CNN Reporter Blames Veterans for Baltimore Riots
An emotional Brooke Baldwin apologized Wednesday for suggesting that soldiers who become police officers after returning from war are "ready do do battle" and contribute to the unrest in cities like Baltimore. "I absolutely misspoke," Baldwin said on CNN's "New Day" Wednesday morning. "I inartfully chose my words a hundred percent, and I just wish, just speaking to all of you this morning ... I wholeheartedly retract what I said. I’ve thought tremendously about this, and to our nation’s veterans — to you, I have the utmost respect for our men and women in uniform, and I wanted you to know that this morning. So to all of you, I owe you a tremendous apology. I am truly sorry."
