Miami Herald editor: 'We did not apologize...for Glenn’s review.'

I recently sent several email queries to Miami Herald executive editor Mindy Marques regarding a controversial Glenn Garvin review. Today Herald managing editor Rick Hirsch replied:

Mindy forwarded this my way, and I wanted to clarify what is a somewhat misleading tweet.

We did not apologize in any way for Glenn’s review.  [Emphasis mine]. We did express regret for the tone of an email exchange with the group.

The "email exchange," I've learned, was between Garvin and a reader who forwarded them to Joanne Doroshow, executive director of the Center for Justice and Democracy.

Doroshow told me tonight by email that people who saw Garvin's emails, "were quite disturbed by Mr. Garvin's nasty and sarcastic tone." Doroshow said her group then forwarded the emails to Herald editors.
