MSNBC Suspends Analyst Over Obama Comment
Washington Post – Cable news network MSNBC indefinitely suspended senior political analyst Mark Halperin after he called President Obama “kind of a [vulgarism for male organ]” on the network’s “Morning Joe” show.
“I thought he [president Obama] was kind of a [vulgarism] yesterday,” Halperin said.
Minutes after making the crack, Halperin was apologizing on air. He is also editor at large at Time magazine and co-author of “Game Change,” a book about John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.
