Pop Goes The News — Global News apologized late Monday for declaring that Jian Ghomeshi admitted to sexual assault.

The former CBC Radio host is on trial this week for four counts of sexual assault and one count of overcoming resistance by choking — all related to alleged incidents in 2002 and 2003.

This story has been updated to include comments from Global News.
