MSNBC brings back Sam Seder after firing him over “alt-right” smear campaign

MSNBC President admits they fucked up.

Earlier this week, an utterly disingenuous campaign to get MSNBC contributor Sam Seder fired over a 2009 joke tweet about Roman Polanski/rape apologists proved successful. Inspired by Mike Cernovich, who’s headed up such deliberately misleading (and harmful) efforts as “PizzaGate” and “date rape is not a thing,” a bunch of “alt-right” trolls harangued the network to drop Seder for a now-deleted tweet that read “Don’t care re Polanski, but I hope if my daughter is ever raped it is by an older truly talented man w/a great sense of mise en scene.”

FFS....all they had to do is look at the source of the smear campaign to see it was bullshit....Cernovich is a right wing nutjob who fancies himself a Bannon character.

Good for them, but it should never have happened in the first place. Someone internally had to bring this tweet to whomever fired him - THAT'S the person they should fire as incompetent.

How embarrassing. The alt-right completely played them.

Glad they fixed their mistake, but still it is a lesson to all. You have to be careful with those trolls.
