Novak takes the high road; apologizes to viewers

Bob Novak, after his on-air meltdown yesterday, took the time to apologize to viewers today for his expletive-ridden tirade.

Robert Novak apologized Friday for swearing on the air and walking off a CNN set, but said it had nothing to do with the federal probe sparked by his revelation of a CIA officer's name in a 2003 column.

"I apologize for my conduct and I'm sorry I did it," he said in an interview.

CNN has pulled him off the air indefinitely. Novak said "I'll follow their guidance" on when he returns.

No muss, no fuss.

I can't excuse his behavior, but I certainly accept his apology. I'm glad he stood up and took his hand-slap like a man.

There's no word, at present, as to when CNN will let him back on the air.

On 'Hardball with Chris Matthews' the colorful Mr. Matthews said EXACTLY THE SAME THING as Novak in a heated moment. I don't think MSNBC has suspended Matthews.

Novak is a true proffessional and a gentleman and he showed this by simply walking away from the situation. I know he wanted to knock some teeth out but he kept his cool and walked away. and truthfully, if he had stayed, i think alot more worse things would have come out of his mouth outside of 'bullshit'.

Novak is a nutcase who could have handled the situation with aplomb, but instead decided to reveal what an Underman he really is.

Carville can bring that out of anyone. I can't think of a more obnoxious man on earth than that guy.
