So, MSNBC does know how to apologize for hateful language

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Good thing, because they're going to have to get used to it since their so-called "talent" have become nothing but right wing puppets. And kudos to everyone from the blogosphere who responded to the homophobic tirade last week from Chris Matthews and Imus. It got a response. Rush and Molloy at the NY Daily News got the scoop

Gay-rights activists are blasting Don Imus and sidekick Bernard McGuirk as gay-bashers, Last week, when fellow MSNBC talker Chris Matthews asked Imus if he'd seen the cowboy love story "Brokeback Mountain," Imus sneered, "Why would I want to see that?" He added that McGuirk had his own name for the movie — a crude candy reference we'll skip. The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation called the "slurs" a "juvenile display of homophobia." MSNBC has apologized for the banter. …
I'd like to see said apology from MSNBC...and Imus and Matthews each still owe a specific apology.

When MSNBC's hosts continually adopt the hate-filled language, lies and talking points of the radical right wing, MSNBC will learn that's not good for business.
