About two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir went on an unbelievable rant against Sarah Palin. He said that someone should “s**t and p**s” in her mouth.
After taking an extra long Thanksgiving, Bashir just announced that he is officially resigning from his position at MSNBC.
Here is Bashir’s official statement, where he announced that he is resigning.
‘After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday.
Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments.
I deeply regret what was said, will endeavor to work hard at making constructive contributions in the future and will always have a deep appreciation for our viewers – who are the smartest, most compassionate and discerning of all television audiences. I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributors, all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast.’
Do you think Bashir actually resigned — or do you think there was some immense pressure put on him to do so from executives at the network?
