"The tweet was outrageous and unacceptable," says MSNBC president Phil Griffin.

How about firing the managers that create an environment and expectation, that these comments are okay?

No.  It's exactly what all of you at that wretched network think of conservatives.

Stop lying.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

Bingo. The tweet is the symptom of the disease. It is the rule, not the exception.
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

Exactly.   And the pattern is clear.  They say things like this all the time.

Obviously they think that we're all stupid enough to fall for this tripe.

Just stop apologizing for what you really meant to say, Phil.   It compounds the problem.

My guess is no one got fired. Another guess is Rachel Maddow tweeted it.

She certainly sets the atmosphere over there so they tweeted it because (whoever tweeted it) thought it was what the powers at NBC approved of.
