Disrespectful: MSNBC’s Martin Bashir apologizes to viewers for Charles Krauthammer’s appearance

Martin BashirIt’s hard to imagine how MSNBC could stoop any lower, but they never cease to amaze. MSNBC anchor Martin Bashir showed a clip of Charles Krauthammer that he then apologized afterwards to the viewers for having shown them Krauthammer’s face.

Noel Sheppard put it best:

The childish unprofessionalism on display at MSNBC is becoming breathtaking.

Anchor Martin Bashir on Wednesday jokingly apologized to young viewers who might have been “frightened by” Charles Krauthammer’s face in a video clip that was aired on his show.

While speaking about the election with GQ’s Ana Marie Cox and the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart, Bashir asked, “Do Republicans understand what has happened? Let’s listen to the great Charles Krauthammer.”

This evoked laughter from Cox and Capehart.

After playing a Fox News video clip of Krauthammer commenting about Tuesday’s election results, Bashir said, “Now I need to apologize to any young viewers who may have been frightened by that face.”

This again evoked laughter from Cox.

Honestly, is this what MSNBC considers journalism today?

MSNBC always talks about how they are the network for those who are accepting of everyone. But their actions speak louder than their words. And Martin Bashir has made offensive remarks before that he has had to apologize for. They have proven time and again to be biased, unprofessional and offensive. It’s no surprise that most people choose to watch any other news network than MSNBC.

    “as is expected by MSNBC”

    Bashir is repulsive; he was recognized as such in the UK and now he’s verified it here. Why would MSNBC keep such a foul beast on the payroll?

  • REC member

    Bashir? d-bag from the UK. Ana Marie Cox is a fraud. She was paid for a book she never wrote. Have you ever seen Wonkette? Total garbage.

  • Kelly

    Martin Bashir you are a thug.

    It’s a good thing nobody saw it…well, except for the two dozen regular MSNBC viewers.

    This is notorious of what journalist have become (there is very few exceptions). They slant things to meet their own criteria. They dont research their stories and now they criticize people on national television. I will never watch any MSNBC again!I Also planning on nixing quite a few other stations that profilerated only things they wanted to portray for own personal agenda regarding the candidates for president of the United States.
