    Showing the photo in that context, that segment, was poor judgment. so without reservation or qualification, I apologize to the Romney family. Adults who enter into public life, implicitly consent to having less privacy, but their families, especially their children, should not be treated callously or thoughtlessly. My intention was not malicious, but I broke the ground rule that families are off-limits. For that I am sorry.

BuzzFeed’s Dorsey Shaw notes that Mitt Romney is scheduled to appear on Fox News Sunday, and suggests that he will respond to Harris-Perry at that time. I’d be surprised, though, if the normally-gracious Romney has anything more to say about it than an acceptance of this apology today. This is the kind of moment most people would do best to rise above, rather than slug it out with their families in the crossfire.

She made a sincere apology or her job was on the line this time. Instead of focusing on the child as Mitt's grandchild, how about the parents? Mitt has no control over who his children adopt. Did they expect him to keep the baby out of the picture?

Only MSNBC can turn a non story into a scandal, and ignore the real stories that are scandals.

Was the tearful apology real, or merely acting?

She can take her apology and stuff it. A change in her ways will be the real apology. Since she works for MSNBC/WhiteHouse she won't change her ways in the least.

She knows.
 
She knows that GE is on the verge of folding all in, and calling for a new deck of cards and possibly a new dealer. She did make a mistake, and I personally believe her apology. But, she is also worried about her future.

The whole GE/NBC/Comcast thing was a gamble from the beginning and they lost --- BIG TIME!  360,000 viewers for the top show?  That's not even public access ratings.  Well, about that ball park.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Hard to say, I suppose.  It came off as sincere the one time I watched it but the original episode remains the problem.  Should never have happened.
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Melissa Harris-Perry Panelist Levels Racism Charge Against Republicans Mere Minutes After Host’s Apology

http://therightscoop.com/melissa-harris-perry-panelist-levels-racism-charge-against-republicans-mere-minutes-after-hosts-apology/

Quote
The panelists are discussing populist sentiment in America as part of a discussion about the election of Bill de Blasio in NYC. The discussion spans a commercial break, and in the second half, Katrina Vanden Heuvel is addressing the idea that Republican populism has been successful in stirring up emotion and movement based on a message of lower taxes and limited government. Vanden Heuvel essentially says that yes, the right has been successful, but because racist.

    “But I do think the right-wing populism of the tea party not only became so on obsessed with an anti-government meme, but let’s be honest. there is a race … racism threaded through the right-wing populism, I mean which is not unusual to American right-wing populism, that has not allowed for coalitions that could be built on behalf of working people in this country against the most powerful interests.”

In that context, her apology is a total fraud.

Black people are the most racist people on the planet, if you ask me. And they are that way because they have eyes and are intelligent. Ever hear of an Asian mugging downtown or crapping in an ally?
