NBC’s Snyderman returns with apology

    NBC News medical reporter Nancy Snyderman is apologizing for violating her quarantine for Ebola exposure, saying she failed to appreciate how frightened Americans were of the disease.

    The veteran medical correspondent spoke with Matt Lauer on the “Today” show this morning before reporting on her first story in a month and a half, about women and depression. NBC had kept her off the air following an angry reaction to her being seen in her car getting takeout food after saying she’d stay in her New Jersey home. The incident compelled New Jersey authorities to then make her quarantine mandatory.

    Snyderman told Lauer she was very sorry for scaring her community and the country as a whole.
