"Hostile, hateful" - From Washington Times / Inside Politics

PBS reporter Rachel Buchman has resigned from affiliate WHYY-FM in Philadelphia after a voice mail she left with a conservative activist group was made public.

"You're evil, horrible people. You're awful people. You represent horrible ideas. God hates you and He wants to kill your children. You should all burn," she said in a breezy phone message to Virginia-based www.Laptoplobbyist.com over Thanksgiving.

The group posted an audio clip of her message at their Web site www.laptoplobbyist.com/rachel.mp3, prompting both reporter and radio station to issue apologies Tuesday.

The liberals hate is flowing outward to encompass more people. It is a phenomena that will spell doom for the Rats. I guess getting in touch with your feelings can be selfdestructive if you only live by one feeling-hate.

One of those deals where she resigned with no job to "spend more time with family".

I take that back. After listening to the message, it turns out she LEFT HER TELEPHONE NUMBER on the message. Now I'm leaning towards too many Gin soaked raisins for lunch.

RACHEL BUCHMAN .... works (worked) as a freelance reporter for WHYY news, and helps produce WHYY's Radio TImes talk show from time to time.

Rachel graduated cum laude from Barnard College of Columbia University in 1999 with honors in Anthropology.

Barnard College and anthropology. Reminds me of the gals from the women's college in Animal House (What was that college...not Faber, but...)

This incident also shows why even liberals should not want federal funding of public radio.

If she worked for the Pacifica Network (or some other lefy outfit) she could insult conservatives without a problem.

Somehow I doubt she has learned this important lesson.

What is Rachel Buchanan's DUmmie Screen Name? "Greenbriar" by any chance?

Resign? Fired? Who cares, as long as another commie RAT is gone.
