On Wednesday morning’s The View, Whoopi Goldberg apologized for her lengthy criticisms on Monday’s show of a New York Times piece about black Oscar winners.

“I’m going to apologize to The New York Times for calling their reporting ‘shoddy,'” said Goldberg.

“I personally found the article really confusing, and I also was quite hurt that Cuba Gooding Jr., Louis Gossett Jr., and myself were not included in this expose about black Hollywood,” she said. “But for saying it was shoddy reporting, I apologize, New York Times.”
