    Why is this even a big deal? I don't get it....biracial family in a commercial and people get their panties in a wad? Then a clearly partisan source says something clearly partisan about it...

    What happened to the righteous anger over the Duck Dynasty BS? Fine, First Amendment doesn't apply but where are your principles when you're against one guy getting "punished" for his views, and then go and "punish" a whole network for it?

    My point was about his decision making, which has nothing to do about the TV channels.

    Since these are your exact words:

    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

    ...I'm pretty sure I was right in my first comment.

    Who was claiming this as a free speech issue? I though the GOP just didn't like what MSNBC said about them.

    my only question is does anyone really expect better from MSNBC?
    I went to read the article to see who tweeted that, since "MSNBC" is not a person and cannot tweet anything. It had to be a person. Probably a staffer who staffs the twitter account.

    The article has been updated to state that MSNBC found and fired the person who tweeted that, and printed MSNBC President's official policy, which states:

    The tweet last night was outrageous and unacceptable. We immediately acknowledged that it was offensive and wrong, apologized and deleted it. We have dismissed the person responsible for the tweet. I personally apologize to Mr. Priebus and to everyone offended. At MSNBC, we believe in passionate, strong debate about the issues, and we invite voices from all sides to participate. That will never change.
    Much ado about nothing, I think. The tweeter was referring to a number of online references by rightwingers to the former biracial Cheerios ad. Still, I see no point to referencing the prior references. Just a juvenile jab that one doesn't expect to see at a national news station.

    I expect as much out of MSNBC as I expect out of FOX.

    Anyone that watches MSNBC hates Republicans, anyhow.
