Vitriolic Voice Mail
Fox News ^ | Wednesday, December 01, 2004 | Brit Hume

Posted on 12/01/2004 9:30:32 AM PST by Shellback Chuck

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that WHYY-FM's Rachel Buchman (search) left a message at the offices of Laptoplobbyist.com saying, "I wanted to tell you that you're vile, horrible people. You're awful people. You represent horrible ideas. God hates you and he wants to kill your children. You should all burn in hell. Bye." Buchman says she lost her temper, and resigned for what she called "personal reasons" after Laptoplobbyist director Chris Carmouche (search) sent the audio message to 150,000 members of the site as an example of media bias.

"God hates you and he wants to kill your children. You should all burn in hell."

Right. Like a Leftist is even on speaking terms with the Almighty.

This woman is mentally deranged. I hope she gets help. And I mean serious thorazine-with-a-straightjacket-and-rubber-room help.

Ms. Buchman is the one on the left (naturally).

Just another reason to remove funding from NPR and PBS. If they have to compete in the marketplace for funding they will either change their point of view or go out of business.

What's more, she looks like she needs to be, too.

And on that note:

As another poster on another thread about this same topic said, "Never piss off a man who buys his pixels by the terabyte." Very apropos. :-)

Hopefully some Congress critter will someday have the nads to sponsor a law making taxpayer support for public broadcasting come from a box folks voluntarily check off on their tax return.

What a nut job. It's not like the site director was soliciting uninterested people; he was contacting subscribers.

Oh, that. That's Ms. Buchman's (ahum) "joy buzzer" going off in her purse.

Don't ask me how I know. That's all I'm gonna say about it.

WHYY-FM's Rachel Buchman

WHO???

If I want to hear "vitriolic" there are quite enough Deans, Gores, Baldwins, and Whoopi Goildbergs to keep me entertained.

She certainly was. The only thing that WHYY has on that I will watch is Hometime and that bothers me sometimes when they start the "green" cant.

The chirpy, studied casualness to me is a sign of some scary, underlying mental aggressiveness.

The sweetie-pie tone was very much planned and deliberate.

After CBS heard about this, they auditioned her for Dan Rather's anchor spot. Something about continuity...

Just checked out laptoplobbyist.com, it requested that the number not be called. He left it in the voice mail because it authenticated she was using a work number to spew this hate speech.

The dope even gives her phone number. Here's the phone number she left on her vile message:

215 351 2057

Why not give her a call? Tell her what you think of her.

Bet ya she'll get all bent out of shape. This is the kind that can dish it out but not take it.

Actually, that's her phone # at work. The ditz called on company time.

Needless to say, she's no longer employed.

"I wanted to tell you that you're vile, horrible people."

People like this have trouble starting sentences with words other than "I". If she is speaking in the moment, why the past tense?

Sure about that?

I left her a voice mail at 215.351.2057. She wasn't there so I left her a message.
