IAN HANCHETT

On Monday, CNN host Fredricka Whitfield apologized for referring to the gunmen who attacked as “courageous and brave.”

Whitfield said, “Well, Saturday, during a segment on the Dallas police department attack, I used the words ‘courageous and brave’ when discussing the gunman. I misspoke, terribly. I misused those words, terribly and I sincerely apologize for making this statement, and I understand now how offensive it was, and I want to reiterate that in no way do I believe the gunman was courageous or brave. I sincerely apologize.”
