"sam seder msnbc termination controversy"

Definition #1 for "sam seder msnbc termination controversy"

Sam Seder MSNBC Termination Controversy refers to the firing of MSNBC contributor Sam Seder over a tweet he made in satire of long-standing Roman Polanski sexual assault allegations in 2009. MSNBC faced criticism after the tweet was interpreted by right-wing media personality Mike Cernovich as a rape joke, claiming it was a media double standard that Seder was allowed to contribute to MSNBC with these views. MSNBC soon cut ties with Seder but rehired him after backlash from people who saw MSNBC as misreading the tweet in bad faith.
