    Blaming its own staff for an “appalling lack of judgment,” MSNBC apologized on Wednesday for reporting that a phrase used by Mitt Romney on the campaign stump was used in the past by the Ku Klux Klan.

    The brief report during the 11 a.m. hour on MSNBC triggered internal turmoil at the cable news network, which is linked to NBC News, the home of the “Today” show and “NBC Nightly News.” It also prompted a call from a Romney campaign representative to “alert them of the misreporting,” a campaign spokeswoman said in an email message.

    The MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews, who was not involved with the original report, read an apology to the Romney campaign during his 5 p.m. program, “Hardball.”

    The network, Mr. Matthews said, “reported on a blog item that compared a phrase used by the Romney campaign to one used by the K.K.K. way back in the 1920s. It was irresponsible and incendiary of us to do this, and it showed an appalling lack of judgment. We apologize, we really do, to the Romney campaign.”

  2. You know a network has jumped the shark when it goes so far that even Al Sharpton feels the need to apologize.

    In fairness Glenn Beck's comment was just as stupid but he got fired, and that was an him just being himself and shooting off his mouth. This was actually a planned piece by the clowns at MSNBC.

    Personal attacks are pretty much all the left has to work with.
    Issues, facts and reality? Not so much.

  5. I can tell you watch a lot of Faux News, who have been caught lying so much it is comical that they call themselves a News Channel.

    We will see on the second Wed of November 2012.

    Gingrich/Bachman 2012!

    Once again you've proven you can't tell and do not know shit.

    So you approve of indefinite detention of US citizens then? If you vote/support Obama you approve, simple as that.
