‘I am deeply sorry': MSNBC host apologizes after sparking outrage by saying he is ‘uncomfortable’ calling fallen soldiers ‘heroes’

MSNBC host Chris Hayes has issued a public apology one day after sparking a firestorm by saying on his show that he feel ‘uncomfortable’ with calling fallen soldiers ‘heroes.’

‘On Sunday, in discussing the uses of the word ‘hero’ to describe those members of the armed forces who have given their lives, I don’t think I lived up to the standards of rigor, respect and empathy for those affected by the issues we discuss that I’ve set for myself,’ Hayes said in a blog post on his show’s website. ‘I am deeply sorry for that.’

‘As many have rightly pointed out, it’s very easy for me, a TV host, to opine about the people who fight our wars, having never dodged a bullet or guarded a post or walked a mile in their boots,’ Hayes wrote.

The Weekly Standard has reported that the host went on to say that in seeking to discuss the civilian-military divide in the American society, and the distance between those who serve and the vast majority who do not, he ended up reinforcing it.
