Writing in the USA Today, Clooney said: "I thank the Mail for its apology. Not that I would ever accept it, but because in doing so they've exposed themselves as the worst kind of tabloid.
"One that makes up its facts to the detriment of its readers and to all the publications that blindly reprint them."
