MSNBC Forgets the Bleep Button, Again

Toure“The Cycle” didn’t end on a high note this afternoon when MSNBC forgot its bleep button during a segment on marijuana.

“Calm down motherf*ckers, you win by default,” comedian Dave Chappelle said during a clip Touré tossed to during his monologue about New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd‘s recent marijuana column (she wrote about her experience eating a caramel-chocolate bar with a few extra ingredients).

“The Cycle” co-host claimed Dowd’s column put “too much fear in the body politic,” adding she simply ignored her “weed tour guide” on how much was acceptable to consume.

Coming out of Chappelle’s F-bomb clip, Touré quickly wrapped and tossed to “Now with Alex Wagner.”

This isn’t the first time this has happened. Remember this?

>>Update: On her show, Alex Wagner apologized for the mistake: “In the previous hour MSNBC aired a piece of tape with offensive language. The network obviously did not intend for that language to air and MSNBC apologizes to our viewers.”
