When MSNBC’s “Way Too Early” show decided to display its cultural sensitivity on Cinco De Mayo, it went full-on cringe-inducing. A sombrero-wearing producer paraded in front of the camera while shaking maracas and swilling tequila straight from the bottle. All of this above a chyron calling Cinco de Mayo a “Mexican Heritage Celebration.”

It didn’t take long for the outrage machine to go to work:

Eventually, MSNBC had to issue an apology:

Sincerity:

Now just imagine if Fox News anchors had done something similar. They’d have been tarred and feathered, fired, and exiled to a barren island in the middle of the Pacific. But as you well know, being liberal means you can get away with copy-and-paste excuses and a brief on-air apology no matter the offense.

Sincere or not, there’s something incredibly delicious about every MSNBC apology tour.
