ABC immediately apologized when the embarrassing gaffe was pointed out.

Did they, now?

Did they go on the air and admit what they did? Or did they pull a New York Times and issue a correction on the Page Z56 equivalent - After being called out on our broadcast, an internal investigation revealed the entire thing to be completely made up. We apologize for the error.

This is the same game Jake Tapper plays: goes out and say stupid/incorrect things on his show, then makes corrections on twitter after the damage is done. The NYT perfected the art of moving the needle, then fake apologizing for it later.
