Skip to comments.Liberals Try to Knock Melanie Morgan & Conseravtive Station Off the Air!
Posted on 01/10/2007 12:28:25 PM PST by Impeach98
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.

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.)

Melanie Morgan under attack PING!!!
Liberals targeting conservative talk radio station & Melanie Morgan PING!
But, but, but, I thought freedom of speech was their main platform...
You should see this. They've gotten big name advertisers to pull off the station such as MasterCard, VISA, Bank of America, and others.
I listen to her every day. Her and Lee are great. Hang in there.
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
The following link does not relate to this thread http://sacredscoop.com
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).
We should post EVERY advertisers direct email link here in this thread and someone work up a good response we can send them voicing our displeasurte with their decision to support censorship of free speech.
Thought you should see this.
They're going after our gal, Mel!
Heads up Andy!!
What works in the campaign season also works in the "off season" as they continue their political witchhunt to take down their critics.
Seems illegal to me. I wonder how many liberal bloggers you can fit in a jail cell.
Melanie has our support. Please keep us up-to-date.
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.
I guess I could contact MC and threaten to cancel my credit card, and transfer any debt to my Amex
Keep it up Mel! You will prevail, as always !
Thanks for this info. Master Card is many many banks. Can you get more specific so I can make some phone calls.
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.
Wow, what an awful video they present of Ann and Melanie too. Either they have altered it or my computer is going crazy, lol.
I went to vote and make a comment but hate to have to sign up at all these places.
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.
please keep me on this ping list!
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.
But we don't!
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.
Have you seen this yet?
We're pulling for you, Melanie babe. We'll do whatever we can to support you. Tell us how we can help.
Ah, the intolerant left!
They have no shame. They will do anything to silence dissent. It's going to get worse now that they are in power.
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.
Sure, I will see what I can find out and will post it and let you know!
Well...they get a little bit of power..now they want the whole USA to bow to their whims.
George Soros told the Dems that he OWNS them...so it seems.
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.
If ABC caves over Melanie Morgan, what is to stop the libs going after Hannity and Levin next?
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....
Thanks for the tip.
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.
Support for Melanie bump.
Keep it up Mel! You will prevail, as always !
