MSNBC ANCHOR: PALIN‘S USE OF AMERICAN FLAG COULD BE ’BREACH OF FEDERAL LAW’

Martin Bashir, it seems, is not a fan of Sarah Palin. And during his MSNBC show and “Clear the Air” segment, he went looking for a way to roast the possible 2012 candidate who is now on a national bus tour. So what tool did he use to blast the woman even many of her detractors see as patriotic? The American flag.

According to Bashir, Palin could be breaking the law by displaying the American flag on her tour bus:

In fact, the whole thing could be in breach of a federal law because the United States Flag Code establishes important rules for the use and display of the stars and stripes, the flag of the United States. Under standards of respect and etiquette, it’s made clear that the flag of the United States should never be used for any advertising purpose whatsoever. Yet that’s precisely what Sarah Palin is doing. She’s using the flag of the United States for her own financial purposes. She drapes herself in the stars and stripes and makes millions of dollars in the process. This has got nothing to do with the presidency and everything to do with filling her pockets. And by raising her profile, she raises her income. It is as simple as that. So she was right when she said that hers is not a campaign bus. It‘s a cash bus and she’ll keep it rolling for as long as she can.

Bashir should then be investigating such companies as Greyhound which also display the US flag for profit-making.

Get a life, Bashir!

Olympians are still a national pride and technically they are representing a country.

But these news reporters they just dont have anything else better to report then doing such a crappy report.

Martin Bashir really sucks. I've watched bits of his show a few times, I can't handle any more. He's terrible.
Eh, most of MSNBC (exceptions being its defunct online bulletin-boards) sucks, and has since NLT 1999. Edited by Saddle Bronc

Why does that give them the right to disrespect the flag?

the design on the side of that bus is horrific. Makes Palin look like she does Vegas cabaret.

I'd like to see her do a Vegas cabaret.

I am not sure if you are referring to any particular incident, but most of them just run with their flag or hold on to their national flag.

Which in either way does not mean any disrespect to the flag, infact ppl who hold on to the flag are top 3 position and they want to show to world which country they belong to.
