New York, NY. Anthony Federico, the ESPN editor fired for his "Chink in the Armor" headline on a story about Knicks phenom, Chinese-American Jeremy Lin, has offered an apology:
“This had nothing to do with me being cute or punny,” Anthony Federico
told the New York Daily News. “I’m so sorry that I offended people. I’m
so sorry if I offended Jeremy.”
His replacement, Josh Asskin, lasted one day after posting the headline, "A Spade is a Spade: Udonis Haslem Upbraided for Niggardly Ball-Handling."
Said Mr. Asskin after being ushered out the door of ESPN's headquarters, "What?"
