Skip to comments.Free Republic Gets Results! Fox's Greta to Boycott Media Dinner Over Palin Sex Slurs Comic

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren announced this evening that she will be boycotting the 68th annual Radio and Television Congressional Correspondents' Dinner over the selection of a comic to headline the dinner who has repeatedly attacked Sarah Palin using vile sexual terms.
Another pig .and a media association has hired the pig, Louis C.K., to be their headliner for the big media dinner? Really? I am not going. I refuse to go. Everyone in the media should join me in this boycott.
The headliner of this years Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner is comedian Louis C.K. Comedian? I dont think so. Pig? yes.
He uses filthy language about women ..yes, the C word and yes, even to describe a woman candidate for Vice President of the United States. It isnt just Governor Palin he denigrates. He denigrates all women and looks to the crowd to laugh.
I refuse to show any support for this guy or for the Radio and Television Correspondents Association Dinner Committee who hired him. I think the organization that hired him is just as bad as he is. It is no secret that he denigrates women.
Free Republic brought to prominence the matter of Louis CK hosting the dinner by keeping an original article on the dinner published in Breaking News. The article was picked on Twitter and by several bloggers.
The article picked up on news about the dinner reported by Brent Bozell at Newsbusters. Bozell had mentioned the dinner earlier that day but had buried it in a column about the Rush Limbaugh-Sandra Fluke controversy.
Van Susteren is showing more courage than one would expect, as the 2012 chairman of the RTCA is a Fox D.C. colleague, John L. Wallace III.

Wow, got to love Greta. She has always been fair to palin and probably sees her as a real human being. Everyone else in media sees palin as a strange should-be-hanging fruit.
I wonder if Kirsten Powers will join Greta in boycotting that stupid dinner?
God bless you GRETA!
I agree with you; and I have also seen her interview Hillary Clinton on very cordial terms. This is what a decent journalist should be able to do; yet she is one of the few who are even-handed. Great job, Greta!
I also sent a long email to Fox regarding the fact that they have ignored the vile insults that Geraldo made live on O’Reilly’s program to Michelle Malkin.
Why are they protecting this racist of Puerto Rican ancestry when is is so obvious in his biases?
Oh, wait... I think I answered that in my previous sentence; he’s a “minority” and must be given a pass.
Good for Greta.
Good job for doing this
Thank you, Greta!
Thanks for the ping!
Excellent. Thank you, kristinn!
“She was a flaming liberal when last I saw her. Has she sold her soul or has she evolved?”
I’m thinking she had a “come-to-Jesus” moment when she became involved with Palin in ‘08, when she observed first-hand what conservatives are and are not. Libs have a point of view based on no knowledge so when they’re exposed to it they can see the truth.
It seems that Greta is always asking good questions in digging for the truth. When she sees it, she knows it.
“I wonder if Kirsten Powers will join Greta in boycotting that stupid dinner?”
Good question. Kirsten, in a way, has been more bold than Greta recently. I mean, Greta is amazing and doing a courageous thing, but she’s “fair and balanced” generally. OTOH, Kirsten is an outspoken tool of the left, and for her to have taken the stand she has regarding speech and name-calling — that’s major.
Yeah to Greta. She loves her some Palin! I’m sure I don’t agree with Greta on everything, but she’s fair and never hated on Palin like the others—even some on the right.
I’ll add my “good for you, Greta” too. She is showing that she has a pair too.
Geraldo is a muppet of the highest order and he gets away with his left wing name calling all the time.
Sat down with a cup of tea this morning after the kids went to school and I saw him on friends saying Maher jokes and that is his job but Rush is a leader of the republicans.
The man is a little weasal and why these shows have him on after his name calling, his radical views and even his lying about Tora bora or even saying he was in a gun fight in Libya when he was clearly not
You know what he reminds me of, a guy who neevr served, wished he had and thus makes his own little stories up to try and come across as a brave warrior
I’ve got another name for him.
Don’t bother asking.
He ain’t worth getting banned.
Greta van S. went up greatly in my estimation when she first started doing stuff with Palin,many months ago, at her Alaska home and elsewhere. She was just so fair and even-handed—she stood out from the rest, and it was obvious she liked and respected Palin.
I honestly have not been a dedicated follower of Greta’s work because of my understanding of her political stance but this just put her in a whole new light for me - U GO GIRL!!
Everybody should go to GretaWire.com and give her props for this move!
Free Republic ROCKS!
