Schlessinger apologizes for racial slur

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 13 (UPI) -- U.S. radio personality Laura Schlessinger has apologized for repeatedly using the N-word while speaking to a black caller on her talk show this week.

"I talk every day about doing the right thing. And yesterday, I did the wrong thing," CNN reported the author said about the remarks she made on her Sirius/XM satellite show Tuesday.


Schlessinger's views have sparked controversy in the past. She lost her syndicated television series after she called homosexuality "a biological error" in 1998, CNN noted.
