Double Standard: F-Bomb MSNBC's O'Donnell Show, No Suspension


During a film montage tribute to late director Sidney Lumet, the obscenity “f**king” was broadcast on MSNBC. There have been no repercussions. This is in stark contrast to the immediate and indefinite suspension of MSNBC analyst Mark Halperin today after he said President Obama was “kind of a dick” at yesterday’s press conference at the White House.

Could it be that Halperin was not suspended because of the obscenity itself, but because of the target of the obscenity?
