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 ...

TRUTH in Journalism! EXCELLENT!!! Personally I'm tired of journalists meandering around the current issues. It's time we see someone call it like it is.

NOW, tell me how the USA is different from China in Government controlled news media. The only difference is in China, the government makes no bones about controlling their media. In the USA it's all to kiss the Administration's collective asses. Same difference.

Is there something wrong with the word "****"? I don't understand what all the fuss is about. The man's a ****--so why not call him a ****? Geez.

Screw Obama... he is a **** ! WOrhtless pos and his wife looks like a siverback gorilla... and he didnt even know his own daughters age. Embarrassing. He said he didnt have time to talk to republicans today, but he has time to play 4000 rounds of golf. He is a worthless piece of crap and hates america.

He got suspended for being the most confident and 'true to himself' person on that set, willing to say what he really thinks.

It wasn't even offensive. It's a common male name for goodness sake!

Utterly ridiculous and symbolic of power mongering and corruption in corporate media.

Do not become one of these decrepit corporate media cronies Harv!!! Let TMZ be a bastion of freeeeeeeedom!!!!

Whatever happened to freedom of speech? You can't have an opinion? I dont like Obama either. I am not racist before I get called that. I just do not agree with his policy.

We finally have a President that cares about the middle class in this country and he is a ****??? That alone should show the problem. Finally the wealthy will have to pay their fair share, while those of us that get up and go to work 5 days a week will only have to pay our fair share instead of theirs too. I have heard the republicans laughing at people dumb enough to work 5 days a week to pay THEIR taxes for them, and now more than ever we see the difference in the parties. WHO ARE THE IDIOTS NOW???
