The lamestream media strikes again!

TNT offered up a mea culpa Thursday to former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin after Tracy Morgan made some, um, below-the-belt remarks about the Mama Grizzly during a live pregame broadcast of "Inside the NBA."

So just what did he say that was so bad?

Things got rolling when the hosts were chatting about who was hotter: Sarah Palin or the funnyman's "30 Rock" co-star Tina Fey (who won an Emmy for her spot-on satirical portrait of the half-term Republican governor turned tube personality). That prompted Charles Barkley to say, "Sarah Palin's good looking, isn't she?"

Not one to shy away from speaking his mind, Morgan went rogue: "Let me tell you something about Sarah Palin — she's good masturbation material."

Unfortunately, the cable net didn't take kindly to that candid description of the woman who once won the Miss Wasilla beauty pageant before becoming one of America's most well-known politicians.

"It's unfortunate Mr. Morgan showed a lack of judgment on our air with his inappropriate comments," a TNT spokesman told the Hollywood Reporter in a statement.

The comedian declined to comment. No doubt he's said plenty already.
