MSNBC reportedly gave Alec Baldwin the boot for things he did not say on the air, but Martin Bashir still has his job after disgusting on-air comments about Sarah Palin for which Bashir subsequently apologized.

Baldwin defended MSNBC for keeping Bashir and basically said it could have happened to anybody:

Hey, stuff like this could have been said by any host! Except not really.

Baldwin also may have inadvertently discovered, albeit too late, a slogan for his former MSNBC program: “What’s the diff?”

Well, for starters, if Fox News went off the air as opposed to MSNBC, a lot more people would notice.
