Quick one.

Criticism continues to pour in for MSNBC’s Martin Bashir over his disgraceful comments about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin last Friday.

Appearing on Fox News’s America’s Newsroom Tuesday, media analyst Howard Kurtz called them “sad, pathetic, and disgusting” saying that Bashir is a “practitioner” of “the politics of vitriol and destruction”

Kurtz wondered aloud to Martha MacCallum about the lack of response from the executives at MSNBC. Why would they respond? This is precisely what they are paying Bashir for. A mediocre intellect at best and possessing no on-camera charm at all, Bashir is pretty much the MSNBC vitriol chihuahua. The network’s only hope for ratings is to hurl vile slander at Republicans and hope their viewers are out of jail that night to see/hear it.
