RUSH: I was here at the tail end of show prep. I was near the end of the accumulation phase and just about to begin the organizational phase, which is around 11:15 every morning.
Snerdley comes in and says, "Are you sleeping well?"
I said, "Yeah, I always do."
"Well, I don't know how you're doing it."
I said, "What are you talking about?"
"Don't you know you're the one that got Gregory fired? You got David Gregory fired! How can you sleep well?"
"What do you mean, I got David Gregory fired?"
"You're the one who started talking about ratings. Up until you started talking about how they have no ratings and doesn't anybody care, they didn't care, and it was hunky-dory and everything was fine and dandy. Now look! Now you've got the CBS CEO out there talking about how they gotta get rid of the overnight ratings because you can't get an accurate picture now, gotta get ratings for a week. And now NBC gets rid of Gregory for no ratings? You're the only guy who ever pointed it out. You're the only guy who cares. Don't you feel guilty?"
I said, "I hadn't even thought of that."
Snerdley thinks that I should be feeling guilty. I read over the weekend, speaking of Gregory, the real reason he got fired. You know what it is, folks? He turned on Hamas. He became just too supportive of Israel, and this upset a lot of people in the executive suite at NBC. But I read this. I wish I could remember where I read it.
It was on some blog, and it was a learned analyst, and his theory here that that Gregory in recent weeks had become very, very, very, very supportive of Israel, and that that's why he was let go. Snerdley thinks it was me pointing out that he had no ratings, and it was okay that he had no ratings (chuckles) until I mentioned it and they had to deal with it. That's right? That's pretty much what you think?
I wish I could get fired with a $4 million severance.
Pretty close, there are some better places to be fired from than an anchor chair.
Pro basketball or football coaches. College basketball or football coaches. CEO of major companies after you push the company over the cliff.
He will probably get hired by Yahoo News for millions to make “newsy videos” like Katie Couric
I have not seen that weasel in years. Now he is likely to appear on some of the few channels that I do occasionally tune in to.
Thanks a lot Rush.
The LSM believes they should be exempt from paltry things like ratings and earnings, and for the most part, they exist to lose money for some billionaire liberal.
AlGore Jazeera could pick up his contract? Oh wait...they still haven’t paid AlGore...
Well, you have my permission.
Is Snerdley black? Because it’s common in the black culture to blame others who merely report your failings, instead of on your failings themselves
He is, actually lol.
That inaugural ball was one of the best times ever! People came from all over. Gov Huckabee and his band “Capitol Offense” played and we finally got tossed out about 3:00AM
People heard about the Free Republic Ball and came from other balls just to be there with us.
It was a night to be remembered.......
I journeyed from Virginia across the river only to get lost in all the scaffolding at the White House and to never locate the Freeper Stalwarts guarding the silver.
I still have my T Shirt however.
A good time was had by all. It is amazing that the party was fourteen years ago!
No, Doctor Raoul was in prison stripes and Billy J mask. That fellow was from Connecticut. I had his card at one time but not now.
I need to pull out the tape of that ball. We were so hopeful.
