Why the Samantha Bee thing is much worse than Roseanne Barr in three sentences:

If you want to know why what Saman­tha Bee did is much worse than what Roseanne did it can be explained in just three sentences.

  1. Nobody dis­putes that Roseanne Barr put our her now infa­mous tweet about Valerie Jar­rett all by her­self on the spur of the moment with no input from her per­sonal account unre­lated to her TV show.

2. Saman­tha Bee put out her infa­mous lines about Ivanka Trump dur­ing the broad­cast of her show Full Frontal as part of a planned segment.

3. This means the words she spoke were writ­ten with delib­er­a­tion by pro­fes­sional writ­ers, suc­cess­fully passed through Full Frontal’s /​TBS deci­sion mak­ing process and were con­sid­ered suit­able for broad­cast before they were ever spo­ken on the air.

Yet Roseanne Barr’s apol­ogy for her spon­ta­neous tweets was rejected and her #1 rated com­edy can­celled on the spot while Saman­tha Bee’s apol­ogy for her delib­er­ately planned seg­ment broad­cast nation­ally was accepted on the spot with­out penalty to either her or any involved in the deci­sion mak­ing process that resulted in the seg­ment in question.

This is why nobody buys the virtue sig­nal­ing of the Har­vey Wein­stein media/​left It sim­ply doesn’t play out­side of their enclaves anymore.

Update: Some­how two words were dropped from the last sen­tence, fixed (Thanks to Vek­tor for the catch) and one more thing hit me.

There is a live audi­ence for the tap­ing of Full Frontal. Did any­one in the audi­ence object to the Ivanka stuff? I’m not aware of any boo­ing or peo­ple walk­ing out or react­ing neg­a­tively to it when it was done? What does that say about that sup­pos­edly woke #metoo audience?

If you want to know why what Samantha Bee did is much worse than what Roseanne did it can be explained in just three sentences.

  1.  Nobody disputes that Roseanne Barr put our her now infamous tweet about Valerie Jarrett all by herself on the spur of the moment with no input from her personal account unrelated to her TV show.

2.  Samantha Bee put out her infamous lines about Ivanka Trump during the broadcast of her show Full Frontal as part of a planned segment.

3.  This means the words she spoke were written with deliberation by professional writers, successfully passed through Full Frontal’s / TBS decision making process and were considered suitable for broadcast before they were ever spoken on the air.

Yet Roseanne Barr’s apology for her spontaneous tweets was rejected and her #1 rated comedy cancelled on the spot while Samantha Bee’s apology for her deliberately planned segment broadcast nationally was accepted on the spot without penalty to either her or any involved in the decision making process that resulted in the segment in question.

This is why nobody buys the virtue signaling of the Harvey Weinstein media/left It simply doesn’t play outside of their enclaves anymore.

Update:  Somehow two words were dropped from the last sentence, fixed (Thanks to Vektor for the catch) and one more thing hit me.

There is a live audience for the taping of Full Frontal.  Did anyone in the audience object to the Ivanka stuff?  I’m not aware of any booing or people walking out or reacting negatively to it when it was done?  What does that say about that supposedly woke #metoo audience?
