Breaking: MSNBC/Time Editor calls Obama a dick on air, now suspended

Mark Halperin, the editor at large at Time and a contributor to MSNBC, called the President a “dick” on air.  On Joe Scarborough’s show, Morning Joe, Halperin made the off the cuff remark that he thought the President acted like a “dick” in his last press conference.  Halperin immediately apologize.

Joe Scarborough did try to stop the comments from going live.  TV always has a seven second lag time in case situations like this happen.  But the engineer on set didn’t know where the lag button was (idiot) and so both he and Mark Halperin are now fired.
