Martin Bashir Returns to ‘Cable News’ for 3 Whole Seconds

Remember Martin Bashir?

He parted ways with MSNBC in late 2013 after controversy erupted over his suggesting someone should defecate in Sarah Palin‘s mouth to teach her a lesson about slavery analogies. And he hasn’t been heard from since.

Until this week’s episode of Madame Secretary on CBS, that is.

Conservative media watchdog Newsbusters spotted Bashir in a 3-second cameo as, yep, a fictional cable news host grilling a fictional guest about something related to the show:

You can hear Bashir ask on the March 1 prime time program: “The micro-loans program should actually be canceled?” That’s a reference to the episode’s main plot about the fall-out caused by a State Department official embezzling from the program championed by the Secretary of State.

Surprisingly, when the fictional guest spoke, she was not in the middle of saying “You’re absolutely right, Martin.”
