The Hill: While in the middle of a broadcast and reading breaking news live on the air, Rachel Maddow was overcome more than once, several times in fact. She had been reading information she’d just received about young children and infants being taken to shelters in Texas.
Excerpt from The Hill:
Maddow apologized later in a Twitter thread, and shared the story again. “Ugh, I’m sorry,” she wrote. “If nothing else, it is my job to actually be able to speak while I’m on TV.”“I apologize for losing it there for a moment,” she added. “Not the way I intended that to go, not by a mile.”
