Memo to certain bloggers

Libel is not "free speech."

The National Post has taken down the item--out of embarrassment?

Here is the full text:

On November 10th, the National Post posted on its Full Comment Web blog a column entitled “Ezra Levant: Canada’s free speech enemies to lay Remembrance Day wreath,” which included a link to another Web site that
suggested lawyer and human rights activist Richard Warman had posted an
offensive item on the Freedomsite website about Senator Anne Cools.
The National Post has no evidence to support this allegation against
Mr. Warman and it hereby retracts any suggestion that Mr. Warman
manufactured any statement about Senator Cools. The National Post
apologizes for any embarrassment this has caused Mr. Warman.
