Yahoo News' Washington bureau chief was fired Wednesday after he was caught on a hot mic joking that Republicans are "happy to have a party" while black people drown.

The comment was made by David Chalian during live coverage of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, and was an apparent reference to the convention getting underway while a tropical storm-turned-hurricane barreled toward the Gulf Coast.

"They are happy to have a party with black people drowning," said a voice off-camera, later identified as Chalian, as video of the Romneys played on screen. Other people could be heard laughing at the comment.

A Yahoo! spokesperson confirmed to FoxNews.com that Chalian was let go, and said the company has apologized to Romney and his staff

Just to be rehired by CBS, NBC, or ABC at twice the pay. That's a badge of honor in their world.

The reprimands are such a joke. Right after they do it publicly, they go behind closed doors, high five, then circle jerk eachother.

Yeah, right, fired! Promoted is more like it! They love people like this and if you ever look at Yahoo's home site it's like the DNC's website!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!
