DAMAGE CONTROL

Mika Brzezinski Apologizes For Halperin Victims Comment

Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski apologized on Friday night after a widely-criticized segment on the program aired earlier in the day in which she chastised the women who accused journalist Mark Halperin of sexual misconduct for not wanting to meet and hear him apologize. "In our discussion about sexual harassment this morning, I said some things that hurt people," Brzezinski wrote. "In the case of Mark, my goal today was to start a conversation about hearing from the men whenever we can, but I realize that it is not my place. It isn't my call to make, and for that I am truly sorry."
