  • Bristol Palin: Mr. President, When Should I Expect Your Call?

    Fox News ^ | March 19, 2012 | Miss Bristol Palin
    You don’t know my telephone number, but I hope your staff is busy trying to find it. Ever since you called Sandra Fluke after Rush Limbaugh called her a slut, I figured I might be next. You explained to reporters you called her because you were thinking of your two daughters, Malia and Sasha. After all, you didn’t want them to think it was okay for men to treat them that way: “One of the things I want them to do as they get older is engage in issues they care about, even ones I may not agree with them...
  • New Huckabee Radio Show Moves In on Limbaugh's Turf

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | 03/19/12 | Christopher S Stewart
    After decades as a dominant force in talk radio, Rush Limbaugh could be in for his biggest fight yet. But the threat isn't from activist groups who dislike his conservative politics. It is from one of his own: former Republican governor of Arkansas and onetime presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee. Starting April 9, Mr. Huckabee, a Fox News Channel commentator, will go head-to-head with Mr. Limbaugh in a syndicated radio program airing in the noon to 3 p.m. Eastern time, weekday slot.

    The Washington Times affiliated radio program America's Morning News spoke with former White House Communications Director Anita Dunn, who is now a managing Director at the Washington D.C. based PR firm SKD Knickerbocker, on Sunday. She refused to answer questions regarding concerns about how much of a role the White House played in Georgetown University law student Sandra Fluke's appearance before a House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee to testify about Georgetown Law Center's lack of contraception coverage. Ms. Dunn also did not answer questions about if she thought HBO's Bill Maher was out of line when he called former...

    Alexandra Pelosi debuted a video she made for HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" last night. The video shows multiple welfare recipients in New York City proclaiming they were at the welfare office to get their "Obama bucks" and that they supported Obama because he "gives me stuff." Pelosi reported that people at the HBO headquarters in New York had said to her "you can't show this" even though just last week the ran a controversial video showing Mississippi voters saying inflammatory things against the president.

    Bill Maher: "If Irish Americans can manage to celebrate their heritage in just one day then Southerners should be able to do also. That's right, instead of spending the whole year flying the Confederate flag and saying 'the South will rise again,' you get just one day. We'll call it 'St. Cracker's Day.'"

  • UPDATE: Hagan petition to get Limbaugh off Youngstown airwaves gaining support

    Vindicator ^ | Youngstown Vindicator
    YOUNGSTOWN State Rep. Robert F. Hagan of Youngstown, D-60th, is circulating a petition to remove conservative talker Rush Limbaugh from Youngstown radio airwaves. Limbaugh, whose nationally-syndicated show is heard on more than 600 stations, is heard locally on WKBN-AM (570). The radio host has come under fire after calling a George Washington University law student derogatory names after she testified to congressional Democrats in support of national health care policies that would require employers to offer group health insurance that covers birth control. Two radio stations, one in Massachusetts and the other in Hawaii, have already dropped Limbaugh’s show as...

    Two radio stations have dropped The Rush Limbaugh Show from their schedules following the firestorm surrounding his offensive attack on law student Sandra Fluke on his show last week. KPUA in Hilo, Hawaii, and WBEC in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, announced today that they would no longer carry the show after the right-wing radio host called Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke a ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute’ over her support of President Barack Obama’s new contraception plan. Limbaugh made a rare public apology on Saturday in the wake of the uproar caused by his comments, which led to several advertisers pulling out of the...

    Every once in a while, despite our political differences, people of good faith can come together in agreement on major issues. Exhibit A is this New York Times op-ed by the unfortunately named Stanley Fish whom Wikipedia assures me is someone of some import though for what reason I really can’t tell. From Professor Fish: "If we think about the Rush Limbaugh dust-up from the non-liberal — that is, non-formal — perspective, the similarity between what he did and what Schultz and Maher did disappears. Schultz and Maher are the good guys; they are on the side of truth and...

