Thursday afternoon on Martin Bashirs MSNBC show, a disagreement over the implications of a current Army general denouncing military members who engage in partisan politics got heated quickly. The result was Bashir shouting down his opposing guest and cutting the segment short.
Earlier in the segment, GOP strategist Trey Hardin had said that military leaders are critical of the president, which prompted Bashir to bring up the recent Fox News quote in which General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, expresses disappointment in the anti-Obama campaign launched by several ex-military members (groups which Bashir characterized as Swift Boat groups, in reference to the 2004 pro-Bush groups that attacked John Kerrys military record).

Why take anything from a limey plick of arab descent?
A web based radio program of freerepublic would get me as a listener. In fact, each day the mods could select audio commentary sent in from freepers.
Microsoft is out of that game. They’ve cut their losses.
You’ll notice that if you type msnbc.com into a new browser tab, that it resolves to nbcnews.com.
You can say that again.
That they are a little right of center is about the best you can say about them.
Where has that incompetent little puke been hiding lately? I haven't seen him since the election in '08 when his political opinion was still terribly irrelevant.
He is now host of the Reality show “Stars Earn Stripes”.
These people never go away.
Another left wing media tramp starts to fade into oblivion.
I get the impression that these people clueless guests go on these MSNBC shows having never watched them before. This is Bashir’s act, as with Sharpton.
If you go on those shows you must go on the attack, and start with the MSNBC host. Call him a Obama mouth-piece.
FOX is the New Left...Reptile Repubs, Brainy Blondes, a bit of Saudi Arabia, True Blower O’Reilly, more crap that makes it almost as unwatchable as the rest of TeeVee!
I quit watching BOR about a decade ago. I don’t see how people stand to watch him. His ego/big head outgrew his studio long ago.
Good catch. I guess it is OK if you are a retired general officer and take sides.
