UK paper apologizes for assassination remark Guardian writer appeared to call for killing of President Bush
The Associated Press

LONDON - A British newspaper apologized Monday for a weekend article in which a writer appeared to call for the assassination of President Bush.

In a regular column in The Guardian newspaper’s Saturday TV listings magazine, Charlie Brooker described Bush in scathing terms, and concluded: “John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, John Hinckley Jr., where are you now that we need you?”

'Flippant and tasteless'
The Guardian’s apology described Brooker’s comments as “flippant and tasteless” but said they were “intended as an ironic joke, not as a call to action — an intention he believed regular readers of his humorous column would understand.”
