You can fire 10 Martin Bashirs and it won't start to repair damage done to NBC News
Martin Bashir, the embattled MSNBC show host who on Nov. 15 urged a crude and graphic form of punishment for Sarah Palin, resigned from the channel Wednesday.
MSNBC could afford to do nothing less than force Bashir out in the wake of his hateful speech.
Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, tried stonewalling the mounting criticism even after Bashir delivered an on-air apology, but the words and actions were too gross and hateful to allow Bashir to return.
Under Griffin's leadership, MNSBC has become the leading proponent of such ideologically-charged, rabble-rousing rhetoric.
They don't do news at MSNBC any more. They just do propaganda. And you can only attack your ideological enemies so long before you find yourself in the realm of hate speech as Bashir did.
I hope this event will help Comcast come to understand how deeply Griffin and his cynical programming strategy have damaged the brand of NBC News and the network in general.

GOOD! Let’s hope that no one else hires him.
Piers, is next.
“Lets kick him and Piers Morgan out of the U.S.A.”
I have never seen PMSNBC, but I think there should be a move to boycott any and all sponsors.
Let them move to North Korea.
Too bad these cable-satellite systems would never ever carry a conservative channel
Great, but were is the apology to Sara? Yeah I know.....****crickets****
Next, MSNBC should shut down. Who would miss it? Let ait become the extreme group on the margin of mainstream America and not let it pretend to be anything greater.
Can anyone say blog, website and podcast? This is where MSNBC belongs.
The author of this piece is a card-carrying lib, too.
Bashir is a symptom. Notice how long it took NBC Universal, GE, and Comcast to act.
Amazes me that anyone was watching to react to Bashirs’ rantings. MSNBC hosts have to go over the top with their comments or else nobody would know that they’re still on.
Where’s left to go after MSNBC? The Scranton local access cable channel?
Did that Islamist-B-Gone solution finally work?
Martin is forced to eat his words.
He’ll sign on with The Compost within a week.Count on it!
What is LOWER than MSNBC.....Al Jazeera???? Tight race to the bottom, but I think that MSNBC (don’t forget that MICROSFOT is the MS part of MSNBC) is the LOWEST of the LOW!!
