Apparently, they desperately wish to cling to their also ran status. 

MSNBC President Phil Griffin Apologizes To Reince Priebus Over Tweet, Fires Employee

MSNBC tweeted Wednesday night, “Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family.” …….

Griffin, perhaps sensing that the tweet was turning into a major problem, offered a lengthy apology on Thursday afternoon, including a personal apology to Priebus:

The tweet last night was outrageous and unacceptable. We immediately acknowledged that it was offensive and wrong, apologized, and deleted it. We have dismissed the person responsible for the tweet.

I personally apologize to Mr. Priebus and to everyone offended. At MSNBC we believe in passionate, strong debate about the issues and we invite voices from all sides to participate. That will never change.

In a signal of just how much the political fracas had mushroomed, the RNC later said that Griffin and Priebus spoke on the phone, and that Priebus has accepted Griffin’s apology:

Well, now the establishment GOP and the LSM can play nice again …….  awwww!!!

    This won’t stop. They’ve discovered a critical new revenue-generator. Apologies have no overhead costs.

      If they really dismissed someone, then it cost that person his or her job. It may be an acceptable loss or just a fabrication to appease the critics.

    Its always worthwhile to think, ok what would have happened if someone from the right had said it.

    Fury, outrage. There would be calls for his instant sacking. His house would be picketed with ferals and raaacist signs.

    So off I went to look at other blogs and what do I see but this story:

    Gore: Reduce African women’s fertility & global warming

    Can you possibly imagine the nuclear fire that would break out if a righty said African women should breed less…?
