GOOD RIDDANCE: Martin Bashir Resigns From MSNBC Over Palin Comments

Martin Bashir has resigned as host of his MSNBC show over comments he made about Sarah Palin.

Bashir made the announcement Wednesday in an email first reported by Mediaite.

He has been under pressure since his Nov. 15 broadcast, when he called the former Alaska governor a “world-class idiot” and suggested she receive the same disgusting treatment given to slaves as described in a slaveholder’s diary.

Bashir was responding to Palin’s comparison of America’s debt to China to slavery.Bashir’s original statement was made on a Friday, and he issued an apology the following Monday, on Nov. 18. But criticism continued, especially after fellow MSNBC host Alec Baldwin was suspended, then fired, after using an anti-gay slur against photographers who approached his wife and baby.

Critics, including Baldwin himself, noted that Bashir made his statement on the air and clearly was reading from a prepared script, not off-the-cuff and in anger on a public street, as Baldwin had done.
