Hostile work environment? TheBlaze’s S.E. Cupp chastised by fellow MSNBC host during live broadcast

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Well, Piers Morgan isn’t the only Englishman with backwards logic on you Second Amendment rights. Yesterday, while wrapping up Tuesday’s The Cycle, TheBlaze TV’s S.E. Cupp was met by some unfriendly fire from MSNBC host Martin Bashir.

S.E. had just wrapped up her “Per S.E.” segment, in which she highlighted how the media is shaping the language Americans use to discuss firearms to “scare and confuse the public to advance gun control.” S.E. went over some of the most misused terms in the gun debate, including “rapid fire,” “assault weapons,” and “high capacity ammunition.”

“So lets forgo the arbitrary, ambiguous fear mongering terms and get real specific about what we actually mean by gun control,” she said. “It may be politically effective to rail against ‘rapid fire, high capacity assault weapons,’ but it doesn’t actually mean anything. So if we are serious about solving gun crime, we should at least start by getting the terms right.”

After wrapping up, S.E. stated, “It’s all yours Martin,” but instead of a clear transition from The Cycle to Martin Bashir Live, Bashir just couldn’t help but inject his opinions into the points S.E. had just made.

TheBlaze.com described the confrontation like this:

“Just a quick question,” Bashir said with a moderately mocking tone. “How many rounds did Jared Loughner fire off before he was tackled?”

“What’s your point, Martin?” a visibly and audibly annoyed Cupp replied.

“How many rounds had he fired off?” Bashir asked again.

“I’m not sure. I don’t remember,” she answered.

“Thirty one,” Bashir shot back. “He was actually tackled because he was reloading.” Loughner reportedly used a 30-round extended magazine in the Tucson shooting.

Frustrated with her colleague’s antagonistic behavior, Cupp argued that “we should be trying to stop crazy people and criminals…from shooting one person.”

“That’s an awful moment. She’s handing the show off to her Martin’s show, and he sandbags her,” Stu said after hearing the clip. “He brings up one piece of evidence out of all of these shootings.  Other shooters have shot their victims with high capacity.  And he does it in way for an insider broadcasting prospective of trying to sandbag a host on your own station.  This guy is despicable.”

“I don’t know how S.E. does it,” Glenn responded. “Day after day after day. I don’t know how some of our hosts on “The Blaze” do it.”

Like Robyn told Glenn, “They stick to their guns.”

    S.E. Cupp, you were set up by the guy, pure and simple. Consider leaving MSNBC when you can before the administration brands you an enemy of the state for daring to speak your mind.

    S.E. Cupp why do work for these morons.

    She should have asked Martin how many times did Loughner suggest he would do something harmful and NOTHING was done to get this guy off the streets?  He ransacked the congress woman’s office, wrote disturbing items while in college, etc.  Martin you are a bozo!

    Bashir, like Morgan, is a pompous ass and he proves it over and over.  Not that it bothers him.

    This was a challenge from Bashir.  Cupp is often adept a dealing with challenges.  Most of us can provide a stable  when we respond on a blog, but a few people like her are usually capable of responding quickly.  Bashir’s question was still a fair challenge.  Being prepared and knowledgeable allows people to deal with challenges like this, and timing is just another complication added to the challenge.  We can either cry unfair, and point our fingers or,  remember that our goal is to inform.  Even though I don’t agree with blaming the guns instead of the people,  I can understand why people are worked up about it.  People may not listen to our arguments,  but calling them crazy, or rude, excludes the possibility of convincing anyone.  Let’s not insult people who are confused.  Some of us may even support altering gun control, to be more severe against criminals, and nuts.  One thing I’m sure of,We don’t trust this administration to do it properly.

    I am curious, if a left wing dolt commits suicide in the woods and there is no one there to hear it, does it make a sound?

     I’m surprised that any Conservative would attend the LSM as a guest.  They’re only invited to become debased and humiliated by the host, although some have given them a ‘run for their money.’  Martin Bashir is a muslim and an outright enemy of America.  He should be deported, along with all the rest of them!

    How many bullets did Timothy James McVeigh use to kill  kill 168 people and injure over 800??? The problem is not how many bullets a gun holds It’s a broken mental health system that isn’t catching these psychos.

    so do you agree with doctors reporting people with metal health issues and the goverment telling tose people to remove the guns from there home.

