LIBERAL BLOGGERS TRYING TO KNOCK
MELANIE MORGAN OFF THE AIR

For the past several days, liberal bloggers have been engineering a "Blogswarm." They are getting hundreds of liberal bloggers to participate in a drill where they are getting advertisers to pull advertising off of conservative radio station KSFO. Mike Stark, who harrassed Senator George Allen during Campaign 2006 is involved in leading the effort.

The charge by the liberal bloggers? That KSFO talkers including pro-troop leader Melanie Morgan engage in "Hate Speech." They're deliberately distorting comments by Morgan (she responded to comments by liberals who targeted the Republicans for defeat in Congress by saying that she and her cohorts could play that game and paint a target on Nancy Pelosi's wide laughing eyes. They now accuse her of making a death threat against Pelosi???!! ( Source: Melanie Morgan on Fox News )

They're now getting the mainstream media to pick this up and carry the water, as they wish to take this issue and replicate it in markets across the country. 2 CBS affiliates today, 2 newspapers, over 500 blogs, and they are pushing their hardest to make this bigger and bigger. Media Matters is leading the charge.

The message: NO CORPORATE SPONSORS FOR CONSERVATIVE TALK.

On their blogs they point out that political momentum is on their side and they can now push for Congress to restore the Fairness Doctorine in broadcasting.

You can read their blogs - they are trying to take Melanie Morgan and her conservative compatriots at KSFO off the air. And next stop will be your local conservative radio talkers. Melanie Morgan won the Associated Press's Mark Twain Journalism Award for Best Special Program when she broadcast live interviews with the troops in Iraq. If they can manage to take her out, then no conservative talker is safe from this intimidation campaign.

HERE'S WHAT THE LEFT IS UP TO:

* Here is their YouTube presentation attacking the "hate speech" (be sure to give it a 1 rating and leave a comment):
YouTube Video Attacks Conservative Talkers

* Here is their YouTube presentation smearing Ann Coulter and Melanie Morgan. ((be sure to give it a 1 rating and leave a comment):
Melanie and Ann Mocked for Comments on Bill Keller of New York Times

(Melanie and Ann said that the disclosure of top secret classified documents to undermine the war effort was grounds for treason. And anyone who was found guilty of treason should receive the specified penalty (which is up to death). And they both explained that they would support such a penalty for someone such as Bill Keller of the New York Times who REPEATEDLY undermined the war effort, knowingly and deliberately, by publishing classfied documents on terrorist wiretapping and terrorist finance tracking.)

This thread is informational at this point. I'll send this thread to Melanie, so please drop her a short note to boost her spirits up. Will let you know what action can be taken on her behalf and KSFO's behalf (she has her hands tied by ABC/Disney who decide all the corporate maneuvering - such as what seems to be a very ill-advised move to shut down the liberal blogger's ISP, which made him a hero to liberal bloggers).

You should see this. They've gotten big name advertisers to pull off the station such as MasterCard, VISA, Bank of America, and others.

Ha- the liberals are showing that they fear losing the majority of coverage for their vile 'reporting' and are typically reacting in an equally vile manner- they're such a tolerant group them thar lefty commies.

Hopefully we can counter with a freeper onslaught of our own

Do you think she advocates for the murder of people (as the liberals are telling advertisers)?

Besides terrorists (see, the liberals HATE that she, Lee, Brian Sussman, etc... want to see the terrorists dead. The anti-war Left thinks that's just so awful).

The Left cannot win in debate so they whip up hysteria and smear their opponents. The Foleygate case was not about Foley having sex with men who'd left the aide program, it was about how "corrupt GOP leadership knew about him emailing 16-year olds and did nothing". Except that wasn't the case and DNC leadership and the media DID know and did nothing except save it for an October Surprise.

What works in the campaign season also works in the "off season" as they continue their political witchhunt to take down their critics.

