I agree that's something to be excited about. You know when Danny Schechter's sexism was called out repeatedly, he closed down comments. And if you called him out for his sexism -- as many community members did -- he would e-mail you ranting and raving. Did you know when you left a comment that some crackhead response, filled with abuse, would arrive in your inbox? So he shut down comments because he can't take the fact that people know he's a sexist pig.
You should read his e-mails to Ruth sometime, they reek of sexism. He's just a pig. A pure pig.
Media Channel's supposed to be a watchdog. Really all it appears to be is a locker room for the Clarence Thomases of the left.
It's really amazing how silent the left is about the attack Nir Rosen launched on Lara Logan (saying she deserved to be sexually assaulted).
It's amazing until you remember you've heard it before, the silence. Remember? The Journolist, when published, explained it. When one of their own in the circle jerk is under attack, don't say anything, don't feed into it, if we don't comment the story will die off!
So The Nation, Salon, Mother Jones and Harper's magazine avoid the Nir Rosen story because they've published him. (Laura Flander's post at The Nation is from commentary on her own show.)
And they think as long as the remain silent, the story dies.
Here's what really happens, their silence encourages the rapist mentality Nir Rosen felt comfortable voicing in public -- that a woman has it coming.
There is no honor, there are no ethics. They are whores. They will show up to decry a Republican saying this but they will ignore it from their own. And women will suffer for it.
It's disgusting and it's why I can't stand these whores anymore. They're liars and they're disgusting and their willing to put women's safety at risk just to protect yet another man. It's disgusting.
Don't be part of the silence, fight back and call it out.
