Skip Bayless Apologizes To Chris Broussard

Skip Bayless apologized Tuesday on ESPN’s First Take for accusing Chris Broussard of selling his “journalistic soul” to get close to LeBron James:

“In the heat of that debate, Chris said a couple things about me that I found offensive. I thought Chris questioned my integrity. And yesterday, in the heat of the debate, I questioned Chris’s integrity. I deeply regret that. I went too far. We spoke for about an hour last night, and I told him I was sorry for doing that. I have the utmost regard for Chris Broussard as a reporter. No finer reporter do I know … I have high regard for Chris as a human being. If nothing else, I hope this deepens or friendship.”

Anyone else think Skip got a call from management and was told to apologize?
