Mark Ruffalo Slams ‘White Conservative Hiring Spree’ at... MSNBC

One flew over the cuckoo's nest.

Mark Ruffalo is not known for his deeply accurate political and social insights. He does, however, continue to prove that leftwing hysteria is a real problem.

Newsbusters notes that on Saturday, Ruffalo tweeted his support for a petition condemning NBC News and MSNBC for -- wait for it -- its alleged "white conservative hiring spree."

In his tweet, Ruffalo urged followers to “Sign the petition: Tell @MSNBC @NBCNews to stop the white conservative hiring spree.” He linked to a petition from CREDOaction.com demanding: “So why on earth is MSNBC pushing out Black and Brown voices and filling its network with hard-line extreme conservatives?...We need to let NBC executives know that there will be a sharp backlash if MSNBC becomes another platform for right-wing hate.”

A list featured of the alleged “hard-line extreme conservatives” who had been hired, included columnist George Will, political analyst and new MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace, conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, and former Fox News anchors Megyn Kelly and Greta Van Susteren.

On Tuesday night, Fox News’ The Five blasted Ruffalo's assertion. The video segment is provided above.
