Alec Baldwin and Ed Schultz have both been suspended in the past for making reprehensible statements on their MSNBC shows. Why hasn't Bashir ? His was the most reprehensible of all three. For those of you who didn't hear Martin Bashir suggested someone should crap in Palin's mouth and urinate in her eyes. So much for "civility" from the left...Mr. President, where is your 2 cent lecture on civility now? Not an off the cuff comment his rant was carefully produced for TV airing and had to be approved by others producing the show - who should take the hit...anyone? Search YouTube for it.

Sue, criticism is one thing but scummy gutter talk like Bashir fabricated for public television says tons more about him, his personality, his character, his ideology and beliefs than anything about Sarah Palin who actually stated the truth.
Agreed. Criticizing her choice of analogy would be fine. His disgusting rant should not be tolerated by anyone, I don't care which side of the aisle you support.
I saw this last night and I think it is the only commentary that actually explains the whole thing truthfully http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2JXQZBX_jE Like or hate Anne Coulter she has a nack for getting to the root of a matter and liberal bullies.
Schultz and Baldwin apologized too- they were suspended. How can you liken anything Palin ever said to what Bashir said? - REALITY CHECK! What does Bashir think of the pro-slavery Democratic Party of the old south?They practiced slavery, Palin didn't
Bashir didn't practice slavery either, nor did he 'crap in Palin's mouth and urinate in her eyes'. He used words to lash out at her in a moment of frustration, then apologized. Rush Limbaugh does it all the time and he's still on the air.
Except it wasn't a moment of frustration. It was a scripted teleprompter speech.
Rush Limbaugh, Palin, no conservatives with the public presence of a Bashir would ever even think of broadcasting such scummy rhetoric and you know it - because Palin said being in debt is like slavery? Really? you just have no intellectual honesty.
And personal attacks indicate you have no interest in a discussion.
personal attack?...boo hoo! Nice cop out - you just can't take criticism. Bashir wasn't lashing out from frustration & to allege that or equate anything Palin hasdone with the likes of Bashir's behavior IS intellectually dishonest. Can't deny th
Being in debt is like slavery, no doubt about it.
I saw this last night it is the only commentary I've seen that actually explains the whole thing truthfully http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2JXQZBX_jE As Coulter says Palin made it clear she wasn't talking about racial slavery. Bashir has no excuse.
Gee, its so nice to hear he apologized, a 1 minute apology? I'd like to hear him elaborate on apologizing, address some of the decrepit aspects of his & MSNBC's & its employees' behavior SICKOS all ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HeLH2OsT0DQ
