RETRACTION--Hawaii newspaper retracts Churchill admittance

This is today's latest twist in this roller-coaster story (and folks, this guy will hang himself with his own rope, it's only a matter of letting him speak for himself--there is no need to make junk up and thereby sink to his level of "scholarship"):

Hawaiian newspaper misquotes Churchill
CU prof did not back away from Indian heritage claim
By Charlie Brennan, Rocky Mountain NewsFebruary 24, 2005

A dispute that erupted Wednesday over a published report that CU professor Ward Churchill was backing off his claims to Indian heritage ended when a Honolulu newspaper admitted it had misquoted him.

Ed Lynch, the city editor at the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, said, "Unfortunately, our reporter made a mistake." He said the newspaper would run a retraction today.

The paper published a report Wednesday that said Churchill addressed the issue of his ethnicity in a talk Tuesday at the University of Hawaii at Manoa and admitted that he is not an American Indian.

In Wednesday's editions the Star-Bulletin quoted Churchill as asking, "Is he an Indian? Do we really care?" in referring to himself, according to the newspaper. "Let's cut to the chase. I am not."

But Wednesday night, Lynch said a review of a tape of the speech revealed that what Churchill said was, "Let's cut to the chase on that."

Churchill went on to say his pedigree is "not important" and that "the issue is the substance of what is said," the paper reported.

Churchill's true ethnicity has been a topic of public debate, as has his scholarship and his political beliefs, since late January, when a planned panel appearance by Churchill at Hamilton College in Clinton, N.Y., drew protests because of his controversial essay on the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Some People Push Back: On the Justice of Roosting Chickens.

Churchill's next public appearance is set for Tuesday at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. He'll be speaking during Native Pride Week on the subject of "Racism Against the American Indian."
