Turner Apologizes For Morgan's Comments On Palin During TNT Pregame Show
Published January 28, 2011
SAY WHAT? CBSSPORTS.com's Royce Young wrote Barkley and Smith "should've known what kind of territory they were walking into when they asked the question." Young added, "I'm not sure anyone has ever made Charles Barkley speechless, but Tracy Morgan did exactly that" (CBSSPORTS.com, 1/27). In N.Y., Adam Caparell writes Barkley and Smith were "laughing nervously" after Morgan's comment, and Johnson "was rendered speechless before bashfully trying to move the show in a different direction" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 1/28). In DC, Lisa de Moraes writes, "Now we'd like to introduce TNT to something called 'the seven-second delay'" (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 1/28).
