CNN’s Carol Costello Learned Nothing From The Firing of Martin Bashir
Remember when Martin Bashir “resigned” from MSNBC for saying someone should defecate in Sarah Palin’s mouth?
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.”
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.
