Beseiged Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen cancelled her appearance on NBC’s Meet The Press scheduled for Sunday, claiming she didn’t have any more to say about the furor over her comments that Ann Romney didn’t work a day in her life.
New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter called it a “rare cancellation” for the flagship Sunday morning news program.
“I thank David and the folks at MTP for offering me the chance to participate in the Roundtable. It will be an important political discussion, as it always is on Meet the Press. But I have said enough and while I have unfortunately made the Producer’s job tougher today, I don’t have anything more to say,” Rosen said in a statement. “I apologized to Mrs. Romney and work-in-home moms for mistakenly giving the impression that I do not think their work is valuable. Of course it is. I will instead spend the weekend trying to explain to my kids the value of admitting a mistake and moving on.”
I deeply apologize again to work-in-home moms, Mrs Romney & the POTUS. Not going on #MTP this weekend. I’m going to be a mom who stays home
