If they fired him for anything, it should have been for his lousy ratings.
Well those who equate real slavery with economic conditions of any kind are just a bunch of complete azzhats. That is precisely what Bashir was alluding to with his crass comment about Palin. HE WAS CORRECTLY POINTING OUT THAT IF SARAH WAS A SLAVE AS SHE CLAIMS TO BE BECAUSE OF GOVERNMENT DEBT THAT SOMEONE COULD AND LIKELY WOULD DEFECATE IN HER MOUTH. SLAVES GOT THAT TREATMENT WHEN THEY OFFENDED THEIR MASTERS IN SOME WAY OR ANOTHER. I don't support what he said in any respect at all but I am not as nearly offended by it as the complete idiocy, garbage, stupidity and just plain crap that comes out of the mouth of Palin.

I loved Martin Bashir and am sorry he resigned, but in today's media I understand why he did.

I saw the rant he lambasted Sarah Palin with and while I thought it was harsh, I agreed (I have strong feelings over conservatives invoking slavery into everything when the majority of them have no idea of American history and how harsh slavery was in this country).

I hope he bounces back somewhere else. He's quite a talent.

OH NO! POOR MARTIN! What is there left for someone after already being at the very low, ghetto MSNBC?

[quote=kidkaos2;32494408 Was what Limbaugh said about Fluke comical to you too?

And that's why he should be fired. Not for saying something hurtful about Sarah Palin. For being unprofessional. I have no problems whatsoever if he wants to say nasty things about Palin at a dinner party or at the golf course. But he did it on national television. That's why he should be fired. He has been insulting conservatives for years without any outcry against him. It's not a free speech issue. Maddow and Matthews insult conservatives on a daily basis and nobody calls for their termination. It's the nature of what he said this time. It's an issue of being professional. Of being a civilized human being in public.[/quote]

Bashir via this comment, and Limbaugh via Fluke, were , in both instances, unforgivably unprofessional, and both should have been fired for cause. There is nothing wrong with being critical, as Maddow, Matthews, O'Reilly, and many other hosts are, but being unprofessional crosses the line.

Why do the liberals always have low class words pouring out of their mouths. It is a habit that anything goes with their free speech.

Yes, well the libs collectively are tolerant when one of their guys makes a disparaging remark, however, if some con commentator said what MB did, he would have been the the target of a liberal mob.

MB crossed over from disparaging to unprofessional and disgusting.

Liberals have their feces-stained fingerprints all over everything that is tasteless and vile in culture. Then they pretend to be outraged when Limbaugh calls somebody nobody's ever heard of a "sl*t" -- a word which feminazis added to their grrrl power vocab but quickly reverts back to being a bad, bad word no white male named Rush Limbaugh is allowed to say.

Oh, you mean like Sarah Palin talking about Obama's balls on Fox News? Kind of like that? I had no idea she was a liberal.
