Mitch Landrieu demands, and gets, apology from Fox sportscaster
 
Mayor Mitch Landrieu isn't happy with comments made this week by Chris Myers, a sportscaster for Fox.

On the Dan Patrick radio show, Myers had this to say in discussing the floods that recently devastated Nashville:

"It's a great country here. We have disasters issues when people pull together and help themselves and I thought the people in Tennessee, unlike...I'm not going to name names...when a natural disaster hits, people weren't standing on a rooftop trying to blame the government, okay. They helped each other out through this."

Magnifying small parts of a large problem will always create controversy, pain and heated-debates. Thank you 24 hour news networks...

I met Chris a few times when he worked in NOLA, a nice guy.

He used poor judgement with his comment, however.
