Skip to comments.An apology to Sarah Palin (You're not going to believe this . . .)
Posted on 09/24/2009 8:06:16 AM PDT by rightwingintelligentsia
The Daily News-Miner has had its agreements and disagreements with now-former Gov. Sarah Palin at various points during her time serving the state of Alaska. We have tried to maintain respect for the office of governor and to be generally civil when discussing Mrs. Palin, her policies and the actions she took while serving as governor. The same has been true for the time since she left office.
Today I must apologize to Mrs. Palin personally and on behalf of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner for the choice of words used on the bottom of Wednesdays front page regarding her speaking engagement in Hong Kong this week to a group of global investors.
We used offensive language A broad in Asia above a small photograph of the former governor to direct readers inside the newspaper to a full story of her Hong Kong appearance.
There can be no argument that our use of the word broad is anything but offensive. To use this word to describe someone of the stature of the former governor who is also the former vice presidential nominee of the Republican Party only adds to the anger that many people appropriately feel.

It’s more appropriate for Hillary! in any event...
Apparently the Editor heard from Sarah’s attorney.
It’s nice to actually see a real apology. One with acceptance of the wrongful act and contrition instead of the “if anyone was offended...” crap.
Screw the apology. I want him to explain how it got in there.
I don’t believe this.
Eff you, you miserable leftist robot. I hope your paper goes bankrupt.
my guess is that they got a lot of FEEDBACK, all negative..
Words like that wouldn’t offend me if I were the super hotness like SP. This coming from a newspaper struggling to print tomorrow’s edition.
What kind of fool would call a chick a “broad?”
It’s a rather dated term.
Not so easy to defame someone when they’re a private citizen, ha ha ha.
Oops, the paper got caught with their subscriptions down.
The fact it was published in the first place, and that they would NEVER do that to Pelosi, says far more about the journalistic integrity of this rag than any apology can cover.
I suspect it was supposed to be “Abroad” not “A broad”. But it’s good they apologized.
Anyway, it’s a rather good apology.
They are not sorry, they just have a second bite at the insult with a fake appology.
