NBC Apologizes for Stupid Emmy Trick

Who's Apologizing Now?
NBC - who's ratings were down AND they were stupid enough NOT to change this skit after the news of the day. Shows you about OLD MEDIA mindset...we can't change anything, it's "in the can". Well, NBC is in the can, now:
NBC Apologizes For Emmy Plane Crash Skit
Via AP:

LOS ANGELES -- NBC said it regrets a comedy skit that opened the Emmy awards show Sunday night involving a plane crash.
Hours earlier, 49 people were killed in a Kentucky crash. Tim Gilbert, the station manager of NBC's affiliate (WLEX) in Lexington, Ky., said that the skit ranked "somewhere between ignorance and incompetence."
