Liberal commentator Sam Seder got his job back at MSNBC Thursday after being fired earlier this week.
Seder’s contract with MSNBC was severed following last week’s social media outrage over an old tweet he made about Roman Polanski.
“Don’t care re Polanski, but I hope if my daughter is ever raped it is by an older truly talented man w/ a great mise en scene,” Seder’s tweet from 2009 read.
That tweet, which Seder claims was meant to be an anti-Polanski joke, was unearthed by right-wing blogger Mike Cernovich and used as a battering ram against MSNBC. The network’s decision to sever ties with Seder soon served as a cause célèbre for liberals in media.
