EXCLUSIVE: Halperin Reinstated at MSNBC
Will return to network this week
By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 8/2/2011 1:03:53 PM
Halperin was suspended after he called President Obama a "dick" on the Morning Joe program June 30. He thought the remark was being bleeped out when he made it.
Halperin made the comment in reference to Obama's demeanor in a news conference. Halperin apologized immediately, but was suspended indefinetly by the network, which turned out to be about a month. Halperin had called his suspension "totally appropriate."
Halperin is editor-at-large and senior political analyst for TIME and before that was a 20-year vet at ABC news, serving as political director from 1997 to 2007.
Dan Rather Investigated GWBush in the Texas air guard,....fired from 60 mins. Bill Maher, who I personally cant stand, called GWBush a coward..booted off TV. Mark Halprin calls Obama a D#&k gets put on timeout then gets a raise. America we know everyone doesn't like BO for particular reasons but the fact that Halprin is still on T.V. afterward is testiomony to the kind of leader BO is therefore Obama +1 MSNBC -1 . Bloomberg is better anyway

Who cares no one has really respected any president for about three decades. Obama is a puppet working for an elite of money/power sucking assholes who want to create a one world government and control citizens as well. He realy is irrelevant to anything who cares that goes to any president in our future as well.

As a black person, I do think he is a one term president. He has not done anything for this country or black people in general. I don't think people should call him names and the n- word. That is out of line that makes you sound racist and uneducated. I do believe he had a chance as the first black president to come and represent and he disappointed me, even though I didn't vote for him, because I knew what kind of senator he was in Chicago and ran a very nasty campaign. I just wish my people would educate themselves on political issues before they vote.

He should be fired for his blatant disrespect for our President. It kills me that people lose their senses and act so low class and unpatriotic because we now have a black President. He deserves the same respect and consideration as any other previous President. The true dick was George Bush but he was never disrespected the way people carry on with President Obama.
