On Friday’s show, Bashir responded to comments Palin made linking America’s debt to slavery, calling her a “dunce” and suggesting Palin might be a prime candidate for the same treatment slaves received from a plantation owner named Thomas Thistewood: being urinated and defecated on.It took Bashir three days to apologize--or be forced to apologize. One wonders what punishment he would dish out to the Apostle Paul, not to mention Jesus, for their analogies to slavery.
Here's an interview with Martin Bashir in which he explains this interview and his commitment to truth telling (see bottom of post for audio links to interview).
UPDATE: Ten Mile Island comments that Bashir often has troubles of his own in getting source data right. This is underlined by Bashir's inability to correctly read Sarah Palin's latest facebook posting. Instead of linking "Sugar Daddy" to the American taxpayer, which Palin does, Bashir misrepresents her position as one of calling Barack Obama a "Sugar Daddy". And in the latest dust up, without even verifying source data, Bashir pooh-poohs the very possibility that Barack Obama could have walked out of the debt talks. Poor Martin Bashir seems to many more low points in truth telling to every high point.
