@tyndalehouse’s “nuanced” “mistake” about Janet Mefferd’s apology

In the press release regarding Mark Driscoll’s “mistakes,” Tyndale says:

In the days following the interview, the talk show host posted on her blog further allegations of plagiarism against Pastor Driscoll, complete with screenshots of other books where she alleged he had committed plagiarism. She later removed all of those posts and issued a public apology.

Um, that’s a lie/half-truth/oh-bless-their-heart…

This was posted a few minutes ago by Ms. Mefferd. She, unlike Tyndale, is telling the truth. She originally said:

I should have contacted Tyndale House directly to alert them to the plagiarism issue.

She has yet to withdraw her charges of plagarism. Further, it appears Jones has had his say as well:

Tyndale can speak in nuances but this appears to be a trick right out of Driscoll’s play book.
