MSNBC, which by they way actually stands for Misogynists Spewing Nonsense and Buffoonery Channel, have found a line over which even they won’t dare cross. For over a decade and most recently with increasing venom, the uber left network’s business model was to disparage in the most unhinged terms, conservatives of all types and particularly conservative women. In the case of Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman, it was a two-fer as the puerile minds at that network spewed their taunts like pimply drunk frat boys hurling at their first college party.
Martin Bashir, soon to be fitted for the same suit with the long arms that tie at the back once worn by the deposed Keith Olbermann, was forced to retract and apologize for a particularly vile comment against Sarah Palin recently. We won’t repeat the comment here, but here’s some free advice for his wife or girlfriend or partner. Let’s just say that if a flock of seagulls flies over head, keep mouths closed. His suggestion for Palin was so vile, even Taliban viewers tweeted their disgust. Still, he did not receive any sanction from the network.
As for the distinguished actor Alec Baldwin, whose ratings for his new show on that network are so abysmal that it should be named 30 viewers, his big crime was…to heave a gay slur. This is the guy who goes all Rob Ford on his daughter and TV reporters threatening violence to them but is only censored when he publicly utters a gay epithet. As is the case with many actors, his ability to put together cogent thoughts and have intelligent discourse disappears if there is no script to follow. So instead of the articulate characters he portrays, his vocabulary is revealed as somewhat more street. For this vile transgression, he was suspended for two weeks from the show. Insult the women all you want, but not the girly men.
So now, there’s another word to be censored from common use, henceforth only to be referred to as the ‘f’ word. That of course joins the ‘n’ word, the ‘c’ word but not to be confused with the other ‘f’ word. As time goes on, this reference may even be too offensive and people will have to resort to hand gestures in place of those letters.
Like rap videos, MSNBC is devoid of any real content, it has become the Miley Cyrus of the news and information business. It’s shock TV. It’s the same tribal beat of misogynist and violent views over and over again masquerading as free speech and liberal thought. Interestingly, two of these newly offensive letters are found on MSNBC’s call sign. If we wind up getting the other letters banned, we may have to call it ***** , or the asterisk network. Of course, for ease of discussion, it will simply be referred to as the ass network.
