Mary Hart Might Need to Issue a Retraction About Her Statement on Retractions
Here's one Entertainment Tonight lie we could find

Never say never, Mary.

Entertainment Tonight host Mary Hart joins exec producer Linda Bell Blue in standing by the show's story about Angelina Jolie giving birth, telling the LA Daily News (via women-hater Liz Snead) on Saturday at a Cedars-Sinai Heart Foundation event: "No one has seen Angelina in the last two weeks. I hope that the babies were born when we said they were and that we had our facts straight. I have never retracted a story in 26 years, but all I can do now is wait and see."

Oh really, Mary? Never. had. to. retract. a. story. in. 26. years?

From a 2001 interview on Larry King Live:

CALLER: I wonder, have you publicized a major story, that later proved to contain inaccurate information?

KING: Good question. Did you ever break a story that wasn't?

HART: Do you know what, I don't know that a major story. I can't think of a major story that we have broken, that was incorrect. But we have had to correct some things that were false, that were not major points, but yes we have had to retract things.

Not that we're splitting hairs – between "major story" and "things" – or anything.

    Big difference in a story and just having to change the time from 1:00 pm to 1:30 pm , let's not get silly here. This is a big story. All Jolie has to do to end this is show herself. Simple as that. It is very easy to track a email and who it belongs to. This is a no brainer. Jolie likes this attention, it is driving up the interest in the babies, but honestly, who cares really? Once you get past girl or boy and then names, the interest is pretty much over. She and Pitt are making fools out of themselves acting like highschool kids.

    Mary Hart is not only a liar but a total insentive Bitch, she would rather have the babies born prematurely just so to save her ass, and couldnt care less about the health of the babies or even Angelina!

    Why are they so ashamed to do a retraction, when everyone knows already that they know that they only stupidly got the news from a fly by night blogger.

    What an idiot! Why would Jolie show herself just to prove that they are wrong, in the first place she did not cause ET's blunder much less the confusion??

    Angelina is smart enough not to fall to their trap, she doesnt have to do anything, its her babies, she can do whatever, they are not accountable to the media or whoever,and they dont need to respond to the irresponsible media, as long as it doesnt harm them. And this issue doesnt harm them, only ET made a fool of themselves, thats for sure!

    On the LA Times blog, Hart said SHE never had to issue a retraction. I still think the Jolie camp lied to ET. ET is sitting on it b/c they have a good chance at a lawsuit due to all the money involved with that breeding machine.
    Oh-Brad is outta there.

    GMAFB. Everyone knows that ET took the story that was passed to a French source via a random blog that appeared on May 26th. ET doesn't want to admit that their staffers and a producer actually did that. Everyone knows exactly what they did. JP's attorneys had already notified the media that the story was false and to retract it. Did you see Access Hollywood, Extra, Inside Edition, E News or The Daily 10 run with it? No. Because they were informed ahead of time it's false. After the whole Anna Nicole Smith debacle this just cements how low ET has fallen. And Elizabeth Snead just needs to STFU already.

    Annie it is never a wise action to take to parade your stupidity for all to read. ET and Mary Hart lied and refuses to do the right thing and say that they did. All the other entertainment shows received the same info at the same time that ET did from the lawyers and none of the others ran the lie from an obscure blog that has since disappeared. ET alone lied. Brad and Angie will announce the birth of THEIR babies when they are born just as they did when Shiloh was born. Brad will be where ever Angie and their kids are, the man totally loves his family.

    Jossip, how did you become more responsible than the so called media. This is absolutely hilarious what the media has become. As for the hens b*tching about Angelina having to show herself, who the hell are you to make such demands? Who told your mother to show her face in order to prove some gossip hack has not lied to the public.

    You wish Brad will be out of there, I guess you missed the man saying over a 15 year period that he wanted 7 children, no in your world a woman who has had two pregnancies is now a breeding machine. You stupid trolls are so colored by bitterness that you expose your stupidity all over the net and meanwhile Jolie has put her feet up with Pitt rubbing it and loving her. Find a life that you can enjoy or else you will die a bitter prune over some else's life.

    ET, messed up, and to borrow from Star Jones, it is a shame that Mary Hart in the sunset of her gossip career will resort to lies and innuendos against a woman heavily pregnant with twins just to get ratings, the world has certainly gone to hell.

    Mattie, I wanted to add that I did not attack you or anyone else whose opinions are different from mine. Give others the same courtesy. All we are doing is posting our thoughts on people we do not know, who will never know us, and only care about us as far as they can make money.

    Angelina Jolie don't have to do a darn thing to prove anything, unless she is pressing any kind of charges. I'm sure she will have her babies when she (and they) are good and ready. Honestly I don't think she gives a flying toot for ET.

    Honestly the only people this information concern is Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and their family. As for ET.. it's not like it's big news that they come out with half-asses truths or made of gossip - just to get attention.. It's like any other gossip rag - they DON'T care about the persons they "hunt" for stories.. as long as they can make money of them.

    Stop watching ET - buying the gossip magazines and maybe all the hoohah about celebrities will die down, and THEY too can have a life of some sort without have an idiot climbing their fences or trees to take pictures. Whatcha think?

    I don't know about anyone else, but I've noticed the wardrobe of Mary Hart of ET. Some days she dresses like my mother did in the 50's. Thought her 'stylist' should revamp the closet!!!

    She looks fine on the red carpet of the Oscars or the Golden Globes but on the ET, some are near misses!
