didn’t know you were a reporter because you didn’t have any credentials, so I apologize for not knowing you were a reporter.”
I asked Meehan if he disputed anything that I wrote. “No,” he said.
I thanked Meehan for his apology.