    Alexandra Pelosi appeared on Real Time tonight with two purposes: to defend the video she filmed of voters in Mississippi that aired on the show last week, and to air a brand-new video that Bill Maher admitted would probably anger liberals in the same way the aforementioned video angered conservatives. For her new video, Pelosi spoke to African-American welfare recipients in New York. There was far less laughter during this piece than the Mississippi one (which Pelosi pointed out after it played), but there were still some revealing moments contained therein. One of the men lined up outside the welfare...
  • Palin Backs Breitbart's 'The Vetting,' DC Media Freaks Out

    Breitbart.com ^ | 3/16/12 | Joel B. Pollak
    The mainstream media in Washington, DC is apoplectic after Gov. Sarah Palin backed Andrew Breitbart's project, "The Vetting." In an exclusive article for Breitbart.com entitled "Breitbart Is Here," Palin had endorsed Breitbart's effort to vet Barack Obama, his Republican rivals--and the mainstream media itself: Breitbart’s most immediate mission was the belated vetting of Barack Obama. This obviously is an issue very near and dear to my heart. During the ’08 campaign, the same media that reported breathlessly about an old used tanning bed I purchased to get some sun during the dark Alaskan winter, couldn’t be bothered to investigate Barack...

    So, to answer my own question from this afternoon — no, I guess we’re not quite done with this yet. And to repeat a point I made in that same post, for politicos and their apparatchiks, this “debate” is of course 99 percent about partisanship. When asked about Rush’s comments, Romney tersely said, “It’s not the language I would have used.” When asked about Maher this afternoon, though, he unloaded: In an appearance on the Sean Hannity radio show, Romney said, “Frankly, what Bill Maher said, and I finally read the transcripts, I was offended, outraged that a person would...

    Wonder how the left was able to mobilize so quickly on the Rush Limbaugh boycott? According to the architect behind it, Media Matters online strategy director Angelo Carusone, the project was actually created in 2009, but stayed inactive until the Sandra Fluke controversy boiled over (via Legal Insurrection): I started Stop Rush in 2009, 2010, and when I went to register the domain, I saw that Rush owned StopRush.com…. The Beck work was working, and I kind of froze the Rush work, and experimented with it a little, to get a sense of who Rush’s advertisers were and what their...

    Say what you want about Bill Maher; he is not a stupid man. But in an interview today with ABC's Jake Tapper, he sure sounds like one: Bill Maher: The bit I did about Palin using the word c—, one of the biggest laughs in my act, I did it all over the country, not one person ever registered disapproval, and believe me, audiences are not afraid to let you know. Because it was a routine where that word came in at just the right moment. Context is very important, (snip) stand-up comedy is the final frontier of free speech.

    JAKE TAPPER: Bill, thanks for doing this. I just wanted to make sure that as I cover this debate about appropriate language and such, I’m not excluding any points you think should be made. BILL MAHER: I don’t really know all the “points,” but as I said on my show last Friday, I’m a pottymouth, not a misogynist. TAPPER: So with all the criticism of Rush Limbaugh for his comments about the Georgetown Law student, conservatives claim that there’s a double standard, with President Obama, Democrats and the media far more tolerant of offensive language when wielded by liberal or...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Folks, again I tell you: These two polls, the New York Times and the Washington Post on Monday of this week, have thrown this White House for a loop. I have sound bites coming in mere moments where members of the State-Controlled Media are now attacking the intelligence of people who are polled and asking, "Are the polls broken?" (laughing) We get some State-Controlled Media polls that look bad for Obama and they run stories, "Are these polls broken? Are the people in the polls stupid?" They have what they think is the smartest, slickest, most-polished president...

    Did I miss the deadline for alternative opinions on Sandra Fluke? What with liberal women constantly talking about their vaginas suddenly pretending to be offended by the word "slut," and conservatives pretending to be as pussified as liberals about the nasty names they've been called, I never got an answer to the most pressing question about Sandra Fluke: Who are you again? Was Fluke dragged out of obscurity after the women of America took a vote and chose her as our spokeswoman? Please, Sandra, we know how deeply private, publicity-shy and terribly busy with law school you are, but we...

    Bill Maher spoke with ABC’s Jake Tapper about whether there was a double standard for liberals using offensive language towards conservative women. In the interview, the HBO host responded to the criticism over his obscene remarks about former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, and defended calling her the c-word. Tapper asked Maher, in the wake of the controversy over Rush Limbaugh‘s comments about Sandra Fluke, whether there was a double standard, with the media accepting offensive language when it is used by liberals against conservative women. “Is that a fair comparison? You have certainly used offensive words to describe some politicians...

In fact, the secondary boycott was initiated by and driven by Media Matters, which had a “Stop Limbaugh” campaign on the shelf waiting to be used, and was executed by Angelo Carusone, Director of Online Strategy for Media Matters.
