If MSNBC ever wonders why they struggle in the ratings department so much, it’s because there’s already one Comedy Central.

A month ago (via Right Scoop):

null

Yesterday: Man, those Republicans sure don’t like biracial families, do they?

null

After backlash, MSNBC deleted the tweet and edited the linked article which originally specifically named “conservatives” as potential offendees of a Cheerios ad featuring a biracial couple. And they did it all as quietly as possible.

In response, Michelle started a #MyRightWingBiracialFamily hashtag on Twitter and it exploded.

Richard Wolff, MSNBC’s executive editor, said the Cheerio tweet was “dumb” and “offensive” and “that’s not who we are at MSNBC.” Oh my–even the executive editor of MSNBC doesn’t watch MSNBC? It’s worse than I thought.

If you missed any of this particular bunch of foot-in-mouth projection, just wait because they’ll do something similar again very soon.
