MSNBC is giving a show to conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt and liberals are predictably freaking out. The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday explained that Hewitt’s first show will air on Saturday, June 24. Writer Jeremy Barr added, “In giving Hewitt his own show, MSNBC is sure to raise eyebrows, considering that the network has been doing well mostly on the strength of left-leaning opinion journalists like Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell.”
The move will "raise eyebrows?" That’s an understatement. Liberals on Twitter are already attacking the cable network for hiring a “fascist.” It was just last week that Avengers movie star Mark Ruffalo complained, “Sign the petition: Tell @MSNBC @NBCNews to stop the white conservative hiring spree.”
Now, as if MSNBC wasn’t liberal enough, the cable network is also giving left-wing anchor Thomas Roberts two hours on Saturday and Sunday night. For many liberals, that doesn't excuse hiring Hewitt. Here are a few examples:

How long before the unhinged liberals at MSNBC and those who watch the network demand Hewitt's removal?
