    Color of Change claims another scalp: MSNBC indefinitely suspends Pat Buchanan.


    The liberal activist group Color of Change announced Tuesday evening that it received confirmation from MSNBC that the left-leaning cable news network has indefinitely suspended conservative commentator Pat Buchanan.

    The group’s leaders launched a campaign in October aiming to have Buchanan, who they dubbed a “white supremacist,” removed from MSNBC programming.

    “Amazing news!” a Color of Change email alert announced on Tuesday evening. “Pat Buchanan and his white supremacist ideology will no longer be on TV.”

    “MSNBC President Phil Griffin just confirmed that Buchanan is suspended indefinitely,” said the group, “because some of his ideas aren’t ‘appropriate for national dialogue on MSNBC.’”

    On Monday evening, Buchanan denied that he had been suspended, saying on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, “I don’t know anything about that. I hope to get back full up here in January, but I’ve been out for a couple of months.” Instead, he cited health issues for his absence.

    Color of Change has launched several successful campaigns to remove conservative commentators from mainstream media platforms. The group was successful in encouraging many advertisers to desert Glenn Beck’s Fox News program, after Beck said that President Obama had “a deep seated hatred for white people.”

    The group similarly succeeded in a campaign to have conservative website mogul Andrew Breitbart banned from the front page of The Huffington Post, after Breitbart called the organization’s co-founder Van Jones a “cop killer-supporting, racist, demagogic freak. And a commie. And an eco-fraudster.”

    I like Pat Buchanan...
    He will be missed...
    MSNBC like people who don't add much to the conversation it seems.
    Just watch Morning Joe on MSNBC sometime.
    The over under on Mika the co host for uttering the deep and profound...

    "Yeh" during the broadcast when she wants to chime in has been going up these days.
    I will bet she averages 40-50 a show.
