Martin Bashir, the MSNBC host who has come under fire for the controversial remarks he made about Sarah Palin, is "on vacation" and will not host his namesake afternoon program on Monday, POLITICO has learned.
Sources at the network said Bashir had been temporarily suspended from the network following graphic remarks he made last month about the former governor from Alaska. In that segment, Bashir suggested that Palin should be forced to endure slavery like conditions, including the consumption of feces.
MSNBC spokesperson Lauren Skowronski told a different story: "He’s still out on vacation," she wrote in an email. Asked multiple times when Bashir would return from vacation, Skowronski did not respond.
Way to go Sarah.
His remarks were completely unprofessional and should be unacceptable to any network and he should have been fired. But since he works for MSNBC, he's probably on a fully company paid for vacation in the Carribean until this right-wing haters tirade blows over.
With or without pay?
anyone that watches msnbc in the first place needs a lobotomy. They are the most hateful and misinforming news cast in the world and no one with even 1/2 a brain would believe them. OH" I forgot about the Obama lovers.
Don't you mean anyone who watches MSNBC already has a lobotomy?
Make it a nice long one, unpaid! Oh, and Martin, Go back where you came from you are an unprincipled pig and your English accent embarrasses me, I am a real Englishman, we just do not behave that way, as, of course you would know had you been raised with any class whatsoever. Get back on the street media whore!
This "vacation" should be permanent, and it should be in moslemland with a 100 foot high wall around it to keep the likes of him inside. And, oh, let the moslems pay him.
He is disgusting. The fact that a lady had to demand his apology is beyond comprehension. Our press is out of control and we of the Tea Party need to be behind Sarah and demand that there is no more bias in news reporting. If we do not - then she is on the battlefront by herself.....and she is probably wondering why.
DO NOT - DO NOT - DO NOT WATCH NBC, CBS, ABC OR PBS news!!! Watch ONLY Fox News. That is the ONLY WAY we can fight this propaganda machine!!! It is the advertisement bucks that will allow coverage of events like Bengazhi BEFORE the elections. We were ruined as a nation by our American press and Sarah is leading the battle. Lets get behind her and quit making her subject to the ridicule of the American press because she had to do this for us!!!!!
I have not watched those stupid creeps in years, precisely because of the problems they cause and the lies they continue to tell. I was sick to death of them insulting my country and my intelligence. Even Fox News doesn't cut it anymore, in my view. They give too much credence to the enemy, even using their words and language to describe things and events. My home page is now CNS News.
Given the principle of psychotherapy that a man's speech is the direct route to his subconscious and a good indicator of the topography of his inner emotional and mental health, I presume the only obvious inference, that Bashir is receiving treatment in a mental institution.
