Earlier this month, MSNBC host Martin Bashir had blasted Palin after a speech in Iowa, where she had said that borrowing money from China was “going to be like slavery when that note is due.”
Bashir read remarks from the diary from notorious slaveholder Thomas Thistlewood, who allegedly forced slaves to eat human feces. He said that if anyone was deserving of such punishment, it was Palin.
The MSNBC host later apologized, insisting that he had “brought shame upon my friends and colleagues at this network.”
In a Sunday interview, Wallace told Palin she had made “fairly unobjectionable remarks” by comparing federal debt to slavery.
