Fredricka Whitfield’s mea culpa: “I misspoke”

During the first hour of Fredricka Whitfield’s block of CNN Newsroom, she issued an apology for what she said yesterday on her program, where she called the man in Dallas who opened fire on a police HQ “courageous and brave.”

“Yesterday, during a segment on the Dallas police department attack, I used the words courageous and brave when discussing the gunman. I misspoke, and in no way believe the gunman was courageous, nor brave.”

  1. Extremely poor usage of words yesterday. However, she doesn’t have a history of being either openly partisan or inflammatory and I give her the benefit of the doubt that it was just a misstatement.

  2. Fredricka is very pleasant to watch. Not overtly opinionated or obnoxious. I’ve always liked her, but cringed when I watched that yesterday. But like the user above me posted, she does not have a history of this unlike other reporters *cough Don Lemon *cough. So I say give her a break…
