Harris-Perry’s apology, take two: Host breaks down in tears on air

[sharenow]

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry is clearly feeling the heat from a panel on last week’s show that mocked Mitt Romney’s adopted black grandson, and took to the air Saturday to issue yet another apology.

After an apology on Twitter earlier in the week that was criticized for being a “celebrity apology,” complete with its own hashtag, an emotional Harris-Perry broached the subject again on Saturday’s show.

She repeated her previous apology before adding that “adults who enter into public life implicitly consent to having less privacy, but their families, especially their children, should not be treated callously or thoughtlessly.”

“My intention was not malicious, but I broke the ground rule that families are off-limits,” she continued. “For that, I am sorry.”

With her voice cracking, Harris-Perry then said: “Allow me to apologize to other families formed through transracial adoption, because I am deeply sorry that we suggested that interracial families are in any way funny, or deserving of ridicule. On this program, we are dedicated to advocating for a wide diversity of families, it is one of our core principles. And I am reminded that when we do so, it must be with the utmost respect.”

Coming on the heels of Martin Bashir being forced out at MSNBC for making vile comments about Sarah Palin, is it possible that we are beginning to see some semblance of reasonable standards from the pro-Obama network?
