On Sunday, CNN’s Fredericka Whitfield claimed that she merely “misspoke” on Saturday when she called the gunman in the Dallas Police Department attack “very courageous and brave,” but fell short of actually apologizing for her controversial comments. 

During the 2:00 p.m. EDT edition of CNN Newsroom, Whitfield explained: “Yesterday, during a segment on the Dallas Police Department attack, I used the words courageous and brave when discussing the gunman. I misspoke and in no way believe the gunman was courageous nor brave.”
