In the wake of the MSNBC's Cheerio-gate, its president - Phil Griffin - issued an apology to "everyone who was offended." The network saw itself boycotted by the RNC earlier today when a tweet from their official account last night smeared conservatives for their yet to be revealed faux-rage over a new Cheerios ad for the Super Bowl featuring a biracial family. Griffin said today:
The tweet last night was outrageous and unacceptable. We immediately acknowledged 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. Signed, Phil Griffin.
While I'm glad Griffin apologized, labeling MSNBC as a network that welcomes "passionate, strong debate about the issues" is beyond laughable. Here is a nice list from our friends at IJ Review that shows this network is only about the issues that keep their liberal viewers well sated on the stories bashing conservatives.
