Asked about Oscar Corral, the reporter accused of soliciting a prostitute this past Friday, Miami Herald editor Anders Gyllenhaal had only a few words: "It's an unfortunate situation. Oscar says this stems from a misunderstanding and the paper backs him up on this."
Asked by Riptide whether Corral was, um, working on a story at the time, Gyllenhaal responded: "I have no further comment."
Well, we guess that question is answered.
