MSNBC has gone completely off the deep end and at this point shames it's parent NBC who should pull the plug.
NBC, whether you agree with it's own left-leaning version of news journalism or not, at least pretends to live by some news organizations basic journalistic standards. MNBC has repeatedly violated all standards of broadcasting, let alone the 'news', hiring mostly angry, disenchanted and disenfranchised entertainers as news anchors, allowing all kinds of bigoted attacks to fester as 'breaking news' and then when they are challenged, the cable outlets administrators just ignore the criticism.
Beyond all that, which is really disscusting, they have virtually no ratings!
The latest outburst from 'correspondent' Martin Bashir attacking Sarah Palin and pleading for someone to 'defecate and piss in her mouth' is not only slanderous, but goes so far out of bounds morally, that most people, no matter how they lean politically, would immediately demand he lose his job!
Not a word from the bosses at MSNBC, who in their deafening silence, have shown they too have no standards at all. NBC, do the right thing! Shut the whole thing down and let some other entity find a new direction for the channel.
