THIS is MSNBC.
Saturday’s Melissa Harris-Perry show actually began with the host asking, “Who wants to go to Colorado and get high for the New Year?” (video follows with commentary):
Now consider for a moment that Harris-Perry is not a comedian. She’s not the host of HBO’s Real Time.
She anchors a two-hour show airing twice a week on a so-called cable “news network.”
And this was how she began her show Saturday to tease a segment in the program’s second hour concerning Colorado’s new law that goes into effect January 1 whereby businesses will be able to sell recreational marijuana.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, THIS is MSNBC - now inviting people to go to Colorado and smoke pot.
