MSNBC's Hardball decided once again that their racist in chief Pat Buchanan has any business weighing in on racism. Buchanan does his best here to attempt to excuse Andrew Breitbart by using the NAACP's reaction to his edited tape of Shirley Sherrod and of course Buchanan thinks this is not a story about Breitbart and the fact that no one in the media should be paying any attention to him. He thinks this is a story about politics and the White House and says they "threw Rosa Parks under the bus" out of fear and panic about Fox News running a story on Sherrod and says "that's the story."

Sorry Pat, but that's only part of the story. The bigger story is that our media in this country gives the likes of Andrew Breitbart any credence at all and that Fox is happy to play the race baiting game just as you are far too often when you're allowed on the air.

If MSNBC doesn't want to make themselves look as bad as Fox when it comes to race relations they need to quit bringing on Pat Buchanan to talk about matters relating to racism given his past remarks on the issue as we've documented here at Crooks and Liars.
