Did Ivy League newspaper apologize to Malia Obama for lying, or for telling the truth?

The Brown Daily Herald, the newspaper of Ivy League college Brown University, recently apologized to Malia Obama for reports that she had been drinking alcohol while visiting their campus. The newspaper wrote:

Editorial: Sorry, Malia Obama

Both articles feature several tweets from Brown students excited about Malia’s visit. Some of the tweets include photographs of her that were clearly taken when she was not looking. Many of them mention her presence at a party, where she was seen taking shots and playing beer pong.

The newspaper apologized.

But it did not issue a correction.

Did the newspaper apologize for lying, or for telling the truth?
