A CNN anchor apologized Sunday after facing massive backlash for referring to a man who opened fire on a Dallas police station as "courageous and brave."
“It was very courageous and brave, if not crazy as well, to open fire on the police headquarters, and now you have this scene, this standoff,” Fredricka Whitfield said Saturday while speaking to legal analyst Philip Holloway.
Whitfield said on Sunday that she "misspoke."
“I misspoke, and in no way believe the gunman was courageous, nor brave,” she said.