Yes, your assessment is right. I didn't post the links to every specific blog on this drill, but if you go and read them there is a deliberate, orchestrated effort between them to expand on their election success.

They don't see this as "America's war on terror," they see it as "let's take over the country and do it one step at a time."

Their plotting on which advertisers to pressure and with what tactics, and who in the mainstream media to help break this story wider, how to get momentum behind a new push for the Fairness Doctorine's return, etc... is scary. They don't care about right and wrong, they are determined to win, and right now no one is really fighting back against them.

We're going to wake up one day in the next few months and we'll have a new Fairness Doctorine (after all the TV stations and newspapers write puff pieces about how great it would be), and we'll have more conservative talk radio stations silenced and more conservative talkers without jobs.

The Left does not want to just win the war of ideas. They want to demolish anyone who stands in their way. People need to wake up... while the Right is infighting, the Liberals are carving up the playing field.

Here's what it is all about folks - KSFO is ranked 4th in the 4th largest radio market in the country. The station is popular, so their only hope is to silence the hosts since the free market. The audience loves the station, so they will destroy the station... it's the only way the liberals can win.

On their blogs they point out that political momentum is on their side and they can now push for Congress to restore the Fairness Doctorine in broadcasting.

Of course they are. Air America was a disaster. It's obvious mainstream America won't pay (via advertisers) to listen to their tripe, so they have to try and FORCE THE GOVERNMENT to reinstitute the Fairness Doctrine and thus drop conservative talk.

Thsiis how liberals show their devotion to freedom of speech.

To quote one of the people who camps out in Lafayette Park in DC when some conservatives showed up (soem years ago) to wish President Reagan a happy birthday, "Freedom is for everybody, not for you." The liberal creed. Freedom is not for you.

Precious.

Checkout the SaveWRKO web-site. No wonder the Libs didn't squawk about Air America going to Mexican Music. They are going to have the Red Sox carry them when the evil Julie Kahn knocks off the rest of the Conservative voices on WRKO.

Liberals claim to cherish the 1st Amendment only up to the point where the message is one they agree with. If the message has to do with traditional American values, then they cry foul and work to ban such speech. The libs are dispicable degenerates IMHO. Keep fighting the good fight Melanie and KSFO. Thank you for supporting our troops and this Nation.

I posted to another FReeper that the list is long and includes better known advertisers such as MasterCard, Visa, Bank of America and others. They claim to have gotten the Governor of Michigan, Democrat Jennifer Granholm, to have personally been involved in pulling ads placed by the Michigan Development Corporation on the station.

"It's obvious mainstream America won't pay (via advertisers) to listen to their tripe, so they have to try and FORCE THE GOVERNMENT to reinstitute the Fairness Doctrine and thus drop conservative talk."

Yep, good point. Since the marketplace rejected Air America, they have to come up with the strategy of not letting the marketplace have access to conservative talk.

It won't stop them...

But, I am thinking that Sean Hannity probably has enough money by now..that he could do like Rush..and have his own setup...and take Mark with him.

You know...a syndicated thing...

We do need to watch the House proceedings though re: the Fairness Doctrine.

We also need to wonder what they have in store for Free Republic....

Yes, they talk in some of the blog postings about ultimately going after Hannity & Limbaugh, but they speculate that they can't do it right now and be successful. So they seem to be moving to take out a few prominent 2nd and 3rd tier conservative talkers, brand the story of "threatening hate speech being sponsored by corporations" in news media stories and in doing so freeze the flow of money to conservative talk radio shows.

Give them credit for one thing. While what they are doing is VILE, and their stated goal of undermining the war on terrorism is ANTI-AMERICAN, they have nonetheless wisened up to Free Market policies about advertising and corporations. They recognize that they can kill a number of conservative talk radio hosts by making it politically unacceptable for advertisers to be on such shows. And they will use the liberal Mainstream Media to start repeating the story over and over again so that no advertising rep. would ever have the "cajones" to advertise on a conservative station.
