Reporter Booted from Sean Penn event
Washington Examiner ^ | March 11, 2010 | Nikki Schwab and Tara Palmeri

REPORTED BOOTED OUT OF SEAN PENN EVENT

A Yeas & Nays reporter (Tara Palmeri) was publicly berated and threatened to be escorted out by police on Thursday night when the reporter asked actor Sean Penn a question about his humanitarian work in Haiti.

Penn, who recently has been criticized for his motivations in helping to rebuilding Haiti, recently told CBS News he hopes his critics "die screaming of rectal cancer."

Members of the media were invited to a gala hosted at the Washington Hebrew Congregation and were allowed to ask one question each of the actor in a closed-door news briefing.

When the Yeas & Nays reporter asked, "How have you seen your critics change since you mentioned that they should die of rectal cancer?" publicity coordinator C.J. Jordan interrupted to say the reporter was only allowed to talk about the Haitian benefit.

"You know, I think that you are investing in a culture that I am not interested in. And you should go your way," Penn said to the reporter, when she said her question was related to his involvement in Haiti.

Jordan ended the interview, and publicly scolded the reporter outside of the media room. Jordan told the reporter that to keep her job, she needed to write a letter of apology to the Haitian ambassador. The publicity coordinator then threatened to have the reporter escorted out of the building by the police.

"You desecrated this sacred place," Jordan said.

All he did was make the reporter's career. Getting kicked out was the best story she could have gotten. He had just said “thank you” and went to the next question, she would still be unknown. She ought to buy Penn some Venezuelan bananas.

Can any FReepers tell me why his Haitian trip was controversial, e.g. motivation?

As the father is so is the son.

Would it surprise you to learn that one of those prominent Hollywood communist Jews who sided with Germany until the breaking of that Hitler-Stalin Pact was none other than Leo Penn, the late father of Sean Penn.

Someone should ask him under what law reporters should be jailed when they refer to his Commie pal Hugo Chavez as a DICTATOR?

"You know, I think that you are investing in a culture that I am not interested in. And you should go your way," Penn said to the reporter

LOL - it takes an ego as monstrous as Godzilla to come up with an utterance like that.

It's fascinating in a train-wreck kind of way to see what Hollywood fame and attention create out of non-entities like Penn. Actors are usually under-educated, uninformed and not particularly knowledgeable about anything - their craft consists of playing characters written for them. The job doesn't require skill, brains or hard work - just instinct: how many other professions can be performed so successfully by small children? But fame and attention convince these people of limited intellect and limited experience that they are qualified to make judgments about the sayings and doings of their betters - and that's pretty much everyone who isn't an actor.

Sean is just confused, he needs to be gently reminded of the blessings and freedoms this country provides.

With a lead pipe.

It sounds like he’s working on his application to be the Obamination’s next press secretary.

The only accurate representation of the mental acuity and faculties of this man is contained in a once-cool movie called, "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."

Everything about this man - his humanitarianism, his 'intellectualism', his 'acting' ability, his intelligence in general, is a poor fabrication.

He is an utter waste of air.

July 29, 2006
"Chavez pledged that his country would 'stay by Iran at any time and under any condition,' state television reported. Ahmadinejad said he saw in Chavez a kindred spirit." "'We do not have any limitation in cooperation,' Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying. 'Iran and Venezuela are next to each other and supporters of each other. Chavez is a source of a progressive and revolutionary current in South America and his stance in restricting imperialism is tangible.'":

Ummmm...Politicians? Pro athletes? I can think of more...

Politicians must have oratorical skills of some sort, the ability to negotiate, the ability to get people to support them, the ability to compromise every principle they have, etc. Pro athletes who want to remain pro athletes must be able to analyze their positions and their opponents, understand game strategies, and have the self-discipline to remain superior athletes. Even hobos and street people require survival skills. Acting just requires the ability to give up one's own personality and convincingly take on another, under direction - as I said, even children can do it and often do it better than adult actors.

Penn’s son is was busted for drugs. Maybe he can give dad an overdose. It certainly would be a very good riddance of human garbage.
