Accuracy in Media

David Horsey, a columnist at the Los Angeles Times, recently characterized the White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as a “slightly chunky soccer mom” that would be “more comfortable in sweats and running shoes.”

Outrage ensued, and Horsey has since apologized, saying the following:

I want to apologize to Times readers — and to Sarah Huckabee Sanders — for a description that was insensitive and failed to meet the standards of our newspaper. It also failed to meet the expectations I have for myself. It surely won’t be my last mistake, but this particular error will be scrupulously avoided in my future commentaries. I’ve removed the offending description.
