White House press secretary Jay Carney said that he called officials at MSNBC to convey to the cable station the administration's anger toward a remark made by an analyst Thursday morning.
Washington was abuzz Thursday after longtime Washington journalist Mark Halperin used a profane term to describe President Obama's tone during Wednesday's press conference.

I’m sure they had it on speed dial.
What's "profane" is Obama in the oval office.
Direct complaints to 1800 EAT-SH*T.
Profanity is all I have left for these commie clowns.
Meanwhile, The American Penis Society also called to complain...and they have a better case!
Whiners! Can’t take the heat!
Have you ever seen a President with such thin-skin and such blatant open control of the MSM??
Like they say in the Mexican Marines, el tougho sh!to!
Semper Fi, in that original WWII meaning!
(historically correct speaking)
aka: Dick Gaines
Ozero cannot afford to have anyone from inside the tent calling it as it is.
I sense this guy is getting closer to blow. He looked a bit unsteady yesterday, almost drunk in fact. In responding to his canned questions, he was not dynamic, seemed to be grasping for lines as if they were not right there on the teleprompter. He had a minion call because the last thing he wants is to be actually confronted by anyone from the MSM. I was waiting for this question: If you are serious about reducing the deficit, why have you dismissed your own commission and adopted none of their recommendations? I think had someone asked that in a confrontational manner, he would have gone Mt. St. Helens.
What a petty little d!ck.
What was the actual remark? That Obama was being a d*ck?
Awwwwwww did it hurt their little bitty . . . feelings?
When he was a kid, Obama never heard, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
Thin-skinned is right. Barry is a real piece of work, as are his media friends at MSNBC.
Seems like someone felt a prick over Halperin’s boner, to go dinging MS-DNC’s dong before the cock could even crow once and demanding they be hard on him.
Will Halperin ever work again?
Quite prickly on their part.
Goodness, Come on. Did anyone think they didnt call MSNBC and demand reprimand. Please
Can you just IMAGINE the orgy of liberal hate, and the hourly news updates telling the sheeple, if BUSH HAD DONE THIS????
He followed up with a drooling series of apologies.
closer to “blow” or to blows?
You said "skin" and "Obama" in the same sentence therefore you must be a racist. But to answer your question... no.
Carney corrected them. BO is not a dick, He’s a prick!
The White House CALLED to complain? I bet they were in the green room eating the food!
This is all starting to sound staged.
,,,with Halperin winding up getting the shaft.
Pen-is mightier than the sword!
Did it actually get broadcast that way, or bleeped?
This is what happens when you publicly diss a narcissist.
If Halperin had called Bush a “Dick”, instead of Obama, he’d be getting his own MSNBC TV Show, a fat contract, and the Journalist of the Year award, instead of a suspension....
Here’s a funny limerick on the subject of dicks and weiners:
There once was a pervert named Weiner
Who had a perverted demeanor
Forced from the Hill
For acting like Bill
Now Congress is one weiner leaner.
Helen Waite is the person in charge of our complaint department. If you wish to lodge a complaint, go to Helen Waite.
I seriesly had to prick up my ears when I heard this. Golly, what a tender young pile of offal is this president. Not cocksure at all.
I believe that all of us who have been Dicks all of our lives (my name is Richard) and proudly lived with our nicknames should sue der Fuehrer and the MSNBC flack for giving all Dicks a bad name. Hell, BO doesn’t even deserve the comparison to a male organ; he serves no useful purpose although he does make a regular habit of pissing on the country and the Constitution. All of us real Dicks don’t appreciate the comparison that ties him to our name or to our favorite body part. Refer to him as a wiener if you’d like.
Guess their Czar of Butt Hurt called to complain.
Joe’s producer couldn’t find the button in time, and it went out. Morning Joe was visibly p*ssed.
No kidding, talk about whiny little biotches.
Ha! Carney picked up the white phone.
Totally unnecessary. MSNBC is completely in their pocket.
This administration is ALWAYS pressuring news agencies and others to SUPPRESS THE TRUTH!
Halperin is sorry....Your Dickness!
Well, I would’ve used stronger language had Scarborough asked me.
Me too. I thought, they must be talking about President Johnson.
Mark Halperin used a profane term.. What is profane? The guy is a dick, he can’t be removed from that category.
Imagine that!....Obama being called a prick!
