CNN’s Carol Costello Learned Nothing From The Firing of Martin Bashir

October 23, 2014

Remember when Martin Bashir “resigned” from MSNBC for saying someone should defecate in Sarah Palin’s mouth?

CNN’s Carol Costello doesn’t…

CNN’s Carol Costello apologizes for Palin remarks

CNN’s Carol Costello apologized on Thursday for joking about a police recording of Bristol Palin.

“Over the past few days I have been roundly criticized for joking about a brawl involving the Palin family. In retrospect, I deserve such criticism and would like to apologize,” Costello said in a statement to POLITICO.

On Wednesday, before playing a tape in which Bristol Palin describes an alleged altercation at a party in Wasilla, Alaska, Costello said, “This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we’ve ever come across. Well, come across in a long time anyway.”

In the tape, Palin is heard describing what happened to her after she confronted someone she accused of pushing her sister.

To borrow one of Obama’s favorite phrases, let me be clear…

CNN’s Carol Costello thought it was just a laugh riot that Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol was physically assaulted by an unknown man at a party.

When she introduced the recording of the 911 call she actually said “Sit back and enjoy.”

Kudos to Matt Lewis of the Daily Caller for noting the hypocrisy.

CNN should fire Carol Costello for this.

If they don’t, they’ll be sending a clear message that it’s perfectly fine to laugh about an assault on Chelsea Clinton or one of Obama’s daughters.

The left can hate Sarah Palin all they want but when they’re caught using their influence in media to perpetuate violence against women they don’t like and laughing about it, they need to be held responsible for their actions.

The left’s suggestion that conservatives are waging a war on women is a steaming pile of horse shit.

Look no further than their own words for proof.

    Don’t know why CNN didn’t fire Carol she sure is not fair or balance but what do u except from a liberal person like Carol. Wonder if CNN would have acted different if it had been Chelsea if then maybe CNN would have done what they should have done in the first place. You are a poor excuse for news reporter and maybe you should look for a new job

    They won’t fire her.

    And, this does not send any message aka “… they’ll be sending a clear message that it’s perfectly fine to laugh about an assault on Chelsea Clinton or one of Obama’s daughters.”

    The reality of the situation is that the tolerant left thinks it is perfectly OK to say whatever they want about conservatives. “Beating up women is abhorrent! What? Oh, she is a conservative? She got what she deserved, and we should celebrate it.”

    Remember the fiasco when the made fun of Romney for having a black grandchild? Racism is OK if it is directed at a conservative.

    The liberal news media sees political ideology first. All other factors are secondary.
