Fool For a Day

To repeat a well known phrase from our beloved Diamond Tiger, Today’s AYFKM/Hypocrite Of  The Day Award goes to:

RUPERT MURDOCH:

“I don’t think we should be supporting the Tea Party or any other party,” he said. Earlier this week, the network published an article to its website that was semi-critical of the tea party.

ROTFLMAO, at the risk of sounding cynical…when was the last time Rupert Murdoch didn’t take a side, especially when it has to do with money?!  Recently having strengthened his alliance with the Saudi’s, whose holdings in FOX recently increased by  14% , Murdoch is hardly in a position to cry “FOUL!” at someone for taking a side.

MEDIA MATTERS

Fox pulls Hannity from tea-party rally

Host planned to broadcast show live from Cincinnati

Sean Hannity

WASHINGTON – Angry Fox News executives ordered Sean Hannity to abandon plans, announced as late as this afternoon on his nationally syndicated radio program, to broadcast his TV show from a Cincinnati tea-party rally he was headlining, a Los Angeles Times media blog reported.

Hannity, on a book tour for his No. 1 best-seller “Conservative Victory: Defeating Obama’s Radical Agenda,” was scheduled to be the featured speaker at a four-hour rally at the University of Cincinnati – with as many as 13,000 in attendance. Proceeds from the event were to benefit a local tea-party organization.

But senior Fox News executives said they were not aware Hannity was being billed as the centerpiece of the event or that tea-party organizers were charging for admission to Hannity’s show as part of the rally. They first learned of it this morning from John Finley, Hannity’s executive producer, who was in Cincinnati to produce Hannity’s show,  reported the Times’ media blog “Show Tracker.”

Attendees were being charged a minimum of $5, with seats near Hannity’s set going for $20.

The execs reportedly recalled Hannity to New York to do his show in his regular studio. The network plans to do an extensive post-mortem about the incident with Finley and Hannity’s staff.

“Fox News never agreed to allow the Cincinnati Tea Party organizers to use Sean Hannity’s television program to profit from broadcasting his show from the event,” said Bill Shine, the network’s executive vice president of programming, according to the Times blog. “When senior executives in New York were made aware of this, we changed our plans for tonight’s show.”

Last week, News Corp boss Rupert Murdoch said before a Washington, D.C. crowd that Fox News should not be supporting the movement.

“I don’t think we should be supporting the Tea Party or any other party,” he said. Earlier this week, the network published an article to its website that was semi-critical of the tea party.

Reached in New York, Hannity declined to comment other than to say he planned to do his show tonight in studio.

Recently, much to HuffPo’s delight, FOX published a semi critical article about the Tea Party Movement, giving sway to long time main stream media’s frenzied efforts to discount, demonize and derail the mounting number of Americans who have realized they are being tyrannized, lied to and swindled by their government and its complicit corporate media…

Ya gotta laugh, right?  I mean…come ON folks…could they BE any less transparent??

Hello Greta, Sean and Rush!

You have been asking the above question repeatedly since David Letterman maligned Sarah Palin (again) and her daughter(s) this week.  The National Organization for Women IS INSOLVENT, according to a highly placed insider.  You are missing a trend that has been taking place beneath the surface of American politics since the Democrat primary ended last year; yet you are all aware of the circumstances that led up to it.  BECAUSE OF THEIR FAILURE TO SUPPORT ALL WOMEN, N.O.W. AND OTHERS LIKE IT ARE ALL BUT DEFUNCT! Scores of women have abandoned NOW, canceled subscriptions to Ms. Magazine, and stopped contributing to NARAL due to these groups’ collective failure to vigorously support Hillary Clinton during the primary – including not standing up to Barack Obama’s campaign team and supporters –  in spite of the race baiting and thuggery that went on against mostly female supporters in the trenches.  Some of these organizations jumped ship and gratuitously endorsed Barack Obama while Hillary Clinton was still in the race:  they will never recover from those actions. The unintended consequences go beyond the country’s decent into socialism and will impact the far left in ways foreseen and unforeseen. The old-guard women’s groups you mention daily are gone. Like you, many moderates and independents now believe the women’s groups have strayed from their stated mission of supporting women in the workplace, in their access to healthcare, in politics, and in society in general  –   and have veered toward the useless and redundant purpose of supporting all far-left liberals, regardless of gender, in every conceivable realm. Moderate women and men alike have also left the Democrat party in droves, never to return. Calling themselves PUMAS, independents, unaffiliated or even newly conservative, this group voted for John McCain after Hillary was given that final heave-ho by Nancy Pelosi during the fake roll call at the sham primary in Denver last August.  These voters have been just as disgusted, frustrated, and upset over the way Sarah Palin and her children were treated during the general election as they were at the manner in which Hillary was treated. THE QUESTIONS MEDIA FOLKS SHOULD BE ASKING TODAY REGARDING THE DEFENSE OF WOMEN LIKE SARAH PALIN ARE THESE:  WHERE HAVE THE MEMBERS OF, SUBSCRIBERS TO, SUPPORTERS FOR, AND CONTRIBUTORS TO THE MENTIONED ORGANIZATIONS GONE?  WHY DID THEY LEAVE?  WHAT ORGANIZATIONS ARE REPLACING THEM, IF ANY?  WILL THE OLD GROUPS SOON BE RELEGATED TO HISTORY AS FAILURES IN THEIR STATED MISSION OF SUPPORTING ALL WOMEN? Sean, contrary to an oft-repeated example cited in your coverage of the Letterman-Palin conflict, Hillary Clinton and others not on the Obama bandwagon were and are still constantly put through the ringer by the far-left.  The Obama Democrats have attacked all but the most radical-leaning women and men in a manner that would never have happened within the Democrat party prior to the Obama Phenomena.  The contributing factors to this include the tone of his campaign(s); the fact that he is a mixed-race black-appearing presumably naturalized Kenyan American of Arab descent and Islamic upbringing; and the makeup of his supporters consisting of a combination of socialist-leaning young thugs and low-information racists and, alternatively, “politically correct” and/or secular bigots.  (You showed clips of some of these types recently, for example, when you covered Eric Holder’s failure to prosecute Black Panthers with billy clubs at a voting booth in Pennsylvania who were there to intimidate John McCain’s supporters.) We all know that Sarah Palin has been and continues to be treated badly by the far left.  Yet there is evidence that moderate women and their supporters have also suffered at the hands of their former party allies.  Countless YouTube videos depict the sexism, mockery, and slandering of Hillary Clinton throughout the primary.  There are also numerous testimonies of the brutality inflicted upon her supporters.  This includes examples of women and the elderly being shoved, mocked and bullied at the Democrat-run caucuses.  One filmmaker, Gigi Gaston, has compiled interviews into an as yet-to-be rolled-out documentary entitled, We Will Not be Silenced; Hillary’s own campaign filed a lawsuit – now buried – against the Obama campaign alleging the mistreatment at caucuses as well as fraud.  There is also evidence that moderate female supporters of both Hillary and Sarah Palin were bullied and intimidated online:  the hacking of emails, the posting of private information and the sabotaging of blogs are just some examples of what women have dealt with who are not part of the far-left agenda.  They, too, pleaded for support from NOW and others to no avail; today, they just applaud its imminent demise. In conclusion, feminists in the traditional sense are no longer; the voices supporting women today are mostly conservative women seen on Fox News.  They have taken up the mantle for women –  and this will help Republicans in 2010 and 2012 if the media make folks aware of the trend. Thank you for all you do.

Sincerely,

[Listener’s Name]
