Snyder didn't get apology; now he's suing

By now, you might have heard that Redskins owner Daniel Snyder is suing the Washington City Paper for $2 million and unspecified punitive damages, saying the paper and staff writer Dave McKenna have libeled him.

Though it had been reported earlier that Snyder wanted McKenna to lose his job, he told reporters, including the Washington Post, that all he wanted was an apology.

"We were hoping that he'd apologize, hoping they'd say sorry," Snyder said Friday afternoon in Dallas. "All they had to do was apologize and retract their lies."

He’s suing because the paper ran an article called “The Cranky Redskins Fan's Guide to Dan Snyder," where a picture of Snyder with hand-drawn horns and facial hair was featured. Snyder said the article was anti-Semitic, but the paper has stood by its story.

More from Snyder’s interview (via the Post) Friday:

"My father was a journalist," Snyder said. "And I've never sued anybody in the media. And I handle criticism -- I mean, I get that all day long. You guys made a living off it. And that's fine; that's your job and I respect that. But you can't call people names, criminals. You can't make fun of someone's wife and her effort for breast cancer awareness as national spokesperson for the National Football League as a breast cancer survivor. It's just wrong.

"What's wrong is wrong, and this is wrong. And this guy crossed the line. Even if he does any homework, I don't know him. It's not personal. This is just an issue where somebody did something flat-out wrong."
