(Huffington Post) After pressure from the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), a Fox affiliate anchor has issued an apology for calling MSNBC host and liberal commentator Rachel Maddow an “angry young man.”

Tricia Macke, a reporter with Fox 19 Cincinnati, posted “Rachel Maddow is an angry young man,” on her Facebook page last month, according to GLAAD. Despite receiving criticism, Macke defended herself, responding, “You are right. I’m sorry, I should’ve said ‘antagonistic,’” and “I knew what I was saying.”
