"We the undersigned call upon NBC to suspend Tim Russert, Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough and Keith Olberman until the Presidential Election is over, and to replace them with anchors who are capable of stating facts and not reciting false, inappropriate and sexist remarks. Senator Clinton, former First Lady, is deserving of the highest respect afforded to statespersons."
The first part sounds good! But I wouldn't let those guys go just because of Hillary. Their real offenses are how the malign and misprepresent all things conservative (although Scarborough has returned to his conservative roots to some extent lately).

It seems like we find a "firing" demand link almost every day for someone or other. This one has a bit more justification to it than usual, but really, suspend almost their entire line-up? Someone's living in the land of Oz!

Wow. Anderson Cooper sure sounded less "impassioned" when reporting back then, didn't he?
