Amen to that

Holy cow. I just read that Halperin has been suspended indefinitely from the network that no ones watches. Picking on Bush would've gotten him a raise.

Z said...

Wait, WHY did he get suspended?

:-)

Z: Here's the official MSNBC memo:

"Mark Halperin’s comments this morning were completely inappropriate and unacceptable.  We apologize to the President, The White House and all of our viewers. We strive for a high level of discourse and comments like these have no place on our air. Therefore, Mark will be suspended indefinitely from his role as an analyst."

If you watch the video, you see Mika and Joe actually goad Halperin into saying what he really felt.

Wouldn't you know that that was the moment I switched over to Imus or FOX.

So much for honesty as the best policy! Perhaps we should send an email to MSNBC and let them know that we appreciate the media telling the truth for a change.

I believe the real disappointment to them is that it didn't get edited out.

Another MSNBC reporter pulled a Rick Santelli. How about that?


I must say I do love when that happens.

Lol

silly rabbit: Honesty isn't a word MSNBC cares about when it relates to anti-Obama and conservative causes. Then again, honesty doesn't rate high in any of their programs.

I don't know if it would help to send emails, but it couldn't hurt. I'm OK with it. Count me in.

what does that mean "a kind" of a dick? Are there various "kind"?

This kind of thing gets them more notice than anything since no one watches them.

cube said...

Jan: I would guess the term "kind of a dick" may refer to differing types of dicks, i.e., big dick, tiny dick, dick with jug ears. Halperin wasn't clear, but right about now I think he regrets his comment.

cube said...

Lisa: I didn't know much about Santelli's past beyond his outbreak, but I thought Halperin was a total liberal. I think his complaint about Obama is that he's not being liberal enough. What a *ick!

Wow! I can't believe he got suspended!! The liberal media have used far worse words about President Bush, Sarah Palin and so forth.

But one wrong slip-up about Obama and you get canned. Unbelievable.

Btw, I believe the word is quite fitting for the loser in office.

Suspended for what? The man dared to call the Obamessiah a name. The child-man president couldn't handle it so he had his press lackie call and complain to PMSNBC.
