Newspaper Denies Carter's Remarks Were 'Misinterpreted'

ATLANTA (AP) -- Former President Carter says his controversial comments may have been misinterpreted, but the newspaper that printed them says they weren't.

Carter was quoted by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette as saying the Bush administration "has been the worst in history." Today, he told NBC's "Today" show that his words were perhaps "careless or misinterpreted."

But the Arkansas paper's deputy editor counters that the story was accurate, adding that Carter's remarks weren't "misinterpreted by us." The newspaper's Web site now features the audio of the interview.

After the paper's story appeared, a Carter spokeswoman confirmed his comments.

A deputy White House press secretary says it all highlights the importance of carefully choosing one's words. He chose to leave it at that.
