The MSM’s flexible outrage

The longer the Rush business goes on, the more we discover mainstream media’s chivalrous outrage over an insult to a woman is apparently rather… flexible:

The headliner of this year’s Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner is “comedian” Louis C.K. Comedian? I don’t 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 isn’t just Governor Palin he denigrates. He denigrates all women and looks to the crowd to laugh.

So let me get this straight, for over a week the we have seen story after story of feigned outrage over the insult to a “lady” yet these same Radio and Television Correspondents decide to feature a headliner famous for these lines:

Louis C.K. says of Palin: “her f*** retard making c***” and “the baby that just came out of her f**** disgusting c***.”

To Palin: just “stick your t** in its mouth and shut up.”

And here is more: ”…her f***** retard making c****”

Need more to convince you? Here is what he says on twitter:

“I want to rub my father’s c*** all over Sarah Palin’s fat t***”

The left’s and the media’s willingness to shoot themselves in the foot never ceases to amaze me.

Update: C.K. is out, but not by decision of the Correspondents dinner, he withdrew himself, after all if the Correspondents dinner took action against a comedian who actually makes a living on misogyny vs a talk show host you used ill advised words and apologized their friends in Hollywood might not take it well.

OMG Woman buys airtime on Rush’s show for new Business

How can this be?

“As a small business owner, defender of capitalism, and advocate of free speech, I am putting my money where my conservative, free-market principles are. TWITCHY.COM is proud to join companies across the country that advertise with talk show giant Rush Limbaugh and his Excellence In Broadcasting network. Today, we will begin running ads on the website.

and remember Michelle Malkin is not just a successful reporter, writer and businesswoman but a successful reporter, writer and businesswoman of color.

Perhaps like the Atlantic they will make fun of her over the size of her staff. Perhaps Soledad O’Brien, when she is done with her research on professor Bell will have some profound facts to add (and if they aren’t facts yet, someone will update wikipedia to make them appear so.

BTW her new company if Twitchy which aggregates tweets and related posts. It will be a fine addition to Rush’s lineup of advertisers.

I bet Sleep Train is jealous.

Update: Here is the Sleep train story:

Limbaugh rebuffed Sleep Train’s request that the controversial radio host resume his duties as a paid spokesman for the company.

but but Rush is on his last legs, the left told us so!

MSM: “Why doesn’t MItt Romney like us?”

There are some pronouncement that are just so nonsensical that one can’t believe that they are being expressed by an intelligent person.

Today on Morning Joe they talked about Mitt Romney’s frosty relationship with the press. The panel noted that it’s a very bad idea for Romney to avoid cultivating the press.

Mitt Romney might have a lot of problems as a candidate, but he should cozy up to the media, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

the media that wouldn’t vet Barack Obama?

the media that tried to blame Sarah Palin for the Gabby Giffords shooting?

the media that lionized the Occupy movement and refused to report on the crime, including rape within?

the media that still misrepresent Andrew Breitbart and the Shirley Sherrod business

and his $100,000 challenge

the media that ignored and/or celebrated the snuff stuff on George Bush

the media that STILL doesn’t report on Molly Norris for fear of offending islam

the media that has attacked Rush for a week but didn’t find new Afghan “guidelines” newsworthy

or the journo-list scandal

or fast and furious

or Pigford

the media that misrepresented the tea party at every chance they got

the media that ignored the global warming scandals

I could go on for a very long time.

Now I’ll make one caveat here. Joe Scarborough and Mika openly express their opinions, a person who talks to them knows where they are coming from so it changes the dynamic, but they are not the people following the candidates around.

There are only two types of republicans that the MSM approve of: those who will attack the GOP and those who are safely dead.

Romney may have a lot of faults, but to suggest that a bad relationship with the MSM is one of them is nonsense. He is smart enough to know that once the more conservatives candidates are finally eliminated anything resembling friendly or unbiased coverage will cease and the MSM will be full tilt for Barack Obama.

The sooner a GOP candidate acknowledges that reality the sooner they can adjust their campaign to deal with it.
