My friend Angela Gunn points out Keith Olberman’s public apology to pretty much anyone he’s ever worked for and with.
It’s an impressive list, and an impressive piece. Olberman, best known for anchoring ESPN’s SportsCenter, is ex-UPI, ex-ESPN, ex-NBC, and not-yet-ex ABC. Along the way, he gained the reputation of being the new Howard Cosell — a man whose intellect and talent encompasses far more than sports but who drives everyone who knows him more than a little nuts.
This is not an apologia; it’s a genuine and specific act of public repentance. Well worth reading.
