MSNBC Apologizes For Nigger Innis Misspelling
Niger Innis, Republican consultant, conservative strategist, National Spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality, was being interviewed by Gregg Jarrett on MSNBC when his name was slightly misspelled beneath his image. Instead of reading Niger Innis it read…well…Nigger Innis.
The producers of the show only caught the misspelling only after it was broadcast on-air.
Innis was on to make excuses for former Enron Chairman Kenneth Lay's decision not to testify before a Senate committee.
Gregg Jarrett, who was interviewing Innis, mentioned the mistake on-air after the commercial break.
"Let me offer a profuse apology from this network," Jarrett told Innis. "We accidentally misspelled your name in the last hour and we are terribly sorry."
Innis appeared to take the mistake in a fashion typical of your stereotypical African-American Republican consultant.
"Oh, God, I thought you guys thought I was a rapper or something," Uncle Tom Innis told Jarrett with a perfect impersonation of Willie Best , the buck-eyed, forever-terrified 'Coon' made famous in so many Bob Hope comedies. "Media bias continues - just kidding. It's not the first time it's happened, but hopefully it's the last."
