MSNBC President Phil Griffin apologized Thursday for what he called an "offensive" network tweet, which suggested that conservatives may “hate” a Cheerios Super Bowl ad featuring a racially mixed family.
Griffin said the person responsible for the tweet was fired.
"The tweet last night was outrageous and unacceptable,” Griffin said in a written statement. “We immediately acknowledged that it was offensive and wrong, apologized, and deleted it. We have dismissed the person responsible for the tweet.”
The original tweet, which was posted Wednesday night, said: "Maybe the rightwing will hate it, but everyone else will go awww: the adorable new #Cheerios ad w/ biracial family.” The tweet included a link to an article about the commercial.

Respective news interns spend their summer vacations standing in sweltering, swamp-like DC heat, waiting for Supreme Court decisions to be handed down. This year, though, one intern in particular drew more attention than others: Dan Stein, an editor of the Yale Daily News, became a viral sensation after numerous media outlets showed him racing from inside the Court's press room to hand deliver the Court's decision (and dissent) to his company's awaiting correspondent, Pete Williams. Stein was later interviewed on NBC's "Today" and told the morning show team it was "an honor to be part of the history."
Irony can be a funny thing, especially when a collegiate program that is supposedly teaching students to edit their articles can't even seem to edit its own diplomas. According to Joe Carpenter, Radford’s chief communications officer, "1,481 undergraduate and graduate diplomas from fall 2012 and spring 2013 were misspelled."
Michael Graczyk, an Associated Press reporter who has covered Texas executions since 1984, can't remember how many executions he has witnessed, and to be honest, he doesn't really care to anyway. He is, however, able to recall very specific memories - from one inmate singing "Silent Night" as the lethal injection coursed through his veins, to another inmate's "pretty brown eyes" popping open as he died.
