They're playing to their hate-filled, stupid audience, so I don't think they give anything they say "a moment's thought."
Yes, and no. They are also playing to people who never watch the network to get them worked up so they make some nasty remarks in retaliation. Then their sister networks, like NBC, will take the retaliation remark and spin the original event to make conservatives look mean spirited. As far as apologies, for years I worked with psychopathic/ unbonded teens and never once was an apology said with any intent other than to get themselves out of a jam. The same is true of the psychopathic hosts of MSNBC; their "apologies" are totally meaningless.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
