A Whoopi Update...

As I mentioned yesterday, on the February 14 telecast of The View, Whoopi Goldberg slammed the New York Times for not including her in an article about black Oscar winners.

The challenge with Goldberg's tirade was that although the article was about black Oscar winners, it did not list every winner in history, only those who have won since 2002, when both Denzel Washington and Halle Berry won for Best Actor and Actress, respectively.

According to Entertainment Weekly, on today's telecast, Goldberg apologized for calling the newspaper's reporting "shoddy".

Not quite the Emily Litella-esque "Never mind" I was hoping for, but it's good to see Goldberg take some accountability for her misplaced criticism. (Now, Whoopi, let's talk about Burglar or Eddie...)
