    my only question is does anyone really expect better from MSNBC?
    Is the GOP offended because the family is bi-racial? Or because they're obviously too poor to eat better food than Cheerios?

    So something that happened a year ago that they did apologize for....banned for free speech.

    Why would you wait a year for an apology which did come? I don't understand why now.

    I can't imagine that some of you will be as sanguine if the DNC bans Fox.

    NOTHING about this is a violation or a disgrace to the first amendment. While the Republican Party has members who run for government, the party itself is not "the government". The party choosing to not do business with another business due to the actions of that business is not in any way a first amendment issue. At all.

    God, we just got done with this round of idiotic thought with the Duck Dynasty folks and people claiming their 1st amendment rights to free speech were infringed (they weren't)...now we're going to have to hear it on this too?

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

    As i said in another thread about this topic...

    It was stupid for MSNBC's twitter person to send out and I'm sure they'll get slapped on the wrist, but much like I've said to other things (such as when people were shockingly appalled that a place that proudly declares its christian heritage all over the place actually gave money to staunch christian organizatoins) I don't really see it as something to get worked up about because it's not surprising. Someone at MSNBC thought it was okay to make a jab at conservatives, they realized they'd get bad pub for it, and so they retracted it. Yawn.

    You get credit for being consistent, you did this when conservatives where making the stupid first amendment argument. So many people are so ignorant of the constitution. Usually the ones who claim to love it the most...

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

    It was strictly the MSNBC Twitter account that put out the offending tweet (and not an anchor)?

    The USA Today article only displays the removal and apology, not the original.

    The person or persons involved obviously overstepped their bounds. I'm sure the opinion is widely shared among the staff, but they should have at least muted it a great deal more.

    Agreed. It seems as though Reince Priebus is cutting off his nose to spite his face. Banning Republicans from appearing on MSNBC is pretty stupid, in my opinion. Perhaps the Republicans should bring Michael Steel back, I think he did a much better job than Priebus does.
