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.

good to hear
Congrats, Jim! And thanks, Greta, for taking a stand.
Good for you, Greta.
Will obamma be attending this event?
Very admirable tact.
I’m with ya Gretta!
Good deal. Greta has integrity.
I like Gretta and now I like her a smidgen more.:)
Yay Greta....and FR....once again!
With this decision you've just shown more courage than ~95% of the wastes of space in Congress.
We got rid of TV over four years ago, so this surprises me. She was a flaming liberal when last I saw her. Has she sold her soul or has she “evolved”? One never knows for sure.
Good for Greta!
Dear Greta: Thank you.
We stand with Greta!
Greta may be leaning a little more conservative these days. It had to be eye opening for her to interview intelligent ladies like Sarah Palin, and then deal with the likes of Washerwoman Schultz.
Good for Greta! Any journalist with any decency or honor would take a stand too. I guess they have no mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc. It is already evident they have no self respect.
I also Tweeted a dozen or more media personalities, including Greta seeking comment.
Greta is the only one to say anything about the dinner. She didn't answer me, but she made her statement tonight on GretaWire.
Greta has also been very kind to Michele Bachmann.
