On Thursday, Pat Buchanan used his column to announce that he has officially parted ways with MSNBC. He credited the more than 86,000 ColorOfChange members who flooded the network with emails and phone calls late last year. Buchanan writes:
A group called Color of Change, whose mission statement says that it "exists to strengthen Black America's political voice," claimed that my book espouses a "white supremacist ideology." Color of Change took particular umbrage at the title of Chapter 4, "The End of White America."
We gave MSNBC props last month when the network suspended Buchanan. On Thursday, ColorOfChange had reason to celebrate once again.
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.
Right now, ColorOfChange members are flooding MSNBC with phone calls, demanding that MSNBC break its silence and fire Pat Buchanan.More »
