Apology: Brian’s K.I.S.S.

Kilmeade Keeps It Short & Simple. Today Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade apologized for controversial and inaccurate comments that he made about Muslims last Friday. When defending Bill O’Reilly for saying on The View that “Muslims attacked us on on 9/11,” Brian had declared, “They were outraged that someone was saying that there was a reason, there was a certain group of people that attacked us on 9/11. It wasn’t just one person, it was one religion. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.” Not surprisingly, he sustained significant flack for his statement, including being named the “World’s Worst Person” and called an un-American bastard by MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann on his Countdown program. This morning, Brian said, “Sorry.”

As his sports segment ended in the first hour (@ 6:37 a.m. ET), Brian tersely stated, On this show on Friday, I was talking about Bill O’Reilly’s appearance on The View and I said this: Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims. Well, I misspoke. I don’t believe all terrorists are Muslims. I’m sorry about that if I offended or offended [sic] or hurt anybody’s feelings. But, that’s it.” Segueing immediately to the next segment with barely a pause, Brian continued, “Now, let’s go over to Stuart [Varney, a FBN business news guest].

And, that was it.
