RE: MSNBC President Phil Griffin’s Apology
Chairman Priebus recently spoke by phone with MSNBC President Phil Griffin.
Mr. Griffin apologized for the network’s offensive tweet from Wednesday night. As outlined in the letter below, his network has taken corrective action.
We appreciate Mr. Griffin’s admission that their comment was demeaning and disgusting, and the Chairman accepted his apology. We will aggressively monitor the network to see whether their pattern of unacceptable behavior actually changes.
We don’t expect their liberal bias to change, but we will call them out when political commentary devolves into personal and belittling attacks.
Thank you to everyone who joined in our efforts today.
Below is the letter from Phil Griffin, it reads:
“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.”
