Martin Bashir resigns from MSNBC

Maybe he'll end up at the new CNN.  Martin Bashir didn't deserve the honor of quitting, he should have been summarily fired for his disgusting rant.

Via The Blaze:
TV host Martin Bashir announced Wednesday that he is resigning from MSNBC, according to an email obtained by Mediaite.

Bashir’s announcement comes weeks after he caused an uproar for suggesting someone defecate in former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin’s mouth.

“After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday,” Bashir said in the email. “Upon further reflection, and after meeting with the president of MSNBC, I have tendered my resignation. It is my sincere hope that all of my colleagues, at this special network, will be allowed to focus on the issues that matter without the distraction of myself or my ill-judged comments.
That rant was not journalism.  It was angry liberal histrionics that has no place in political discourse.  Martin Bashir should have been fired, period.  That MSNBC did not have the inclination to do so speaks volumes.  Had someone from Fox said that sort of thing about Hillary Clinton, imagine the uproar it would have caused.  And that person would have been dismissed from the network before the uproar had even started.
