Why Louis C.K. Dropped Out of RTCA Dinner (Free Republic mentioned)
Politico ^ | Friday, March 9, 2012 | Dylan Byers

Posted on 03/09/2012 6:55:14 PM PST by kristinn

Amid pressure from conservatives, the comedian Louis C.K. is pulling out of hosting duties at this year's Radio and Television Correspondents Association dinner.

Fox News's Greta Van Susteren yesterday called on journalists to boycott the dinner because of offensive and sexually explicit remarks Louis C.K. had made about Sarah Palin. The news that Louis C.K. would be hosting the dinner was criticized on Monday by Media Research Center president Brent Bozell and picked up the same day by the Free Republic's Kristinn Taylor, who later tweeted the news to Van Susteren.

Louis C.K.'s agent told CNN's Peter Hamby that the comedian was pulling out because "he just didn't want to do it anymore."

Taylor calls this afternoon with a different interpretation: "That's a cop-out," he said. "But it's a polite, professional way of withdrawing."

Taylor also said C.K. should never have been invited in the first place, and attributed the invitation to the liberal bias of the Washington media.

"It's because he said those things about Sarah Palin that the D.C. media thought it was OK," he argued. "If he had said those things about Michelle Obama, no way in hell he would've been invited."

Notify the media at once! (Oops--they ARE the media)

But seriously: nice job. They CAN be shamed...but it must be SO over the top that the transgression has to be inarguable, as this was.

Kristinn - great work! And good on Greta for her support as well - I read what she wrote on Gretawire last night. I was surprised - she minced no words in her blasting of LCK (and rightfully so).

Gratifying victory for our side (they seem so rare)!

I'm still waiting for the backlash of Hussein Obama calling me and several million other tea party people a offensive word.
He's called us that offensive word several times since '08. The latest about six days ago.

Corner them in a fairly small corral such as this and there is no logical escape.

It’s like taking a city block by block.

Those with eyes and ears yet unseared may be positvely influenced. Others without hope of enlightenment miss and fall by the wayside.

In some respects, it’s a war of attrition- but in the larger sense it’s simply a division of the sheep from the goats.

Good work, press on FRiend!

Someone should tweet or email him about this - he’ll love it! Next to Breitbart, Bozell’s always been a favorite of mine :-)

Kidding, I think?

I gave him credit in my writings and to the Politico reporter. The problem is Bozell buried the RTCA dinner outrage in an article about the Limbaugh-Fluke imbroglio. It should have been a stand alone piece.

Precisely.

Here’s a link to a pretty funny article on the Politico site called “Mitt Romney Fights Loser Label”.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0312/73809.html

You know it’s bad when Politico is giving you tips on how to improve :-)))) Seriously, though, it’s about putting lipstick on a pig - being even phonier and more disingenuous (which is a big part of the problem we conservatives already have with Mittens!).
