If we hadn’t seen it for ourselves, we might not have believed it. But this seriously happened:
Martin Bashir's original comment about Sarah Palin that led to his resignation from MSNBC.
Martin Bashir resigned from MSNBC today. The Martin Bashir resignation was a consequence of one of his ‘Clear The Air’ segments. In that segment he was less than kind to Sarah Palin.
Martin Bashir resigned from MSNBC today, after making rude (but, in my opinion, well-deserved) comments about Sarah Palin in one of his ‘Clear The Air’ segments. In that segment he was less than kind to Sarah Palin.
So, we’re all sad to hear that Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC. Whatever will he do with himself?
Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC following weeks of controversy over his incendiary comments about Sarah Palin, he announced in an email posted by Mediaite on Wednesday.
Martin Bashir, the MSNBC host who has come under fire for the controversial remarks he made about Sarah Palin, is "on vacation" and will not host his namesake afternoon program on Monday, POLITICO has learned.
Like most MSNBC hosts, Martin Bashir has been hypersensitive to slights aimed at President Obama, real or imagined.
Baltimore Sun TV critic David Zurawik angrily criticized MSNBC and NBC News — along with network stalwarts Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd — for failing not only to punish host Martin Bashir for comments he made about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin recently, but also for not even speaking about the issue.
Joe Scarborough called out his fellow MSNBC host Martin Bashir over Bashir's controversial comments about Sarah Palin.
It's no secret that Sarah Palin is mighty steamed at MSNBC and Martin Bashir over his despicable remarks about the abusive treatment he imagines for her.
Slander of Sarah Palin echoes mistreatment of Michael Jackson.
After suspending Alec Baldwin's show for anti-gay comments he made off the air, MSNBC has not taken any action against host Martin Bashir for his vile comments made on air on Nov. 15 in which he suggested that someone should defecate and urinate in former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's mouth.
When I first saw a headline about what Martin Bashir said, I figured it must be exaggerated. No responsible cable news host would call for defecating on a public figure. That’s just beyond the pale, right?

MSNBC’s Martin Bashir on Friday closed his show with likely the most disgraceful rant against former Alaska governor Sarah Palin you’ve ever heard.
In an article for MediaBistro's TVNewser blog on Monday, Gail Shister ripped into NBC News for the lack of punishment of MSNBC host Martin Bashir after his vicious and disgusting attack on Sarah Palin: "It's no surprise that NBC tries to distance itself publicly from its corporate sibling. In this case, however, its silence has been deafening. How low does the bar have to go before Tom Brokaw speaks up, as he has in the past? More to the point, why haven't any NBC women taken a stand?"
In this must-watch clip, Martin Bashir compares the petty and exaggerated “offenses” in Trayvon’s past to the actual and very real offenses committed by a young President W. Bush, providing a powerful dichotomy on the current state of racial relations in America.

The hype surrounding the recent revelations about National Security Agency data collection has become so overblown that even Flavor Flav is starting to believe it, but thankfully, there are still voices of reason in what’s left of our shattered republic
June 5, 2013: Rhymes With Right: MSNBC Talking-POS Martin Bashir Announces That Racism No Longer Exists In America!
That is the only reasonable interpretation of the latest declaration from undesirable alien featured by the anti-American news network
Wikipedia: IRS Controversy On June 5, 2013, Bashir labelled critics of the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative political organizations as racist, suggesting that because Barack Obama is black, the investigation is an extension of Lee Atwater's Southern Strategy and part of a "war on the black man in the White House."
June 5, 2013: Daily Caller: MSNBC’s Martin Bashir: ‘IRS’ is the new ‘n***er’
According to MSNBC host Martin Bashir, Republican criticisms of the Internal Revenue Service are little more than thinly-veiled racist attacks on President Obama.
June 5, 2013: MediaIte: Martin Bashir Broadcasts Misleading Edit Of Lee Atwater Quote To Portray GOP As Racist
On Wednesday night, MSNBC’s Martin Bashir made the ludicrous assertion that the Republican Party as a whole is reaching for coded ways to attack President Barack Obama’s race by expressing concerns over the news that half the American public was singled out for harassment by the ostensibly neutral revenue collecting arm of the federal government.
Aside from CurrentTV Al Jazeera Muslim Brotherhood television, perhaps there is no cable television news network that injects as many lies into its broadcasts as does MSNBC. Perhaps no better example can be found in its handling of the Trayvon Martin case.
MSNBC’s Martin Bashir is known for sometimes launching into anti-Republican tirades.
It just doesn’t get more absurd than this. Here is MSNBC’s Martin Bashir calling out Mitt Romney for ‘lies’ that he supposedly told, and using his Mormon faith to repudiate him.
Sometimes an example of “entrenched predisposition” in the media presents itself, and when you know what to look for the reality is staggering.
Reason TV's Kennedy on Friday had a delicious smackdown of HBO's Bill Maher and MSNBC's Martin Bashir. When Maher and Bashir voiced predictable scorn for Governor Jan Brewer pointing a finger at Barack Obama earlier in the week, Real Time panelist Kennedy correctly observed, "If this were a Democratic governor and a Republican president doing the same thing, the entire panel on your show would be like, 'You go girl.' It is so hypocritical
I don’t know what else to say. This interview is devastating. It exposes the inconsistency of Bell’s argument. Bell wants to be a universalist without taking the name, and Bashir won’t let him off by a facile appeal to “paradox.” Watch above or read the transcript below
At 3 PM ET yesterday, Martin Bashir debuted his eponymous MSNBC program.
Martin Bashir (born 19 January 1963) is a British journalist, who was a political commentator for MSNBC, hosting Martin Bashir, and a correspondent for NBC's Dateline NBC. He was previously an anchor for ABC's Nightline after initially gaining prominence on British television with his BBC interview with Diana, Princess of Wales, and then his series of interviews with Pop musician Michael Jackson on ITV. On 4 December 2013, Bashir resigned from his position at MSNBC after he made "ill-judged comments" about the former Governor of Alaska and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin
Bashir started work as a journalist in 1986. He worked for the BBC until 1999 on programmes including Songs of Praise, Public Eye and Panorama and then he joined ITV, working on special documentary programmes and features for Tonight with Trevor McDonald. Bashir came to wide prominence in 1995 when he interviewed (for the BBC's Panorama programme) Diana, Princess of Wales about her failed marriage to the Prince of Wales. Since then he has conducted interviews with, among others, Louise Woodward, the five suspects in the Stephen Lawrence case, Michael Barrymore, Jeffrey Archer, Major Charles Ingram, and Joanne Lees.
Bashir was employed by ABC and co-anchored their current affairs show Nightline. Along with Cynthia McFadden and Terry Moran, he took over Nightline from Ted Koppel in 2005. In August 2010 Bashir left ABC for MSNBC where he serves as a political commentator for MSNBC, as well as an occasional substitute host for Lawrence O'Donnell. Bashir had a role as himself in the satirical comedy film Mike Bassett: England Manager.
