"The View" co-host was upset the newspaper "erased" her Oscar.

Whoopi Goldberg is sorry for calling out The New York Times for leaving her out of a feature on black Oscar winners.

"I said that I felt the reporting was shoddy and for that I'm going to apologize, OK?" she said on The View Wednesday.

"I personally found the article really confusing, and as I said, I was also quite hurt that Cuba Gooding Jr., Louis Gossett Jr., and myself were not included in this expose about black Hollywood. But for saying it was shoddy reporting, I apologize, New York Times."

Earlier this week, she said the Times "erased" her 1990 win for Ghost by leaving her out, but the Times said it was not meant to be comprehensive, but just note how the number of black nominees has dropped since Halle Berry and Denzel Washington won in 2002.
