MSNBC panelists attacked for being too respectful of pro-life guest

In case you missed it — and it aired on MSNBC on a Saturday morning, so hundreds of millions did — Americans United for Life President Charmaine Yoest appeared on “Up with Steve Kornacki” this morning to join in a panel on “The Return of the War on Women.” Yoest was there to provide balance for the host and the three other panelists, including Ana Marie Cox.

What? Respect for a pro-life guest? Do go on.

Tough crowd? Actually, it wasn’t tough enough for Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher, who called out Cox for letting Yoest get away with loaded and offensive terms like “pro-life.”

Sounds brutal. Let’s watch.

Who else wants to pile on? How about Lizz Winstead, co-founder of A Is For… and co-creator of “The Daily Show.” Here is just a selection of tweets.

What do you say, Ms. Yoest?

On a final note, the same person who suggested putting all the “unwanted” babies on Yoest’s doorstop retweeted this one hour later.
