Miami Herald definitely should be held accountable for running with a false story. They owe Nate a retraction and and apology at the minimum and a lawsuit would get them to that point.

since he's a public figure, he has to be able to demonstrate actual financial loss in order to get paid.
threatening a lawsuit is probably enough to get an apology and 'mea culpa' on page six of the sports section.
