    The tweet was pretty tame by today's vitriolic standards.

    But it was pretty dim for the guy to post it if his name associated/traced back to a national news network.


    Appropriate chastisement. (The universe is once again in balance....)

    ...People still watch MSNBC? It's literally worse than FOX in terms of the amount of opinionated bull**** that they spew. Calling either of them "news" is laughable.

    There's probably a higher percentage of Republican men who are in a healthy hetrosexual relationship with women than the Democrats can claim.

    Most men who I know who don't like girls aren't Republicans.

    There was a study out awhile back. Compared to MSNBC, FOX actually is fairer and more balanced. Personally, I haven't watched the news on either of them, or CNN, for a year and a half. I don't believe anything of value was lost.

    I'd expect more from a "news" network. MSNBC can sometimes be just as awful as Fox News.

    Almost every story on Fox is pro Right and anti left, and I do watch it a lot. That is fine, except they are not honest about it. And millions of Fauxites take it as Gospel.

    Re: Republican Party bans MSNBC over 'offensive' tweet'

    I am trying to find out if "the Republican Party" is a private or public entity. It cannot be a government entity -right?

    So it can ban MSNBC as there no 1st Amendment requirements to carry their members political speech out to any 'press' (cable channel)....
