      Another day and another apology from a high-profile media personality.

      Today, it was former Sportsnet broadcaster Gregg Zaun's turn after Rogers Media canned him last week for "inappropriate behaviour and comments".

      "Without any exception whatsoever, I want to issue an absolute apology for any harm or distress which may have been caused by my comments with any female colleagues over the recent past," Zaun declared in a statement. "It has never been my intention to give offense to anyone."

      He then claimed that after doing a lot of soul-searching, he recognizes that "my ignorance of the harm caused by my language does not excuse it—for which I accept responsibility."

      "While I am well recognized for my unfiltered criticism of others within the sports world, which has made many critics and enemies—in ignorance I allowed a similar attitude to influence all aspects of my lifestyle, causing distress for female colleagues."

      And on it went.
