    MSNBC host Joy Reid apologized for blog posts she wrote from 2007 to 2009 that used language criticized as homophobic to mock former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist. “This note is my apology to all who are disappointed by the content of blogs I wrote a decade ago, for which my choice of words and tone have legitimately been criticized. As a writer, I pride myself on a facility with language — an economy of words or at least some wisdom in the selection,” Reid said in a statement provided to TheWrap. “However, that clearly has not always been the case.”...

    A day after being fired by NBC, former “Today” host Matt Lauer on Thursday broke his silence on the mounting sexual misconduct allegations against him — saying some of the accusations are “untrue” but that he is “truly sorry” for the pain he has inflicted. “There are no words to express my sorrow and regret for the pain I have caused others by words and actions,” he said in a statement. “To the people I have hurt, I am truly sorry. “As I am writing this I realize the depth of the damage and disappointment I have left behind at...

    MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt seemed happy that Republican Kentucky senator Rand Paul suffered six broken ribs and a buildup of excess fluid in his lungs when he was attacked earlier this month, before quickly apologizing for her on-air statement. “New details today on the incident that left Senator Rand Paul with six broken ribs – this might be one of my favorite stories,” the liberal reporter said last week. The MSNBC host quickly seemed to realize she was condoning violence and started to downplay her comments but appeared to lose her train of thought midsentence, saying, “Although, of course, we don’t…...

    The Latvian conductor Mariss Jansons, of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra has quickly retracted a remark made to a Telegraph interviewer in which he said that women conductors ‘are not my cup of tea’. In a statement on Friday he said: ‘I come from a generation in which the conducting profession was almost exclusively reserved to men. Even today, many more men than women pursue conducting professionally. ‘But it was undiplomatic, unnecessary and counterproductive for me to point out that I’m not yet accustomed to seeing women on the conducting platform. ‘Every one of my female colleagues and every young...

The Louisville, Kentucky-based company is a major NFL sponsor and advertiser, and Schnatter said on an earnings call on Nov. 1 that "NFL leadership has hurt Papa John's shareholders" and that the protests "should have been nipped in the bud a year and a half ago." The company tweeted a statement offering to "work with the players and league to find a positive way forward."

    UCLA and Georgia Tech finally played their season-opening college basketball game in China after nearly a week of drama surrounding an alleged shoplifting incident involving three Bruins players. UCLA great Bill Walton, who was doing color commentary for the ESPN broadcast, wants everyone to know that the school and everyone associated with it is very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very sorry for all of this. Very. “I am sad, disappointed and embarrassed. This is a very big deal,” Walton said as the game tipped off late Friday night on the U.S. East Coast. “The noble purpose...

    Leonard itemized ten different themes of Trump in this speech. To my ears, it’s extremely easy to see the winning formula they represent, for they clearly set down lines of demarcation that have strong appeal in a primarily center-right nation: 1) We’re sustained by the power of prayer versus Democrats who want prayer out of the public sphere. 2) Mass murder event caused by an act of pure evil versus Democrats who blame guns and want to take them away. 3) Honoring first responders versus elevating thugs and viewing our protectors in blue with disdain. 4) Quoting scripture versus Democrats...

    Agreement specifically blames Lois Lerner by name for failures The IRS admitted in court Wednesday that it wrongly targeted tea party and other conservative groups for intrusive scrutiny, placing specific blame on former senior executive Lois G. Lerner, and entered into a settlement designed to make sure that kind of political targeting never takes place again. The filing, made in federal court in Washington, D.C., amounts to a stunning apology from the Trump administration for actions taken under President Barack Obama, when hundreds of tea party and conservative groups were singled out for intrusive screening, forced to wait years for...

    Full original title--White female cop takes stand on anti-American NFL ‘ingrates.’ It nets her punishment nobody saw coming Last month, Michigan State Police director Colonel Kriste Kibbey Etue shared a Facebook post displaying the sentiments of literally the majority of America, but one that has gotten her into hot water with liberals in the peanut gallery. The September 24 post, which has since been removed, decries NFL players ‘taking-a-knee’ during the national anthem as “millionaire ingrates who hate America.” Etue was forced to “apologize” for the post three days later. “It was a mistake to share this message on Facebook...

    From Alejandro Villanueva's absurd apology for standing up for the flag, to his team's decision to stay off the field during the playing of the national anthem, the Pittsburgh Steelers have done an amazing job of extending a bad press cycle for themselves. And maybe that's because they are prioritizing protection of their flag-haters over the interest of pleasing their fans. First, there was the locker-room evasion. In the name of 'team unity' and a stated desire not to get involved in the politically charged atmosphere of President Trump's objections to players 'taking a knee' as the national anthem...

    The article written by Phillip Giraldi alleges “Jewish groups and deep pocket individual donors not only control the politicians, they own and run the media and entertainment industries”, and takes aim at several high-profile public figures, including Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and political adviser. Giraldi later urges “the media” to label any on-air guests “at the bottom of the television screen whenever they pop up, e.g. Bill Kristol is ‘Jewish and an outspoken supporter of the state of Israel.'” After her initial tweet went viral, Plame later told her followers “calm down” and asked them to “put aside...

    One of the Best Buy stores in Houston offered Hurricane Harvey victims bottled water ... for a price, a very high one and now the company's apologizing. The store was caught selling 12-packs of Smartwater for $29.98 and 24-packs of Dasani for a whopping $42.96.

Best Buy now admits, "This was a big mistake on the part of a few employees at one store on Friday. As a company we are focused on helping, not hurting affected people. We’re sorry...

    Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal must have found out the hard way that the Secret Service don't play and she went from she won't apologize to a very public apology in just a few short days... sort of. She told us we all make mistakes. Not like hers, but we do. She also told us that we're not to judge her. So much for humility and contrition.
