I just read about another apology (on TVNewser.com) and thought, we need an apology network. The possibilities are endless! I am not saying we don’t need apologies – and more – but rather that we sure have a lot of them. I even got my turn last week in an OFF THE RECORD commentary where I said I regretted not covering the VA scandal going back years (2006?)
Just think about all the apologies in just the last few weeks – Gatorade apologized for tweets about Lebron James, Cliven Bundy, Donald Sterling, Justin Bieber, White House apologized to Senator Dianne Feinstein for not giving her the heads up about Bergdahl, NRA apologized in Texas, GM apologizes for sending notices to victims’ families etc..
In addition to running the apologies and talking about them, you could add a few audience shows like American Idol – best and worst apologies. Or a game show: who said this in an apology this week?
And then of course the show that we would all want: apologies we want to hear. :)
[I do hope you know I am kidding]
