MSNBC reporter says she said ‘Nakers’ on air, not ‘Ni**ers’ and that it was a combination of Knicks + Lakers:
Earlier today, while reporting on the tragic news of Kobe Bryant’s passing, I unfortunately stuttered on air, combining the names of the Knicks and the Lakers to say “Nakers.” Please know I did not & would NEVER use a racist term. I apologize for the confusion this caused.

Well, this is quite the flub.
An unidentified reporter on MSNBC just said Kobe Bryant was “perfectly cast on the Los Angeles Ni**ers, um, Los Angeles Lakers” during her coverage of the Kobe Bryant helicopter crash. Did we hear that right?
