Here’s one reason why MSNBC’s ratings continue to tank: Its staff seems to think it’s a joke when cops are almost killed.
The lefties’ favorite network tweeted a video Friday of a Savannah, Ga., police officer being dragged down the street by a driver he’d pulled over for questioning. It was captured by the officer’s body cam.
Along with the video, the MSNBC staffer wrote, “Does it count as a police chase if you drag the cop along for the ride?”
MSNBC replaced the actual sounds of the officer being dragged and then hitting the pavement when he was finally released with circus music. Hilarious, huh?
This was picked up Saturday by Kristinn Taylor, writing for The Gateway Pundit, who took a screenshot of the tweet.
It’s a good thing Taylor took the screenshot, because shortly after she called the network out, MSNBC deleted the tweet and offered an apology.
A video tweeted from @msnbc Friday evening has been removed. The material was inappropriate. It should not have been posted and we’re sorry.

It was a case of too little, too late, and social media users let the network know in no uncertain terms.
@msnbc Most of the lies you post are inappropriate

@msnbc how many cops have died this month in the line of duty? It’s police week and you thought this was a good idea? Again, not good enough

@msnbc you dont even address which video. You dont even apologize to the officer. Your apology was worse than the joke. Clowns.

@msnbc BULLSHIT! You really think any apology after a tweet like that would be believed? You guys simply think it’s ok to kill cops, right?
