Bashir Reported To Have Resigned From MSNBC!!!

This is truly the worse news I have read in a few years. I rank this resignation (termination no doubt) higher than the sad news about the non-functional ACA Website. The website can and will become fully operational. Replacing Bashir at MSNBC will be fumbled miserably. The hiring of Alec Baldwin was a clear example of a mistaken decision to hire and bundle a show around a personality.  We are anxious to see who replaces Bashir.

The network should give serious consideration to hiring Joy-Ann Reid  She appears to be the most politically aware and gifted regrading political discourse and opining. 

Martin Bashir Resigns From MSNBC After Horrible Sarah Palin Comment

MSNBC host Martin Bashir resigned from the network Wednesday, two weeks after making lewd comments about former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

Here is his full statement, provided by MSNBC:
“After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the President of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments. 
I deeply regret what was said, will endeavour to work hard at making constructive contributions in the future and will always have a deep appreciation for our viewers — who are the smartest, most compassionate and discerning of all television audiences. I would also wish to express deepest gratitude to my immediate colleagues, and our contributors, all of whom have given so much of themselves to our broadcast.
