He Finally Snapped.
If you watched Pat Buchanan lose his mind on Rachel Maddow's show last night, you know he went too far with the loud, racist, sexist tirade against Sonia Sotomayor.
We really don't have to take this.
Please write to the head of NBC News at firstname.lastname@example.org and voice your complaints, then copy and paste your letter in my comments section.
Here's what I wrote to him. Feel free to borrow liberally:
As a devoted viewer of all of MSNBC's nightly news/political programs, I have to express my outrage and dismay at Buchanan's sexist, racist rant on the July 16 episode of The Rachel Maddow Show.
He was more offensive and disrespectful than I've ever seen him before, and that's saying something.
While everyone is entitled to their opinion-- no matter how warped it is-- keeping Buchanan on as an analyst (and on staff) makes it appear that MSNBC is actually endorsing or approving of his radical right opinions.
Between Buchanan and Ron Christie, I'm beginning to feel like I'm watching Fox News.
I really enjoy watching Chris Matthews, Keith Olbermann, Rachel Maddow and even Ed Schultz, so I won't threaten a boycott, but I'll tell you what I will do.
Next time I see Buchanan or Christie on as guests on any of these shows, I'll change it to CNN until I'm certain their segments are done. If CNN happens to have on compelling content, I may well watch the whole show.
I'm done listening to Buchanan and Christie. If I wanted to watch Fox News, I'd do so.
The courtesy of a reply is requested.
