Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said Thursday that he will bar any RNC staff from appearing on MSNBC after the network sent out an incendiary tweet about conservatives Wednesday night.________________
Priebus said in a memo that no RNC staff or surrogates would appear on the network until MSNBC President Phil Griffin apologized. In the memo, he asked Republican officials and surrogates to follow his lead. Priebus sent a letter to Griffin informing him of his request.
MSNBC once again showed its true colors with this tweet:
Here's the commercial MSNBC declares the "rightwing will hate":
Michelle Malkin led a protest on social media to counter the extremely offensive statement from someone at MSNBC.
The result was a lovely photo gallery of beautiful, biracial "right wing" families.
I am so sick of Leftists mischaracterizing conservatives as old white guys, angry men, haters.
MSNBC/NBC is a disgrace.
The tweet was deleted and an apology posted by MSNBC.
Earlier, this account tweeted an offensive line about the new Cheerios ad. We deeply regret it. It does not reflect the position of msnbc.— msnbc (@msnbc) January 30, 2014
We are deleting the earlier offensive tweet. It does not reflect msnbc's position and we apologize.— msnbc (@msnbc) January 30, 2014
The original tweet EXACTLY reflects MSNBC's position.
The damage control apology was required, but I don't buy it at all.
MSNBC = Hate
