MSNBC Tweets “Funny” Anti-Cop Video of Police Officer Being Dragged by Criminal

I’m not sure what happened, how it happened, or who made it happen, but this past Friday, for a few minutes, MSNBC had a disgusting Tweet posted that they seemed to think was “funny.” The tweet was of a video of a police officer being dragged by a car after he’d stopped them for a traffic violation. Behind the disturbing video someone had added comical music, as if the video were something out of the Benny Hill show… but it wasn’t funny and the video was all too real.

A few hours later, MSNBC had deleted the Tweet and replaced it with an apology.

 

 

That apology wasn’t good enough for some web surfers

 

 

What do you think? Is MSNBC’s apology good enough? Was it a simple mistake? Or is the Twittersphere right about MSNBC not deserving our forgiveness?
