This, then, is MSNBC's lineup: a man who suggests vacating bowel in the mouth of a prominent Republican woman; a man who regularly uses anti-gay slurs in public; a radio host, Ed Schultz, who has called another female radio host a "talk slut"; a race-baiting shakedown artist, Al Sharpton, who has referred to Jews as "diamond merchants," used the word "f*ggot" and slandered an innocent man for a rape that never took place; a host, Chris Matthews, who thinks that the words "we," "Chicago," and "black hole" are racist when used by Republicans; and a weekend host, Melissa Harris-Perry, who has worn tampon earrings to celebrate abortion.

And yet the advertisers on MSNBC are all major corporate sponsors -- as opposed to the advertisers on Fox News, which in large part are smaller businesses, despite the channel's high ratings.

Leftist garbage is saleable and acceptable in a world dominated by conservatives who refuse to fight back. The media portray Fox News and MSNBC as mirror images of one another, but that's clearly false -- the lineup of Fox News has nothing like the disgusting material regularly emanating from MSNBC. But Fox News is the channel regularly subjected to boycotts.

The answer for conservatives is to get active. Mutually assured destruction may be ugly, but it has prevented World War III for 70 years. The same holds true in the media. Those who sin must be called out. And those who sponsor those sinners must be made to pay a price by outraged Americans.