  • RK

    Mr. Beck, since Mr. Obama did sign “24″ Executive Orders having to do with gun control, will you please start an impeachment process? I’ve written to my senators and representatives in MT., and I urge each person to do the same; asking them to support the impeachment of a president who is obviously breaking the law by stomping on our Constitutional Rights. This is wrong! My doctor should have no right to know whether or not I own a gun, among the other “ideas” he presented sounds like more tax-payer monies being spent on regulations that shouldn’t even be.

    The current law says they are not allowed to have guns already you moron.

You just nod your head and say that’s right but your ignoring how they are treating there guest and other host who don’t agree with them. just watch to night and watch how many times they talk over peopel and call the names. It happens everynight. you can also look up clips of it happening on youtube just seach bill o’reilly or shawn hannity. “your full of shit how about providing some examples you troll” why did you make that statement show me where in any of my statements did i disrespect or try to insult you i just ask for the same respect. why can’t we disagree with each other with respect the name calling is immature.

    that’s not what i asked i asked do you agree with doctors reporting people with mental health issues, Doctors don’t have to do that now. Moron again what’s with the name callin i just asked you a question that you didn’t seem to comprehend. But the name calling is immature i have not called you a name why do you feel the need to call me one.

  • http://twitter.com/JWMajic J. W. Appling

     Doctors are required by law to report them already.
    Look up the definition of moron you fit it.

     When have they sandbagged another host that was the question.

  • http://twitter.com/JWMajic J. W. Appling

    I don’t agree with them I’m not a lemming I can think for myself.
     I just love how  you judge everyone who disagrees with you.All your doing is hurting your point by showing your prejudice. Its vilifying everyone you disagree with thats preventing any compromise from being made you can’t poison the well and expect a healthy community.

    No there not that is actully one of Obama excutive orders that he is implementing. Doctors did not have to report mental health issue under the doctor patient confidentiality.

    Example: Bill o’reilly had the son of one of the victoms of 9/11 on his show when the guest started to disagree with bill he started to yell and talk over him. Not letting him talk and called him a facetious. because he felt there was no reason to go into Iraq. there’s alot more examples on youtube. just search hannity or O’reilly or you can also search foxnew.

     If they pose a threat they are required by law to report them it is on the books I know this because I had a friend committed because she had a break down caused by an abusive boyfriend. Your ignorant and need to do some research.

  • http://twitter.com/JWMajic J. W. Appling

     When have they sandbagged another host that was what you accused them of? Please show some examples of them sandbagging another host instead of them shutting down somebody who’s spinning and mindless parroting talking points.
     I mean real solid examples not general statements that are not backed up by facts or proof.
     Your nothing more than a cowardly day two troll who choses dead threads to snipe at people who have views opposed to your own.

    What’s more important, your First Amendment Rights or your Second Amendment Rights?

    What can you say that will get you  “off the streets?”

  • Anonymous

    The second amendment protects your first amendment right.  Let me ask it this way:  What is someone is heavily medicated with psychotropic drugs, like Loughner was, and nothing is done about him?  This guy suffered from schizophrenia and he obviously was not right.  IMO these people do not belong in the general population.  All of these shooters had this quality.  If these 3 loonies were locked up those people would be alive today.  People who deserve are people who are NOT a menace to society.   I would argue people on those drugs ARE and have not earned the right to liberty.  They are not right in the head!  Use some common sense and ask yourself if that person is not rational, you know making obscure noises in a community college and scaring the hell out of other students, then what should we do about it?   “Oh they deserve their first amendment rights to spot off like a lunatic.  I disagree!  Re open the mental hospitals NOW!

    It is even more reason for people to carry concealed weapons.  Because people with this disease can snap anytime.  Why not protect our children from these lunatics?  It is obvious our nation is not interested in taking care of the root problem!

     If the are a threat a Doctor can order an evaluation you are wrong again I’ve gone through this with my friend who was committed. You can think what ever you want I was there I’ve actually seen how the system works. some doctors are afraid of being sued and don’t do their job.

     Cite a specific example instead of telling me to look it up back it up with so facts.
