<p>After a two-month leave of absence following her violation of an Ebola quarantine, NBC&#39;s chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman returned to the network with an appearance on Wednesday&#39;s <em>Today</em> and finally took personal responsibility for her actions: <strong>&quot;I&#39;m very sorry for not only scaring my community and the country, but adding to the confusion</strong>....I stepped outside the boundaries of what I promised to do and what the public expected of me. And for that, I&#39;m sorry.&quot;</p>

<p>That apology was in stark contrast to the <a href="http://newsbusters.org/blogs/kyle-drennen/2014/10/14/nbc-medical-editor…; target="_blank">initial statement</a> Snyderman put out in October, when she completely avoided any blame for breaking quarantine: &quot;While under voluntary quarantine guidelines, which called for our team to avoid public contact for 21 days, members of our group violated those guidelines and understand that our quarantine is now mandatory until 21 days have passed.&quot;</p>
