After covering up their red-hot scandal featuring The View co-host Whoopi Goldberg’s (stage name) anti-Semitic comments about the holocaust Monday evening and Tuesday morning, ABC finally covered it Tuesday evening just in time to cover her on-air apology.

“Tonight, Whoopi Goldberg has apologized after saying the Holocaust was not about race, in comments she made on The View yesterday. What she said today and her apology amid the firestorm over her words,” anchor David Muir reported over 24-hours after Whoopi first made her comment.
