    As you have likely heard already, North Korea fired off two more short-range missiles into the ocean over the past week or so. This comes just as the United States moves forward with previously planned military exercises with South Korea, no doubt annoying dictator Kim Jong-un. The missile launches have no doubt put some strain on the “special relationship” that President Trump has been attempting to foster with North Korea’s tyrant, but yesterday he announced that he had received a “beautiful” three page letter from Kim, including a “small apology” for the missile tests and assurances that they would...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday again called on former Vice President Joe Biden to apologize for touting his relationships with segregationists, saying Bidens former colleagues participated in a disgusting system. It is one thing to work with people you have fundamental disagreements with, its another to kind of extol those relationships, Sanders said on CBS Face the Nation Sunday. You cannot be extolling people who really were part of a disgusting system. I think Joe owes the country an apology on that, Sanders said, adding Do I think Joe Biden is a racist? Absolutely not. Biden sparked controversy last...

    The American Psychoanalytic Association apologized on Friday for previously labeling homosexuality a mental illness. It is long past time to recognize and apologize for our role in the discrimination and trauma caused by our profession, Lee Jaffe, the groups president, said in a statement. We all know that hearing the words we are sorry is important to healing past trauma.

    Time Magazine columnist Ian Bremmer apologized Monday for fabricating a quote from President Donald Trump about North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un that went viral the day before. My tweet yesterday about Trump preferring Kim Jong Un to Biden as President was meant in jest, Bremmer tweeted Monday. The President correctly quoted me as saying it was a completely ludicrous statement. I should have been clearer. My apologies. Bremmers apology comes after he tweeted a quote attributed to the president alleging he said, Kim Jong Un is smarter and would make a better President than Sleepy Joe Biden. Many people...

    Ian Bremmer is a political scientist who teaches at New York University. He also apparently works at Time magazine and appears on television occasionally as an expert in foreign affairs. Sunday he created quite a firestorm when he tweeted out a fake quote attributed to President Trump. For a while, Bremmer doubled-down and refused to delete the tweet or apologize, even after other blue-checked progressives began sharing it widely. Today, Bremmer finally apologized: My tweet yesterday about Trump preferring Kim Jong Un to Biden as President was meant in jest. The President correctly quoted me as saying it was...

    Rudy Giuliani stoked concerns about his well-being Friday morning with a tweet containing a backhanded apology to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for circulating a fake video ofher appearing incoherent during public events. 'ivesssapology for a video which is allegedly is a caricature of an otherwise halting speech pattern,' tweeted Giuliani, one of President Donald Trump's personal lawyers. '[S]he should first stop, and apologize for, saying the President needs an intervention.

    History becomes myth, myths become legends, and legends become unquestionable. And if a biased media is writing the story, even dubious tales can turn into unassailable fact with the right combination of narrative and time. This has been the case with Anita Hill.Hills testimony alleging that Clarence Thomas, then a nominee for the Supreme Court, repeatedly harassed her in the workplace made for explosive politics back in 1991. Its reemerging as an issue in 2019 thanks to the new presidential candidacy of Joe Biden. As senator, Biden chaired the Judiciary Committee, and in the eyes of the Democratic voters...

    Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg said Thursday that he was unaware when he said "all lives matter" in 2015 that the phrase was being used to undercut the Black Lives Matter movement. Buttigieg spoke about his past comment after a speech at the National Action Network, a politically powerful organization founded by Rev. Al Sharpton. The phrase "all lives matter" has been used by critics of the Black Lives Matter movement to push back on the view that closer attention needs to be paid to the deaths of African American men and women at the hand of law enforcement.

    Remorse for doing his job in 1991 is neither necessary nor likely to get him off the hook for being an old white male politician. After 27 years, Anita Hill is still waiting for a personal apology from Joe Biden. Apparently, the former vice president has yet to reach out for a private tte--tte with the law professor who accused Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his confirmation hearings. But while Biden hasnt been able to pick up the phone to talk to her about events from the fall of 1991, he understands that his connection to...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Tuesday apologized for previously identifying as Native American. Warren, who apologized recently to the Cherokee Nation for a DNA test showing that she had Native American ancestry, told The Washington Post that the apology was meant to include identifying herself as Native American while at a professor at Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania. "I told him I was sorry for furthering confusion about tribal citizenship, Warren told the Post. I am also sorry for not being more mindful about this decades ago. We had a good conversation. Her apology comes hours before President...

    ST. LOUIS A St. Louis newscaster has apologized for what he called an unintentional racial slur while referencing Martin Luther King Jr., nearly two weeks after the same phrase cost another broadcaster his job. KTVI-TV's Kevin Steincross said during a Thursday morning broadcast that an upcoming tribute would honor "Martin Luther Coon Jr." Steincross apologized during a later broadcast, saying he has "total respect for Dr. King, what he meant and what he continues to mean to our country." KTVI says managers spoke with Steincross and believe the phrase was inadvertent and not reflective of his "core beliefs." Vice...

    Pelosi wrote: The U.S. Secret Service was designated as the lead federal agency responsible for coordinating, planning, exercising, and implementing security for National Special Security Events. However, both the U.S. Secret Service and the Department of Homeland Security [DHS] have not been funded for 26 days now with critical departments hamstrung by furloughs. Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress...

    When you apologize for using a term that you yourself call "vulgar, crass and offensive," wouldn't you include in your apology the person against whom you used it? Apparently not, if you're Mika Brzezinski, and the person you insulted is a prominent conservative. Returning to Morning Joe today after a day off for "a family matter," Mika Brzezinski apologized for having on Wednesday's show called Secretary of State Mike Pompeo a "butt boy." NewsBusters editor Scott Whitlock reported the slur here. But whereas Brzezinski apologized "especially to the LGBT community" and to her colleagues, she didn't apologize . . ....

And I want to begin with two words Im sorry, the Megyn Kelly Today host said as she fought back tears. You may have heard that yesterday we had a discussion here about political correctness and Halloween costumes, and that conversation turned to whether it is ever okay for a person of one race to dress up as another a black person making their face lighter or a white person making...

    For many years people have asked whether I still agree with my book I Kissed Dating Goodbye. In addition to this question, some readers have told me the book harmed them. Two years ago I began a process of re-evaluating the book. This included inviting people to share their stories with me on my website, personal phone calls with readers, an in-depth study of issues surrounding my book overseen by one of my graduate school professors, and finally, creating a documentary film that captured the conversations with people who were reshaping my thinking. For me, its been important for this...

    A descendant of Pocahontas, the 17th-century Powhatan princess, said Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) needs to apologize for claiming to be Native American for political gain. Appearing on Tucker Carlson Tonight, Debbie White Dove Porreco said she was glad the Massachusetts Democrat finally took the DNA test, which she urged her to do back in May. "It did prove that she wasn't the Cherokee Indian that she was claiming to be for so long," Porreco said on the program Tuesday. "I think she's guilty of claiming she's an American Indian but has no proof -- and then [is] using it for...
