    Re: Meaning Of: For The Record

    There you go my good friend, from NTC's American Idiom Dictionary:

    "for the record":
    so that (one’s own version of ) the facts will be known; so there will be a record of a particular fact. (This often is said when there are reporters present.)

    And some examples:

    I’d like to say—for the record—that at no time have I ever accepted a bribe from anyone. 

    For the record, I’ve never been able to get anything done around city
    hall without bribing someone.
