  •  This is stupid... (18+ / 0-)

    ..what he said was mild compared to what OTHERS on MSNBC have said about Palin or even Obama! Why Bashir? Probably because he has journalistic integrity, with a dash of opprobrium certainly, but show me a "modern" journalist without an opinion??

    I'm waiting for Rachel to get her walking papers. She is ruffling a lot of feathers and I believe it will be a matter of time before they find a pretext to force her out. Probably with some trumped-up "controversy" or being fed another ginned-up fake story ala Dan Rather.

      When he said Palin above anyone else would qualify if anyone did for the depraved abuse that was actual US slavery, that wasn't at all mild. It was probably worse than anything Palin, Tebaggers or most others have ever said about Obama or others.

      But it was only a little past the line, because the line of deserved slamming for Palin's comments (and entire existence now) must be drawn towards the extremes of rhetoric. A public apology and a few days suspension "to reflect" would have been sufficient.

      Meanwhile Palin, whose toxic word salads ramble around the line every day, is still highly paid to be seen on popular TV news stations.

      ...this tellepathy moment.  I know spelling leaves much to be desired but I'm sure you know from where I come.  Damn we need to get Martin and Rachel on the same station in side by side time slots.  Ratings would go through the roof as they say.
