"NBC News veteran Tom Brokaw apologized Sunday evening for comments he made earlier in the day on 'Meet the Press' calling for Hispanics in the U.S. to 'work harder at assimilation.'
The comments from the former host of 'NBC Nightly News' sparked a quick backlash both on social media and on set from PBS 'NewsHour' White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor, who also appeared on the same 'Meet the Press' panel. Hours after his comments aired, Brokaw apologized online.
'I am sorry, truly sorry, my comments were offensive to many. The great enduring American tradition of diversity is to be celebrated and cherished,' he wrote on Twitter, part of a flurry of posts backtracking on his earlier remarks. 'I am sorry - I never intended to disparage any segment of our rich, diverse society which defines who we are. ... Finally, I am sorry I failed to convey my strong belief that diversity - dynamic and inclusive is what makes America.'"
