RUSH: … if that had happened on Fox? If that had happened on Fox, whoever did it would be destroyed by now, would have been accused of doing it on purpose. You know, there was… I forget this poor guy’s name, an ESPN tennis reporter who described Venus Williams in the Australian Open as really executing “guerrilla tactics” in controlling the net. He’s been fired for calling her a “gorilla,” but it’s g-u-e-r-r-i-l-l-a. In fact, Nike was running a commercial talking about “guerrilla tactics” in tennis! This guy was fired, and he’s still been fired, and everybody knows that he did not utter a racial word at all, and he still can’t get a job — and the New York Times is still running stories about the guy being a racist!

The moment caught a lot of attention online, prompting Morris to issue an apology. She tweeted: “Earlier today, while reporting on the tragic news of Kobe Bryant’s passing, I unfortunately stuttered on air, combining the names of the Knicks and the Lakers to say ‘Nakers.’ Please know I did not & would NEVER use a racist term. I apologize for the confusion this caused.”
