Emboldened by the take down of Don Imus (lefties will even eat their own) their henchmen at Media Matters, the folks dedicated to making sure you only read or hear the news that they approve, have announced their "enemies list" of future targets.
For those of you not old enough to recall the significance of an "enemies list" look here.
Media Matters Enemies List
On April 11, NBC News announced that it was dropping MSNBC's simulcast of Imus in the Morning in the wake of the controversy that erupted over host Don Imus' reference to the Rutgers University women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos." The following day, CBS president and CEO Leslie Moonves announced that CBS -- which owns both the radio station that broadcast Imus' program and Westwood One, which syndicated the program -- has fired Imus and would cease broadcasting his radio show. But as Media Matters for America has extensively documented, bigotry and hate speech targeting, among other characteristics, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and ethnicity continue to permeate the airwaves through personalities such as Glenn Beck, Neal Boortz, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Michael Savage, Michael Smerconish, and John Gibson.
What? No Sean Hannity?And just what have the above done to deserve to be targeted for destruction of their livelihood? Here's a sample from the Media Matters enemies list indictment:
- On the March 21 broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, The Glenn Beck Program, Beck called Rosie O'Donnell, co-host of ABC's The View, a "fat witch," claimed that O'Donnell has "blubber ... just pouring out of her eyes," and asked, "Do you know how many oil lamps we could keep burning just on Rosie O'Donnell fat?" Beck also called Hillary Clinton a "stereotypical bitch."
Hmmm... Rosies a fat whale and Hillary Clinton is a bitch? Accurate and mild statements compared to some of the crapola Media Matters readers regularly fling at President Bush, Vice President Cheney, White House Press Secretary Tony Snow.....
- On the July 19, 2006, edition of his radio show, Cox Radio Syndication's The Neal Boortz Show, Boortz claimed that "at its core," Islam is a "violent, violent religion," and said, "[T]his Muhammad guy is just a phony rag-picker." Boortz asserted that "[i]t is perfectly legitimate, perhaps even praiseworthy, to recognize Islam as a religion of vicious, violent, bloodthirsty cretins."
And again, what's your complaint?
Of course Rush Limbaugh is target #1 for the lovers of free (approved) speech:
- On the March 2 broadcast on his nationally syndicated radio show, Premiere Radio Networks' The Rush Limbaugh Show, Rush Limbaugh stated that "since [Sen. Barack] Obama [D-IL] has -- on his mother's side -- forebears of his mother had slaves, could we not say that if Obama wins the Democratic nomination and then wins the presidency, he will own [Rev.] Al Sharpton?"
Yes, and O'bama will have to pay reparations to himself! They've got more goodies on Limbaugh like: "Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?" Yes, actually I have.
Oh there's much, much more. Taken out of context and overblown to shock the easily offended sensibilities of self righteous,left wing hyprocritical poseurs bigots who couldn't care less when much much worse is directed at anyone not in one of their protected classes of people.
I say: you want to change the culture and clean things up? Fine by me. Start by holding yourselves accountable to the same standard of conduct you daily demand of others.
