Since more than 86,000 ColorOfChange.org members called on MSNBC to fire Pat Buchanan there has been no sign of the right-wing correspondent on the airwaves. Last week, we delivered more than 275,000 petition signatures to MSNBC from ColorOfChange and CREDO Action members. But MSNBC refuses to say whether Buchanan will return, and they seem to think they can hide him away for a while and let this blow over.
MSNBC has continued to play dumb, keeping him off its broadcast in recent days but remaining silent about Buchanan's appearance on white supremacist radio and the extreme and hateful ideas in his new book. And they've refused to comment on whether he'll return to the air once his book tour draws to a close.
Right now, ColorOfChange members are flooding MSNBC with phone calls, demanding that MSNBC break its silence and fire Pat Buchanan.
For too long Pat Buchanan has passed off racism and bigotry as legitimate political commentary and MSNBC continues to provide him a platform to do so. People are tired of turning to a trusted news source and getting hatred instead of real analysis.
If enough of us call MSNBC, it will let them know that we're not going away and increase the pressure on them to act. You can add your voice here -- we'll give you the number and a short script you can use.
