President Obama Was "Kind of a Dick," Time Editor Says
Mark Halperin, Time Magazine's senior political analyst, was on MSNBC's Morning Joe earlier today and said President Obama was "kind of a dick" for his demeanor in yesterday's press conference. That political analysis came during a riff on seven-second delays, a censorship device that the show clearly doesn't implement. He offered an "absolute" and "heartfelt" apology, both on air and on Twitter shortly after his comments. Still, that was a dick move, Halperin. [Politico]
