MSNBC apologized after a guest said, "nothing says ‘let’s go kill some Muslims’ like country music."
Ebony.com senior editor Jamilah Lemieux made the comment in regards to presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz's remarks on "CBS This Morning" that he switched from rock to country music after 9/11.
Cruz said country music's response to the tragedy "resonated" with him more so than other genres. Lemieux's comments on the MSNBC program "Now with Alex Wagner" were met with giggles from her fellow guests Michael Steele and Joan Walsh.To their credit, this time, unlike past incidents, MSNBC apologized promptly.
A few moments later, [the show's host] addressed the camera telling viewers, "We have a programming note. A few minutes ago on this program, a guest made a comment about country music that was not appropriate, and we want to be clear this network does not condone it."This is just one more example of the contempt in which our ruling elite hold those who live in fly-over country.
