John Tomase is promising an explanation to the whole Matt Walsh episode for Friday’s paper.

Shots will have more on the matter for Thursday morning and then a follow-up after Tomase’s Friday story gets posted at the Herald’s website (or whenever it is made public).

From his 5:24 p.m. post on Wednesday:

Readers of this space have probably been asking themselves, “Where the hell is Tomase?” over the last couple of days and it’s a fair query. Right now I’m just landing from Washington and working on a story about Arlen Specter’s press conference regarding his interview with Matt Walsh.

While that is going to have me tied up for the rest of the night, I just wanted to make one thing clear — I know I screwed up on the Rams taping story and I don’t intend to hide behind today’s apology or an editor’s note. In Friday’s Herald I will explain as clearly as I can where that story went wrong and begin the journey of restoring your trust in my reporting.

I cannot in good conscience demand accountability of the people I cover and then not provide it myself. So it’s coming on Friday. Just be patient.
