NEW YORK (AP) - Media critic Howard Kurtz is apologizing for several errors in a column he wrote about gay basketball player Jason Collins this past week.
Kurtz is the host of CNN's ``Reliable Sources.'' He brought two other media critics onto his show Sunday to question him about the story written on The Daily Beast suggesting Collins had hidden a previous engagement to a woman when he came out as gay in a Sports Illustrated story.
In fact, Collins had disclosed the engagement.
Kurtz says he was not only wrong on the facts, but he also shouldn't have written the story in the first place and was too slow to correct himself.
He promised to rebuild trust with viewers and asked them to consider his full career as a media critic.
