  • NEW YORK (AP) — MSNBC was not saying Tuesday whether disciplinary action is planned against show host Martin Bashir, who has apologized for “deeply offensive” comments he made about Sarah Palin.

    In a commentary on Friday, Bashir called the former Alaska governor “America’s resident dunce” and a “world class idiot,” and suggested she be punished for remarks about slavery by having someone defecate in her mouth.

    On Monday, Bashir said he deeply regretted what he said.

    “I wanted to take this opportunity to say sorry to Mrs. Palin and offer an unreserved apology to her friends and family, our viewers and anyone else who might have heard what I said,” said Bashir, who hosts an hour-long commentary program on the cable network’s afternoon schedule.

    Bashir’s commentary came on the same day that MSNBC suspended Alec Baldwin’s weekly talk show for two episodes after the actor was videotaped using an anti-gay slur against a photographer during a New York street encounter.
