Good Riddance: MSNBC OUSTS CONTRIBUTOR PAT BUCHANAN OVER RACIST BOOK


MSNBC OUSTS CONTRIBUTOR PAT BUCHANAN OVER RACIST BOOK | Conservative contributor Pat Buchanan’s tenure at MSNBC may have finally come to an end. AP reports that MSNBC president Phil Griffin has indicated the controversial former presidential candidate will not be allowed back on the network after the release of his latest book. “Suicide of a Superpower” has been roundly condemned for its racially-charged content, including chapters titled “The End of White America” and “The Death of Christian America.” Griffin said, “When Pat was on his book tour, because of the content of the book, I didn’t think it should be part of the national dialogue much less part of the dialogue on MSNBC.” As ThinkProgress has reported, Buchanan has a long history of bigotry and has made many offensive statements while in the network’s employ. 275,000 people signed a petition calling on MSNBC to fire him.

1. I wonder if Joe Scarbrow cares.

Oh, he will say he does, but I don't think he will.

4. Why fire him now?

It's not like he said anything different in his book that he hasnt said while on air? Why the phony balony now? MSNBC if they had any balls would leave him on. A bigot before, a bigot now. What's changed?

5. That link doesn't match the text from your post.

The title of the article says "MSNBC chief: No decision on Pat Buchanan's return"

Do you have a different link for this story?
