A statement from Carol Costello was sent to Breitbart News from CNN in which the morning anchor apologizes for telling viewers to “enjoy” audio of Bristol Palin reporting a physical assault to the police.
“Over the past few days I have been roundly criticized for joking about a brawl involving the Palin family,” Costello writes. “In retrospect, I deserve such criticism and would like to apologize.”
Breitbart News asked CNN if Costello will apologize on the air and will update if and when we hear back.
UPDATE: According to CNN, Costello will not apologize on the air. “No she will not,” was the official response to a query from Breitbart News.
