I was a little disturbed watching Buchanan and Matthews basically agree with Ferraro last night and defend her, changing the context. But after seeing Olbermann's smackdown, this was a little surprising:

On Abrams' awful show, Buchanan pulled his not surprisingly Ferraro-ish race rhetoric yet again (how does he survive on TV?) - Keli Goff replied angrily and a clearly annoyed Buchanan pulled a Bill O'Reilly and told her to shut up.

Rachel Maddow stepped in and told him he was out of line.

While overall Buchanan's defense of Ferraro was not as blatantly pushy as he was on Hardball
( see http://www.msnbc.msn.com/... ) -
coming just minutes after Olbermann's righteous rampage, maybe MSNBC need to look inwards on their own questionable words.

Regardless, I think anyone can agree that when Pat Buchanan is your strongest media apologist, you're not in good company.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
