CNN apologizes to Assange after commentator calls him ‘pedophile' - NY Daily News

CNN apologizes to Assange after commentator calls him ‘pedophile' - NY Daily News: CNN issued an apology after one of its paid commentators called WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange "a pedophile" during a live broadcast Wednesday morning.

Phil Mudd, a counterterrorism analyst for the network, slipped out the incorrect accusation while discussing Assange's controversial anti-secrecy site on the network's "New Day" show.

"I think there's an effort to protect WikiLeaks (and) a pedophile who lives in the Ecuadorian embassy in London — this guy is not credible," Mudd said, referring to Assange.
