    If he was being interviewed elsewhere, it'd be cool?

    Yes. Cool, no. But not a reason to fire him or ask for his resignation. But MSNBC has a habit of firing, and or letting people quit only to bring them back.

    It's only a First Amendment issue in the sense that "his First Amendment rights weren't violated."
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    If any Fox news person said homosexuality morphed into bestiality and they'd never seen a black person discriminated against, they'd be in trouble.

    If I went to work and told a customer he was a dumb ass, when I got fired would that be infringing on my 1A rights?
