What happened: During a discussion with fellow anchors on the devastating Japanese earthquake, CNBC anchor Larry Kudlow said: "The human toll here looks to be much worse than the economic toll and we can be grateful for that. And the human toll is a tragedy, we know that, but these markets, all these markets, right, stocks, commodities, oil, gold, there is no major breakout or breakdown and I have to look at that positively."
The apology: On March 11, he tweeted, "I did not mean to say human toll in Japan less important than economic toll.Talking about markets. I flubbed the line. Sincere apology."
