Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has canceled an interview on NBC’s “Today,” following offensive remarks about her and an apology by MSNBC host Martin Bashir, reports

“Today” co-host Matt Lauer was slated to visit Palin’s Alaska home for a holiday-themed interview. NBC News and Palin didn’t return requests for comment, the story says.

Palin is “mighty steamed” at MSNBC and Bashir over his remarks, according to Howard Kurtz at Fox News.

As previously reported, Bashir implied in a commentary that Palin deserved to have someone "shit" in her mouth, and later apologized to her, her family, supporters and “anyone who may have heard what I said.”
