Katie Couric on CBS’ web site has made this post about a “deep background” press briefing at 1600 Pensylvania Avenue that she participated in. The post’s theme is Ms. Couric looking around the room and finding she’s the only woman there. To that point, I say, “so what?”
The quote I took away from the post is: “And even though I’ve been in this business for more years than I’d like to admit, and interviewed countless Presidents and world leaders, it’s still thrilling—and even a little awe-inspiring—to get “briefed” at the White House, no matter who is sitting in the Oval Office.” [emphasis mine].
Let a liberal – politician, reporter, whomever – rattle on long enough, and their true colors will always show! Does anybody think she’d have written the “no matter who…” part if there was a Democrat in the White House?
To address her main beef though – Ms. Couric, especially since we just celebrated MLK (you know, the guy who said “I have a dream that one day men will be judged not by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”) day, shouldn’t the people “at the table” be the ones who got their on their merits, not their sex or some other naturally occuring physical attribute?
…it’s about content that folks want to listen to, and therefore other folks (those with money, and other products) will want to buy advertising slots on. Air America is rumored to be declaring bankruptcy (thanks again to Drudge). What’s laughable about the article is the quote, “The right wing is sure to seize on Air America’s financial woes as a sign that progressive talk radio is unpopular.”
If it was popular, there would be listeners. If there were listeners, there would be advertisers. If there were advertisers, there would be revenue. If there were more listeners, and then more advertisers, then the network could charge more for advertising, hence more revenue. Revenue = no bankruptcy. Duh.
I know economics is tough for liberals, particularly since they hate the free market, but if you’re hocking a product that nobody wants to buy and/or sponsor – IT’S A BAD PRODUCT. Again, Duh.
Jason over at Texas Rainmaker does a great job of dissecting all of the liberal whacko furor over the upcoming ABC mini-series “The Path to 9/11”.
What’s even more appalling is that this television program is the top issue over at the Democratic National Committee’s website. I missed the Commandment in the Book of Exodus that said “Thou shalt not criticize Clinton”, I guess.
I am sorry more than ever that I voted for that sleazy, lying, megalomaniac, self-centered, add-your-own-insult-here ex-President in 1992. Thank God I had my conservative awakening a few years later!
Way back when I raised my right hand and said, “I do solemnly swear to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign or domestic…”, I should think that the deplorable, no make that treasonous group calling themselves “Scholars for 9/11 Truth” certainly qualifies as the latter.
I’m all for free speech, but free speech doesn’t include sedition.
Thanks to Sister Toldjah for pointing them out.
