MSNBC Analyst SUSPENDED for Calling Obama 'D*ck'

6/30/2011 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Time" editor and MSNBC analyst Mark Halperin has been suspended indefinitely by the network after he called President Barack Obama a "d*ck" on live television ... and the footage is hilarious.

Mark dropped the d-bomb earlier today on the "Morning Joe" broadcast -- claiming he thought Obama was "kind of a d*ck yesterday" at the President's White House news conference.

Mark has since profusely apologized for the comment, but MSNBC followed through with the suspension anyway -- claiming his "comments this morning were completely inappropriate and unacceptable."

So we gotta ask ...

I guess speaking the truth on MSNBC will get you suspended.

They encouraged him to be candid, said they could *bleep* anything inappropriate, and then they fire him?

The worst part is how they react "shocked!" to a common term. Imagine if he'd said *******.

Since when can't commentators COMMENT on the news with their opinion?! There is a difference between hard news and commentary MSNBC nitwits.

Its refreshing to see truth in journalism FOR ONCE especially from MSNBC. This is a perfect example of how skewed journalism is nowadays. MSNBC is not a news agency anyway....its run by a leftest culture and is not biased in reporting the news. They might as well move to Russia or Iran where they would be welcome with open arms by both regimes.

They set him up. They told him to say what he wants...and then acted shocked afterwards.

Those two people on the table he was talking to wanted to hear what he thought how come they weren't disciplined? What he said was no biggie, just because some people might be offended by that word..ugh.

He only got suspended for saying it about, Obama. If it was about a Republican/Conservative he woulda been praised.

The other anchors egg him on and he finally says what he feels and he gets suspended. What a bunch of bull s#!&! In the immortal words of George Carlin... "Here's another horrifying example, or aspect of American culture... The continued pussification of the American male!"
