Time & MSNBC’s Mark Halperin’s NSFW On-Air Attack on President Obama

Time Editor-in-Chief & MSNBC political commentator Mark Halperin has a long track record of bias against Democrats. Most infamously, in June 2006 as ABC’s political unit director, Halperin warned, “If I were [Democrats], I’d be scared to death about November’s elections.” Just 5 months later, Democrats picked up 32 seats in the House & 7 seats in the Senate.

But today, Halperin outdid himself, using a curse to describe President Obama during MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” If he’s still employed by Time or MSNBC by the end of the day, can we finally put the “liberal media” meme to rest once & for all? Video NSFW:

    …that Halperin’s comment was one of his more astute political observations, in explaining how the GOP/Conservatives viewed yesterday’s event.

    I understand that his comment was rude, and I understand why he was tossed, but I also think it is ironic that what finally gets this yutz thrown off the air is not his years of hackery and incompetent political analysis, but an honestly felt comment that actually was aimed at getting to some truth, albeit one expressed crudely.

    A recent Roll Call article mentioned Paul Hirschbiel as candidate for Congress against Scott “Make me a Deal” Rigell. After looking at his giving history, I’m left thinking, is Paul Hirschbiel any better than the used car salesman?

    Paul Hirschbiel has given:

    $4,000 to George W. Bush

    $5,000 to Bob McDonnell

    $5,000 to Opportunity Virginia (Bob McDonnell’s PAC)

    $2,000 to Mitt Romney

    $2,950 Will Sessoms

    $1,500 to Frank Wagner

    $1,000 to Jeff McWaters

    $250 to Nick Rerras

    Say “No” to this wolf in sheep’s clothing!

    I bet the producer who didn’t push the delay button will be looking for work.

    talk about the kettle calling the pot black (no pun intended.)  Republicans just don’t know what to do with themselves and their thinly veiled bigotry.  Good riddance!

    It seems that whatever Obama does it is interpreted negatively. If he is quiet and compromising he is accused of being a wimp and a weak leader. When he gets tough he is criticized for being a pain-in-the-a$$. Basically, Obama is suffering from the “Being President while black.” syndrome.

    in the room…they were Joe and Mark.  Joe was so sly….”What are you doing?  I was kidding! Did we delay that?”  Yeah, sure, Joe.

    with calling someone a “dick” on air. It’s said on radio and tv all the time. That’s probably one of the reasons why it wasn’t delayed at all. You can also call someone a “pussy” or an “ass”. Now whether a network wants that from their pundits is a different story.
