Whoopi Goldberg Suspended Over Holocaust Comments

This week daytime talk show host, Whoopi Goldberg, apologized for saying that the Holocaust was not about race [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Whoopi has been suspended...

From CNN 

ABC News suspended "The View" host Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks on Tuesday night, hours after she apologized for having falsely declared on the daytime program that the Holocaust was "not about race."
In a statement, ABC News president Kim Godwin bluntly described Goldberg's comments about the Holocaust, which were made on "The View" Monday, as "wrong and hurtful."
"While Whoopi has apologized, I've asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments," Godwin said. "The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities." Godwin told staff in an internal email, which was obtained by CNN, that decisions over disciplinary matters are "never easy." And Godwin said that she appreciated Goldberg's apology.
