URGENT: Martin Bashir
Who: Martin Bashir
What: The Huffington Post (22 million unique visitors per month)
When: Published Friday, February 18, 2011
Why: There may be time to again alert the executives of Comcast / NBC Universal / MSNBC that they’re making a huge mistake by giving Bashir a slot on MSNBC. They need to “pay or play” Bashir, take the loss and move on. (By definition, a pay or play clause means that the person being hired—typically an actor, director or television personality—is guaranteed payment regardless of whether or not they actually work.)
Please leave a comment on The Huffington Post blog. There are already slightly over 100 negative comments. Once the blog is more thoroughly blanketed with comments, we’ll provide email addresses for Comcast, NBC Universal and MSNBC executives to direct their attention to the buzz at The Huffington Post.
We have ten days to make a difference. Let’s see if we can pull another “Discovery Channel” victory from the jaws of Bashir’s tabloid trashy mouth.
