On Martin Bashir's poorly rated MSNBC show, he introduced Mitt Romney's bus tour today. The segment started off as normal, with Bashir introducing the show and the date. It was all downhill from there.
MSNBC then cut to a video of Romney, in which they made the video intentionally grainy, then repeatedly zoomed in on him speaking. They quoted Romney with the usual soundbite, then showed his bus driving around.
All of a sudden, Bashir asks, "What could possibly go wrong?" At that moment, the video of Romney's bus cuts to a bus exploding while people can be heard screaming in pain. MSNBC then proceeds to show several clips of buses engulfed in flames as well as a man shooting a cow for some reason.
Then, "Come on Get Happy" blares, implying that Mr. Romney dying in a horrible, flaming death would make the American people ecstatic. You can watch the video below:t

Doesn't matter if you are vehemently against Romney and adore President ..... This is just ridiculosly unprofessional and if mere comments illicit a "visit" from the Secret Service, why wouldn't this?

I just don't get this. No matter what your political persuasion, this is extremely unprofessional. Who at MSNBC possibly thought, "Hey, I've got a great idea! Let's imply that Romney's bus will explode while playing a theme song from the 70s?"

You know I often wonder what it would take to bring the people of opposing political views together, I am so happy to see that we can come together on certain issues.
