From FoxNews:com — The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation is reviewing complaints from both Americans and Canadians about a Web site columnist who recently described Sarah Palin’s supporters as “white trash,” compared the vice presidential candidate to a “porn actress” and called her daughter’s boyfriend a “redneck” and “ratboy.”
The incendiary column by Toronto-based writer Heather Mallick appeared on the CBC News site on Sept. 5, after the close of the Republican National Convention
Tonight I referred to a journalist as a pig..here is why: I am a strong advocate for the First Amendment…I also think each candidate should be scrutinized carefully: policies, history, experience, judgment etc…but I hate gratuitous insults towards candidates. It is fair and right and smart to challenge candidate…but do we have to get in the gutter? She called supporters of Governor Palin “white trash” — and that is some of the nicer things she said. I won’t bother to repeat the other. Her remarks don’t promote good debate…they don’t expose facts we should consider in evaluating a candidate etc..they just make me think the women journalist is a jerk (pig?) and totally dilutes any credibility she might have. She is just mean…and thus seems to me a fool. Incidentally….and what you might find bizarre….even though I find her a fool, I would defend her right to say the piggy things she says…I don’t admire her….I think she is making herself look enormously small….and she certainly does not seem like a nice person..but I am a strong advocate of the First Amendment. So what is the solution? don’t buy anything she writes..
Thank you Greta. True Journalism is rare today. She certainly showed a lack of class compared to Sarah Palin. What venom and hate they have spewed toward an ordinary woman that comes from an average family, a Mother of 5. It can’t be because she has a career, after all the feminazis would be up in arms if anyone dared suggest they could not have a career and be a Mother. It must be because she is Pro Life and we remember the criticism she took from a columnist for daring to keep her Down’s Syndrome baby! Remember they said she was setting a bad example! It is not likely in any case that Roe vs Wade would be overturned. It was not overturned with Reagan or the two Bushes. So get over it!
MADNESS! I suppose all these true ‘elites’ are showing their true colors of who they are!
Hey Heather..come on down to the farm, I have a friend that will show you how to sooeeeee!
