VIDEO: CNN Anchor Slammed for "Weak" Apology After Calling Dallas Gunman "Brave"

Sunday CNN weekend anchor Fredricka Whitfield apologized for what she said Saturday concerning the attack on Dallas Police Department headquarters.

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

But that apology isn’t sitting well with the Dallas Police Association, which issued a statement Monday morning that says it wasn’t much of an apology at all, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Well I guess by CNN standards Adolf Hitler was the bravest person to ever live, wait maybe it was Stalin, no Lenin. Darn I can't decide.

I thot all anchors read from the teleprompter. Hatchet the scriptwriter.

CNN is a joke and Fredericka is anti police. Seen her other remarks and facial expressions when the blk ghetto race and police issue comes up.

Seriously, I wouldn't ask for an apology, who really cares. It's just another idiot liberal talking out of the wrong end. EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT THOSE OFFICERS WERE THE HEROIC, AND BRAVE ONES!!

I have an idea that she reports what she is told or she is told to take a walk. But CNN has always been a fan of Sharpton.
