Title: MSNBC Chief Says He Hasn’t Decided Whether Commentator Pat Buchanan Will Return To Network

PASADENA, Calif. — MSNBC’s top executive said Saturday that he hasn’t decided whether conservative commentator and author Pat Buchanan will be allowed back on the network.

Buchanan, a former GOP presidential candidate and a paid MSNBC contributor, hasn’t been on the network since the publication of his book “Suicide of a Superpower” last October. The book has chapters titled “The End of White America” and “The Death of Christian America” and its author argues that the United States is in the “Indian summer of our civilization.”

“When Pat was on his book tour, because of the content of the book, I didn’t think it should be part of the national dialogue much less part of the dialogue on MSNBC,” said MSNBC President Phil Griffin. The minority advocacy group Color of Change has circulated a petition urging MSNBC to fire Buchanan.

Buchanan did appear for an interview about his book in October on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” where host Sean Hannity said, “welcome out of exile.”

Griffin would not discuss the length of Buchanan’s contract with MSNBC or whether it would be renewed.

The conservative firebrand has seemed increasingly out of place on a network that has emphasized a liberal viewpoint on many of its programs in recent years. Last August, Buchanan went on “Morning Joe” to explain that he wasn’t trying to slur President Barack Obama by referring to him as “your boy” during an on-air discussion with talk show host Al Sharpton.

Meanwhile, “Morning Joe” hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski acknowledged at a news conference Saturday that they considered offers from other networks in recent months, including CBS, which is launching a new morning show on Monday. Former “Morning Joe” producer Chris Licht is producing the new CBS show.

Scarborough said they concluded that they couldn’t duplicate their show on broadcast television, specifically the lengthy interviews.

“We knew from the beginning that we had a great home at MSNBC that Phil had set up for us,” Scarborough said. The three-hour weekday morning show begins at 6 a.m.

Griffin said MSNBC plans to tweak rivals Sunday with a newspaper ad that argues “there are many imitators, but there’s only one ‘Morning Joe.’” It’s timed to appear the day before CBS’ show premieres and a week after CNN began its own new morning show with Soledad O’Brien.

Oh yeah...

The only reason that MSNBC had Pat Buchanan on contract was because he opposed Bush's wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

They hoped that Buchanan could be a conservative finger in the Fox News, neo-con GOP's eye and increase their ratings.

Now that Bush is gone and those wars are running down, they jettisoned him.

I disagree with Buchanan a lot, especially on economics. But I agree with him wholeheartedly on foreign policy. Overall, I like the guy.

I wish Pat Buchanan all the best.

I like Pat as well as he is a very likable guy in person. Loved him on CNN's Crossfire with Tom Braden.

I do perfer his writings vs. his spoken TV commentary however. Sometimes it seems as though he were 2 different people.

I doubt that, given his foreign policy views, FOX will offer him a gig.

I'm certain that Pat will do just fine with or without a TV spot.

Never swear "allegiance" to anything other than the 'right to change your mind'!

My guess is that even though he's off the air, MSNBC is still paying him and still enforcing a non-compete agreement to keep him away from the competitors.

" My guess is that even though he's off the air, MSNBC is still paying him and still enforcing a non-compete agreement to keep him away from the competitors. "

I believe that is most likely a safe bet. Pat will probably use the time to write another book.

I always liked Pat, and wish him well.

1. Pat who? irrelevant since the '90s

2. If Pat exemplifies what it means to be "conservative" - I want no part of it.

3. No one watches MSNBC - so who cares.

You can think whatever you want to. But if you want to convince others you have to produce proof.

I disagree with you.

Pat Buchanan is an outstanding American.

A simple google search for Mr. Buchanan's policy statements and positions will give anyone a very deep understanding of Pat's attitudes toward black people, brown people, gay people, non-christians and women.

Some may agree with his positions..... I certainly do not.

Did you read his book?

No he just tells it the way it is. He is a good man and a Great American. He should have been president. If he was. We wouldn't have NAFTA and GATT sellouts. There would be no war in Iraq or Afghanistan. The Budget may be balanced or not but closer then now. The illegal hordes of invaders wouldn't be here in as great a number. And best of all. We never would have heard the name Obama.

Your definition says you are.

Not my definition - came from dictionary.com.

Now, try to understand thee words:

"1.stubborn and complete intolerance of any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one's own."

I'll narrow it down - "any creed, belief, or opinion that differs from one's own."

"ANY" - as in ANY opinions that differ from one's own.

Its not even close.

and specifically I can tolerate all opinions, including your's and Pat's.

But my tolerance of his opinions do not make him any less of a bigot, or any more relevant.

Mr. Stone - we certainly agree on these points - and I agree with these positions.

But the reason Mr. Buchanan was NOT elected president is IMHO, because of his bigotry.

and think about this one - If Mr. pat had actually been elected in 2000.......we would have never suffered the pain of the bush administration either..........

I'll challenge that assertion.....

1. It can not be ridiculous because it is true, and because you cannot refute it's truth.

2. of course it is undocumented.... it is, as I stated, my opinion.
