Skip to comments.Free Republic Gets Results! Fox's Greta to Boycott Media Dinner Over Palin Sex Slurs Comic
Posted on 03/08/2012 4:55:07 PM PST by kristinn
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.

Thank You Greta! You have integrity and will speak up. Upward and onward.
Thank You Greta Van Susteren for standing up for what you believe and for what most of us have had a hard time finding in the meida
Good for Greta. I don’t want to say too much, because I don’t want to get her into trouble. But she is constantly acting as a real newswoman should act, one of the few who still get honest news out there where people can see it, and to hell with the ruling ideology or the approval of the Washington cocktail circuit.
Louis C.K. Regrets Harsh Comments About Sarah Palin (But Not Enough To Not Make A Few More)
” I do believe if she got elected, shed really Hitler up the place.”
Well done. Whatever happened to funny comedians? This batch is just plain vulgar. And people pay to hear it. Dense.
Gretta, thank you for keeping it classy!
Thanks, Greta! You are a woman of integrity.
This guy is such a loser. Seriously, how may shows has this moron been on that wound up canceled?
He obviously doesn’t know many words that aren’t just four letters....
Way to go!
well done Greta if only more in the MSM would actually have the guts you do and show some class as well.
Is it too much for our news to not be a biased news, sadly today and the last few years it does seem so.
I have a ton of respect for Greta Van Susteren. I may not always agree with her point of view but she always has integrity and she a very intelligent hard working individual.
anyone have a list of the other “journalist” attending? I may want to send them a note.
I heard the clips of this clown on the radio the other day (lots of bleeps) and thought I was listening to a mentally retarded Dice-wannabe.
God bless Greta!
I’m glad to read this about Greta. She’s earned my respect over the years, and this just adds to it.
Greta Van Susteren has become, for me, the shining light of all the so-called journalists at Fox News. Her work has evolved over the years into the most professional, consistent and even-handed segment on the Fox News network.
She had an exclusive interview last night with Bibi Netanyahu. Hers was the only news outlet by which he consented to be interviewed. She often secured interviews with Sarah Palin at a time when Governor Palin was justifiably avoiding news media. Strong conservative newsmakers trust Van Susteren to treat them fairly, an expectation that is sadly lacking even amongst most of the other Fox news personalities. She asks thoughtful questions, gives her guests plenty of time to answer them without interruption, listens with great concentration, and asks follow-up questions based on what the guest actually says, rather than reverting to some pre-written script running in her head while the guest is speaking.
Thank you for taking a stand on this, Greta. As a conservative, and especially as a woman, I appreciate your uncompromising stand.
I heart Greta!
This is great!
Real gals gotta stick together!
God Bless You Greta!
