CBS broadcaster Gary Danielson has caught a lot of heat this week after he laughed when a photographer for the University of Georgia was knocked out during Auburn-Georgia last Saturday. Today, he took the time to apologize on air for his mistake:

An appropriate apology for a mistake of that magnitude. As Kyle Koster wrote on the day of the incident, nobody thought Danielson was intentionally making light of what ended up being a serious situation, but that doesn't change the fact that it was bad. Danielson does the right thing here.
