#1 Apology not accepted. Your leftist ilk in the media are the ones responsible for getting Obama elected both times.

You demonize the right and cover up for the left.

You have more than a share in the destruction of this country by violating the journalistic traditions of fair reporting and became propagandists.

You and your kind are slime and until I see real behavior change, you and your kind can go fuck off and die alone and unloved in a ditch somewhere.

#2 Martin Bashir assumed nobody watched MSNBC and he could say anything he wanted but he managed to offend one of the three viewers and word got out.

Apology not accepted either. He should never work in television again for being such a raving potty mouth. Hold them to their own standard.

#5 I believe the old coin of the Left is 'institutional bigotry', the inherit culture of the place makes it OK to behave this way (see Lefty rants about 'male white culture'). Of course for the Left it's always been - one set of rules for me, another set of rules for thee.

#6 One has to wonder what the talk around the water-cooler at MSNBC is that he feels he can say such things.
Because you have to figure that what is said on the air is probably quite tame compared to what they say among themselves in private.

#7 So Bashir gets off with an apology which is most likely most insincere while Alec Baldwin gets fired for his slurs. I'm not trying to defend Baldwin but it seems there are different levels of punishment depending on who one slurs.

#8 ... While all animals are equal, some animals are more equal than others. Got to have an official 'Social Justice' scoring card to know the hierarchical ranking of special interest groups.

#9 Another Britt telling us how we should live. People like him are the reason we are no longer a colony. Go home you are disgusting and a coward.
