If Pat Robertson publicly retracted his gay ring remarks, could he have the YouTube video removed?
In case you missed the story, here it is. I tried to find a more objectively presented story, but could not find anything. Although I agree that what Robertson said is hateful and absurd, that is not what I want to discuss. What I want to know is this. In the unlikely event that Robertson publicly apologized for and retracted his statement, could he then have the YouTube video removed? In general, if a public figure retracts a statement, can he then force that statement from being published, unless the retraction is included?
