Wisconsin News Anchor Thinks Phil Robertson Looks Like A Bigot
Right Wisconsin ^ | 12/21/13

Posted on 12/26/2013 8:20:40 PM PST by Impala64ssa

Oh the intolerant tolerance brigade...

Like just about every news outlet in the country, NBC 15 in Madison featured the latest on the Duck Dynasty controversy involving the show's star Phil Robertson and comments he made about homosexuality to GQ magazine.

Robertson was suspended by A&E for his remarks that some considered bigoted and intolerant. But in NBC 15's coverage of the story, morning anchor Christine Bellport managed to insert her own biases and bigotry into the coverage.

BELLPORT: I mean I'm sorry to say. When you look at the guy, I'm not surprised with the comments he made. You know what I mean? I'm not surprised. And I don't really know why anyone else is surprised.

SHORTINO: Have you seen the show?

BELLPORT: No.

In the wake of Bellport's comments, NBC 15 posted an apology on their Facebook page that reads:

The comments made today on The Morning Show by anchor Christine Bellport regarding the Duck Dynasty story do not reflect the views of NBC 15 or the NBC 15 newsroom. NBC 15 News Director Russ Bruhn has spoken with Christine about her comments. Keeping with company policy, this is a matter that will be handled internally. We understand the importance of basing our reporting and our anchor comments on facts and not opinions. NBC 15 apologizes for the comments and regrets that Christine offended viewers and Mr. Robertson.

Robertson's comments have set off a firestorm about the First Amendment, religious liberty, tolerance and intolerance, and the limits of free speech in American culture.

WOW. Finally someone who can tell a bigot just by looking at them. She must be the Kreskin the mnd reader. IF Christine Bellport has such an amazing psychic ability, she could tell me the numbers that'll come up in the next powerball lottery drawing and I'll split my share of the winnings 60/40 in her favor. Hey, 70/30 would that work for her? FACIAL profiling?

Now that’s weird. Most folks think the anchor is about as useful as one in the middle of a desert.

What NBC 15 was really saying is “There are a lot of hunters in Wisconsin, including duck hunters, and we want them to keep watching this station.”

What they said to Christine was “Understand we’re going to have to issue some kind of statement. But don’t worry about it.”

I just saw a trailer for a movie with Julia “Big Mouth” Roberts and ugly Meryl Streep. (I’m not prejudging them. I’m not blind.) Streep, in a very bigoted way, tells Roberts’ character “You look like a lesbian.”

They can get away with it but wrongfully accuse others who don’t even do it.

What is it exactly that makes Robertson look like a bigot?

He’s white
He has a beard
He wears camo clothing
He’s a southerner

I guess that’s all you need to know to tell if a person is a bigot.

This is why whenever I’m called a racist, bigot, etc. I merely reply, “I know you are but what am I?” this simplistic, yes, childish response gets undr their thin skin like nothing else. Instead of facing up to their bigotry, they need to project these attitudes on others. Is it because of some superiority complex? Or they’re too cowardly to face up to their own prejudices? Or both?

Pretty funny, I must agree.

If Robertson didn’t wear camo and shot a peace sign I wonder what she would think?

Well let’s see ... Phil Robertson has a bachelor’s degree in physical Education, a master’s degree in education, taught school for several years, is widely respected as an elder in the church, has a close loving family, and has parlayed his family’s business to the point that their personal fortune is about 400,000,000 dollars. How does Miss Bellport stack up?

In the wake of Bellport’s comments, NBC 15 posted an apology on their Facebook page: Well they apologized,that makes it ok now!!(Sarcasm) These libs think they can say anything,then apologize,and it’s ok.

I’ve always had a problem with this... She made the comments ON THE AIR. The apology should not be made by a nameless, faceless person on their website to what is most likely a much smaller audience. The apology should come from her, on the air, during the same time of day tomorrow that her original comments were made. After that she should be suspended indefinitely since that seems to be the way these matters are dealt with on televsion these days. So glad I don’t work in the media anymore.

National “news” personalities come from LOCAL “news” stations.

Nearly every “news” reader on cable or network news once was a local reporter.

Look at the local reporters in your towns and hold them and their stations accountable for bias.

Sometimes this is obvious, as in this case of the liberal Bellport. Sometimes it isn’t obvious...as in WHAT the reporter or station chooses to report....and what it doesn’t report.
