Oh the intolerant tolerance brigade...
Like just about every news outlet in the country, NBC 15 in Madison featured the latest on the Duck Dynasty controversy involving the show's star Phil Robertson and comments he made about homosexuality to GQ magazine.
Robertson was suspended by A&E for his remarks that some considered bigoted and intolerant. But in NBC 15's coverage of the story, morning anchor Christine Bellport managed to insert her own biases and bigotry into the coverage.
BELLPORT: I mean I'm sorry to say. When you look at the guy, I'm not surprised with the comments he made. You know what I mean? I'm not surprised. And I don't really know why anyone else is surprised.
SHORTINO: Have you seen the show?
In the wake of Bellport's comments, NBC 15 posted an apology on their Facebook page that reads:
The comments made today on The Morning Show by anchor Christine Bellport regarding the Duck Dynasty story do not reflect the views of NBC 15 or the NBC 15 newsroom. NBC 15 News Director Russ Bruhn has spoken with Christine about her comments. Keeping with company policy, this is a matter that will be handled internally. We understand the importance of basing our reporting and our anchor comments on facts and not opinions. NBC 15 apologizes for the comments and regrets that Christine offended viewers and Mr. Robertson.
Robertson's comments have set off a firestorm about the First Amendment, religious liberty, tolerance and intolerance, and the limits of free speech in American culture.
Now that’s weird. Most folks think the anchor is about as useful as one in the middle of a desert.
I see a bright future for her at MSNBC.
I can tell Christine Bellport looks like an airhead without even seeing her picture.
Profile we much!
Everyone, e-mail her @ email@example.com and tell her what she looks like.
She sees a bigot every day in the mirror.
Typical left wing bigot. We should be used to this. She must be engaged.
Ms Bellport looks like, and thinks like, a bigot.
What NBC 15 was really saying is “There are a lot of hunters in Wisconsin, including duck hunters, and we want them to keep watching this station.”
What they said to Christine was “Understand we’re going to have to issue some kind of statement. But don’t worry about it.”
Well, she IS blonde . . .
I just saw a trailer for a movie with Julia “Big Mouth” Roberts and ugly Meryl Streep. (I’m not prejudging them. I’m not blind.) Streep, in a very bigoted way, tells Roberts’ character “You look like a lesbian.”
They can get away with it but wrongfully accuse others who don’t even do it.
Sounds like her bosses shussed her real quick after the fire storm unleashed on A&E.
N.B.C. bosses, no less.
Yet another liberal exposing THEIR bigotry.
After looking at you Christine, I wouldn’t be surprised if you sleep with monkeys.
What is it exactly that makes Robertson look like a bigot?
He has a beard
He wears camo clothing
He’s a southerner
I guess that’s all you need to know to tell if a person is a bigot.
Morning Show by anchor Christine Bellport looks like a moron.
She is the only bigot.
Pray America is Waking
This is why whenever I’m called a racist, bigot, etc. I merely reply, “I know you are but what am I?” this simplistic, yes, childish response gets undr their thin skin like nothing else. Instead of facing up to their bigotry, they need to project these attitudes on others. Is it because of some superiority complex? Or they’re too cowardly to face up to their own prejudices? Or both?
“She must be engaged.”
No man in his right mind would marry that. /humor
Anyone know her Twitter acct?
Hey, Obama can tell an immigrant by looking at them...
Just another two bit, commie lib “prog” engaging in a little “ racial profiling”.
Pretty funny, I must agree.
If Robertson didn’t wear camo and shot a peace sign I wonder what she would think?
WATCH NBC 15 NEWS.....with low information voter anchor
Well let’s see ... Phil Robertson has a bachelor’s degree in physical Education, a master’s degree in education, taught school for several years, is widely respected as an elder in the church, has a close loving family, and has parlayed his family’s business to the point that their personal fortune is about 400,000,000 dollars. How does Miss Bellport stack up?
Yeah, she could suck start a Harley Davidson.
Bill the pants dropper clinton is probably saying “Hey baby”
It is all about Christian bashing.
In the wake of Bellport’s comments, NBC 15 posted an apology on their Facebook page: Well they apologized,that makes it ok now!!(Sarcasm) These libs think they can say anything,then apologize,and it’s ok.
I’ve always had a problem with this... She made the comments ON THE AIR. The apology should not be made by a nameless, faceless person on their website to what is most likely a much smaller audience. The apology should come from her, on the air, during the same time of day tomorrow that her original comments were made. After that she should be suspended indefinitely since that seems to be the way these matters are dealt with on televsion these days. So glad I don’t work in the media anymore.
SHe’s got a very bad case of Man Hands.
Some say that Christine Bellport looks like a child molester.
And she looks . . .well . .. ugly
Wisconsin News Anchor Thinks Phil Robertson Looks Like A Bigot
The dictionary I used does not have a picture of what a bigot looks like. She must use a diferent one....
From her Station bio “Christine is a proud alum of USC where she was a Political Science major “
Think that says all we need to understand where her comment cam from.......
The irony....it hurts.
Could be Crissy’s Sissie!
That had to tingle his leg!
Bet the drapes don’t match the rug.
National “news” personalities come from LOCAL “news” stations.
Nearly every “news” reader on cable or network news once was a local reporter.
Look at the local reporters in your towns and hold them and their stations accountable for bias.
Sometimes this is obvious, as in this case of the liberal Bellport. Sometimes it isn’t obvious...as in WHAT the reporter or station chooses to report....and what it doesn’t report.
