Clooney rejects the apology from Daily Mail for printing a false statement about the actor and his future mother-in-law’s religious differences. Clooney says that the publication knew what they were printing was untrue and printed it anyway:
What separates this from all of the ridiculous things the Mail makes up is that now, by their own admission, it can be proved to be a lie. In fact, a premeditated lie. So I thank the Mail for its apology. Not that I would ever accept it, but because in doing so they’ve exposed themselves as the worst kind of tabloid.
