Martin Bashir Apologizes to Young Viewers Frightened By Charles Krauthammer’s Face On Screen

The childish unprofessionalism on display at MSNBC is becoming breathtaking.

Martin Bashir on Wednesday jokingly apologized to young viewers that might have been frightened by Charles Krauthammer's face in a video clip he aired (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):

While speaking about the election with GQ’s Ana Marie Cox and the Washington Post’s Jonathan Capehart, Bashir asked, “Do Republicans understand what has happened? Let’s listen to the great Charles Krauthammer.”

This evoked laughter from Cox and Capehart.

After playing a Fox News video clip of Krauthammer commenting about the election results Tuesday, Bashir said, “Now I need to apologize to any young viewers who may have been frightened by that face.”

This again evoked laughter from Cox.

Honestly, is this what MSNBC considers journalism today?

Besides, should someone with a mug like this be ridiculing anyone else's appearance?
