Update: Sanchez did give a somber apology today on CNN. He looked like he had been taken to the woodshed.
Here is his quote:
â€œWe have been unable to independently confirm that quote. We should not have reported it without independent confirmation, and for that, I apologize.â€
â€œI feel itâ€™s important on this show to hold folks accountable whenever they make mistakes. Thatâ€™s what I try to do. And you know what? That should include myself, and that should also include my team. Itâ€™s important to let you know that.â€
