TV Guide Canada has apologized for misquoting Modern Family's Ed O'Neill in a story in which he talked about Glee star Jane Lynch's Emmy win.
Here is TV Guide Canada's retraction in full:
Earlier this week, TV Guide Canada published a story misquoting Ed O’Neill's recent comments about Jane Lynch's Emmy win. Our writer did not mean to misrepresent Mr. O'Neill or anyone else involved in the story. He and TV Guide Canada sincerely apologize for this error.
Mr. O'Neill's real quote is as follows:
"I'm one of Jane Lynch's biggest fans. I love Jane Lynch. She is a genius. But at the same time I said 'Sofia could win' because ... and I've only seen Glee a couple of ... I've only seen Glee once. But I thought Jane’s role is rather one-dimensional. It's kind of strident. It's always kind of the same. I've seen her be much better. So I thought 'Sofia's funnier,' and I think she is in these two comparative roles. Anyway, Jane won. But I was hoping that Sofia would."
