Posted on 12/03/2004 7:23:15 PM PST by freedom44
A National Public Radio (NPR) reporter has resigned after a hateful voice mail message she left for a conservative group was made public.
Rachel Buchman worked for WHYY in Philadelphia, an NPR affiliate, when she called the offices of the Web site laptoplobbyist.com to express her outrage over an e-mail the group sent to her opposing special rights for homosexuals.
"You're evil, horrible people. You're awful people," she said, identifying herself only as "Rachel." "You represent horrible ideas. God hates you and He wants to kill your children. You should all burn."
Chris Carmouche, publisher of laptoplobbyist.com, said he's accustomed to liberals being offended by his group's moral standsbut added that Buchman's message was over the top.
"We want people to know that this is not an isolated incident," he said. "People have to realize there's not just a media bias, but in many cases there is a media hatred, toward anything conservative, Christian or traditional."
After Carmouche posted a recording of Buchman's message on his Web site, she apologized for "a personal matter that was turned into a public issue."
"Rather than call my journalistic integrity into question," she said. "I decided to resign for personal reasons."
Carmouche said it's too late for her professional reputation to be salvaged.
"Conservatives will no longer tolerate the reporting of liberal vitriol as fact," he told The Washington Times. "We will not tolerate the Dan Rathers of the world spoon-feeding the public liberal propaganda. And we will call the 'old media' to account when they make their biases and bigotries obvious and deviate from commonly acceptable standards of journalism."
WHEN will the government STOP funding these atheist socialists with our tax dollars?
Have you ever lived with a liberal. The answer is NEVER.
When voters elect people who will put a stop to it.
ping for later
Just another victim of PEST.
Back to what the meaning of is is, are we?
I saw a bumper sticker today...it read "One Nation..Under LAWS" (the other side of the bumper had a K/E 2004 sticker)....
PEST has become one funny thing. BWAAAAAAGHHHHH!
Perhaps she'd be happy to know that they are burning, in the Sudan.
Such hatred! It's OK Rachel. We still love you... we just want you off the air.
The meltdown of the left continues. November was a fun month, and December is looking up too.
Ping to self for later pingout.
Yes - and most of our "laws" were based on the Ten Commandments! These liberals just think these ideas appeared out of thin air. Stupid liberals.
Liberalism remains the nation's number one disease....
When will the atheists realize they don't have a prayer? <;-)
