“The first thing they teach you in journalism school is don’t be the story,” Nichols begins. “I don’t plan to break that rule at present.
“But I also don’t want to let this moment pass without saying how much I respect and how much I value our colleagues here at ESPN. How deeply, deeply sorry I am for disappointing those I hurt, particularly, Maria Taylor.”
Nichols didn’t say something for which she ought to apologize. Aside from her mockable perception that her bosses voted for Donald Trump, in fact.
This audio was held for a complete 12 months and leaked three weeks earlier than Maria Taylor’s contract expires. The clip was leaked to help in Taylor’s unreasonable calls for for $8 million a 12 months.
