Daily Download Adds Another Apology To Jason Collins Fiasco

CNN‘s Howard Kurtz sat in the hot seat this morning for his “sloppy and inexcusable” coverage of out NBC player Jason Collins. This afternoon Daily Download founder and Editor-in-Chief Lauren Ashburn followed with her own retraction and apology for failing to check Kurtz’s inaccurate reporting before they filmed a controversial video in which Kurtz joked about Collison, and for yanking the video without acknowledging or correcting the error. “To Jason Collins, who courageously revealed details about his personal life, I am deeply sorry”, she wrote in a blog posting. “And, I also apologize to Daily Download readers who trust the information we provide”.
