Costas Stands By Gun Control Comments

NBC sportscaster Bob Costas on Monday defended using the Sunday Night Football halftime show as the platform for his gun control advocacy speech.

Costas told The New York Times that “I am emphatically not backing off from anything I said.” As for the criticism of delivering his speech during Sunday’s halftime show, Costas said it holds “no weight with me.” Those that blasted him for the decision “would have thought it was fine if they agreed with what I was saying,” Costas told the Times.
