Whoopi Goldberg Apologizes to 'New York Times' for Criticizing Oscars Article

Photo Courtesy - Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Whoopi Goldberg on Wednesday apologized to The New York Times for dismissing its report on the lack of African-Americans in this year's Oscar-nominated films as "sloppy."

Earlier this week, Goldberg said on ABC's The View that she was hurt "terribly" that the Times article cited some of the previous African-American Oscar winners by name but failed to mention her best supporting actress Oscar win in 1991, for Ghost.

The Times later said it stood by its story and that its intention was not to list every African-American Oscar winner in the article.

On Wednesday's edition of The View, Goldberg said, "I personally found the article really confusing, and as I said, I also was quite hurt that Cuba Gooding Jr., Louis Gossett Jr., and myself were not included in this expose about black Hollywood. But for saying it was shoddy reporting, I apologize, New York Times."
