Watch: Why do Charlie Rose, Al Franken have apologies that sound so similar?

US

Two of the latest men to be accused of sexually harassing women are Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and PBS newsman Charlie Rose. Both have tried to do damage control with apology statements.

On today’s show, Doc had a thoughtful take on Rose and Franken’s respective apologies – which sound suspiciously similar and seem to follow this format:

  • Apologize without admitting guilt.
  • Keep it vague.
  • Explain why your alleged victims are remembering wrong.
  • Blame society for your personal issues.
  • Hope that we’ve all “learned something.”

Rose and Franken both conveniently “remembered” events surrounding their alleged sexual harassment and groping incidents differently than their accusers.
