That MSNBC producer video was hysterical. Can you imagine the rage from the left and from folks like AD if that happened on FNC, yet we know there will be silence about this.
 
It just shows what MSNBC management thinks about females.

I'm not thrilled about the blogger at Chickaboomer calling Contessa Brewer "prim" in the context of this sort of gaffe.
 
It's now to the point in our culture that if someone even SEEMS to have a sense of propriety that precludes them from using angry profane language (even if they aren't wearing a mic or in a work setting), there's something off about THEM.

Wow - on the Gregory complaint, first the Author implies with the Obama comparison that NBC did not pick the most qualified person. Next, the author asks: "why not put on a woman or a person of color?" In other words, the most qualified person is not a woman or person of color. I believe its wrong to link qualifications with gender or race. If a person is qualified, race/gender not a factor.
 
It's wrong to not hire someone because of their ethnicity or gender. It's also wrong to hire someone because of their ethnicity or gender.
 
But isn't everyone a person of color? We all have a color to our skin. Can't we just drop these racial distinctions? Of course, doing so is politically incorrect.
 
These idiots at Huffington Post should just post a notice on their site "White People need not apply".

Sanity returns to the Thursday demo #'s. Don't even think about "totals" wipe out of Messnbc by Fox.
O'Reilly & H&C regain top spots for FoxNews. Say AD, what say you tonight, on second thought, forget about it.

I didn't know this until tonight, but Cablevision added four NBCU HD channels to their lineup. One of them was CNBC HD! Still no FBN! I posted about this on my blog:

Re: "Open-mic mayhem": I'm inclined to believe ICN. Should I?

I think it's a fake too.
 
Few supervisors nowadays would not know such behavior could be grounds for a hostile environment suit.
