Mark Halperin’s calling the president “a dick” on MSNBC yesterday made news on a couple other networks.

CNN reported his utterance, apology and suspension at least six times yesterday including a piece from Jeanne Moos during “The Situation Room.” MSNBC (beyond the original story) reported it once, around 10:50am yesterday; Fox News reported the story twice yesterday and Fox Business reported it this morning on Stuart Varney’s show.

Meanwhile, Jon Stewart’s take had less to do with the vulgarity and more about “show regular Willie Geist’s disapproving glare.”
