George Clooney Unsatisfied By Daily Mail Apology

George Clooney, still angry over a Daily Mail story that alleged the mother of his fiancee opposes his forthcoming marriage to her daughter, has now responded to the tabloid's printed apology, saying that the apology is no apology at all. The original story suggested that his future mother-in-law did not like the idea of the proposed marriage for religious reasons. Mr. Clooney objected that such an insinuation was both false and dangerous, because it is the sort of story that tends to incite violence. The paper offered an apology, which has not satisfied Mr. Clooney.
