Curtis Sliwa suspends show producer for screensaver snafu regarding Obama's "birth certificate"
Curtis Sliwa Live Radio Show ^

Posted on 07/02/2009 7:05:39 PM PDT by SilvieWaldorfMD

During last night's "The Curtis Sliwa Show" (Wed., 7/1/09), Curtis announced that he had suspended his longtime producer Frank Morano because of the fact that Frank had a screensaver on his own work computer that had a copy of the ObamaCrimes.com page depicting the alleged "faux" birth certificate of President Obama from the State of Hawaii.

Sliwa said that Frank will be suspended for the rest of the week, or until he removes the screensaver, and he stated that the Citadel lawyers are working with Frank to get him back on the air on the grounds of Free Speech. From what I've gathered by listening to Sliwa's show for months now, it appears that Frank has been a longtime critic of the President for not showing a real vaulted & sequenced copy of his original birth certificate. Curtis calls Frank's screensaver "treasonous".

He spoke about this topic last night (7/1) and is continuing the conversation tonight as well. Curtis can be heard LIVE weekdays via WABC radio in New York from 10 pm - 1 am. He can be heard on WMAL in Washington, DC from 9 pm - 1 am.

I give Sliwa credit for a lot of guts, but he’s not the brightest crayon in the box.

When he comes on WMAL after Mark Levin I usually change to music.

I really like Curtis but his behavior on this is weird.
There is no reason to believe that Ubama was born in Hawaii except for Ubama’s word on it. Since Ubama is a lying scumbag, what good is his word?

I’d say it was gettin’ her done along with Rush and Mark but the vibes are not right?

It sounds like Curtis wants no part of this.

Frank has been talking about this issue on-air since before the Nov. 2008 election and throughout the past 8-10 months. He brings it up every other day, it seems. Curtis has let him do so. All of a sudden, in July 2009, Frank gets suspended. It's all very weird...

Please transfer your comments from the other Curtis Sliwa thread to this one. The other post has been locked by Admin Moderator for having been a double-post (my mistake!). This is the only running and existing thread.

Many thanks!

At first, I thought Sliwa swallowed the whole Obama being born in Hawaii story. But as I listened to him over time, he seems to be using the Obama birth certificate issue as a foil to keep the issue alive with over the top absurdity.

Sliwa is an empty-headed droid. Every time he guest hosts for Hannity, even though it doesn't cost me anything, I feel ripped off.

He had a great idea, a long time ago, and has been runnin' on empty for decades. Now, he's a Vichy collaborator. How the beret'd have fallen.

This is too strange.
Why would anyone want to use the bamster's BC as a screen saver? Why not use the photo of him morphing into malcolm x? LOL
It's also a silly reason to be suspended. Extremely silly reason. Curtis is silly.

That's my point. He brings up the issue all the time, Why if he's so against it? He acts like Obama speaks the truth about his origins but he says absurd things while ridiculing the issue. Some are silly.

I heard Curtis talking about it and I interpreted the ‘suspension’ as showmanship and a good excuse to give the guy the week off for the Fourth of July. Their banter about Obama’s birth certificate seems like two jokesters kidding for effect.

Still, where is Chris Plante, anyway? All the summer substitutions going on, there’s room for Chris!

That's my take on it too. 4th of July vacation. suspending someone over this? Too weird to be true.

Yes, One supports exposing Obama and the other defends idiotically that I don't take him to believe what he says.

As the husband of a prominent labor and employment attorney I know just enough to be dangerous. Only the state can infringe on your constitutional rights unless there is a special statute like DC has saying you can not be discriminated against for political views...I don’t think New York has this or even applies. Under Title Seven this is not a conflict. Curtis has every right to ask him to remove the screen saver whether he is being a jerk or not regardless of how many times he’s let it stay up. Curtis is a snore so I’m not supporting him but he should have the legal right if I understand correctly.

I am surprised. I thought Sliwa was one of us.
When I was still in Europe, I used WABC online to get
Rush and Kook to Kook AM.
I often listened to Sliwa. I just cant imagine him as an Obot.
Has he jumped the shark, or what?

I've listened to Curtis on WABC for the past umpteen years... Whenever I think of Curtis I can STILL hear him saying, "Yo, Lisa! What's up wid dat Shaka Zulu Dinkens?!?"

I think this is EXACTLY like you said, a tongue-in-cheek thing where his producer takes an extended holiday.

You're right. I don't know if this whole "Suspend Frank" deal is a joke or not, given that Frank has been allowed to talk about this birth certificate issue for over a year on-air.

You are so right, HM! He does appear to bring this issue up during his first hour (9-10 pm), when he's only heard on WMAL and on some L.A. station only.

I haven't heard Chris Plante for a while, but I heard he was subbing for Mark Davis earlier in the week... I wouldn't know since I've been listening to Tammy Bruce sub for Laura Ingraham all week...

Sliwa is like Hannity to me. I can occasionally listen for very short periods of time. Very, very short.

Hannity is inane, most of the time.

Sliwa is over the top ego-driven - all the time.

Thank me!

Yes, it leads me to think that Curtis is doing this to call attention to the matter. If Rush brings it up once in a while (I did hear him bring it up twice this week) it only means that "something's up"....

Interesting...

I’m noticing funny things over WABC 77 talkradio in NYC recently. In the last few months we’ve lost Bob Grant, Curtis Sliwa, Joe Scarborough complete with Mika the Marxist, and now some substitue host who is a phony liberal Democrat apologist masquerading as a “real conservative”. I think his name is something like Hagin or Nagin.

Just a wild little thought but it almost seems as though WABC is trying to head the Fairness Doctrine off at the pass. The station has replaced rock-ribbed, unapologetic conserviative hosts with luke-warm moderate Republicans who are more passionate about finding fault in their own party than they are in the complete leftist take-over of the Federal Government. Both Sliwa and Scarborough are spending such an inordinate amount of time on the Mark Sanford affair that it’s becoming silly — and boring. Is this WABC’s way of bowing down to the new statists who wish to pull the plug on conservative talk radio? In other words, they seek to water down the conservative message to make the statists and anti-freedom progressives happy?

Also, for those who might not be aware, WABC TalkRadio has recently replaced their long-time program program director with one Laura Cantillo who was a producer for Oprah on XM radio. Cantillo also says she finds Rachel Maddow “highly entertaining”. For any conservative listener of WABC TalkRAdio, this his highly distressing. She has been hired by WABC no doubt, to moderate the tone wherever possible. She will not touch Rush’s show or Levin’s or Hannity’s or they will quickly tell her where she can go. But she will be there to find some way to sneak in the liberal/leftist viewpoint whenever possible. During the weekends, when Hannity’s on vacation, subbing for Imus’s many absentees. We’re beginning to see and hear the new “moderate” WABC TalkRadio tailor-made for the Obama era -— and we don’t like it one stinking bit.

I will do the "Happy Dance" if 630 WMAL in Washington, DC drops Joe & Mika. They are unbearable to listen to. Mika is okay at times, I do like her, but Joe is awful - a narcissist and all "into himself" - more so than anyone else on radio... it's pathetic.
