“This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across,” Costello said, sounding gleeful as she introduced audio of a distraught Bristol Palin describing being attacked. “Well, come across in a long time anyway.”
Costello told her viewers to, “Sit back and enjoy.”
On Thursday, Costello apologized for the way she had treated the incident…to Politico.
But as the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple pointed out Friday evening, Costello did not apologize on her own show, and in Wemple’s view, that’s much like when NBC executives apologized to other media outlets, but not on NBC itself, for editing audio from the George Zimmerman 911 call.
So, she told her viewers to "sit back and enjoy", apologised elsewhere but not on her own show. I voted below the article I just quoted she should apologise on her own show. I am shocked at only 3% voting decently, and I first hoped the majority of the rest thought her apology elsewhere was enough. Er ... no. That is not how decent the guys were who voted./HGL
