Mirror Apologises to Michael Spencer Over Smear

The Mirror was the only newspaper with a hack who was in on the McBride / Draper emails (Kevin Maguire).  Today it has had to apologise to Tory treasurer Michael Spencer over claims made last week that he and his firm profiteered out of the 9/11 terror attack.
