The explanation of the null result in the Michelson-Morley class of experiments appears very early and often in literature. Unfortunately, the explanations resort invariably to inertial frames in linear relative motion while the experiment was actually executed in a rotating frame. In the current paper we clarify several errors and misconceptions introduced by Selleri 10 and later by Klauber 8,9 on the subject of the application of rotating frames to the explanation of the null result of the experiments. We also clear the confusion introduced by Selleri and reprised by Klauber on the alleged anisotropy of light speed in a rotating frame.
