Another Journalist Put Her Foot In Her Mouth

Is it just me or has the world gone MAD? FOX News contributor Liz Trotta thought it would be a good idea to joke about killing Sen. Barack Obama, since Hilliary Clinton busted the seal on the idea with the RFK comment, I guess it's fair game to joke about. If anyone had made a comment about assassinating the current president, albeit jokingly, they would probably be arrested immediately. The same respect and courtesy should be afforded to all elected governmental official. I do not like the way Bush has run this country in the ground, but I would not advocate that anything happen to him other than being impeached.

Back to Trotta, if you watch the segment closely you will see that this was not a mere slip of the tongue, and that she is clearly not an Obama supporter. As I have said before when remarks have been made about doing bodily harm (lynchings, etc.), we should not let one comment like this slide. Not one. But since it looks like she'll get away with it, please no more assassination remarks or jokes on national television! Ms. Trotta did apologize for her comments, but there was really no sincerity in my opinion. What do you think?




Here is the apology issued by Trotta

People seem to be getting really good at the non-apology apology.

I've written about this on other sites, but there has been a lot of media proposing the assassination or attempted assassination of Sen. Obama--some directly, some indirectly through comparisons to RFK and JFK. Hillary and Trotta weren't the first to bring this up, but rather are continuing something that's been going on for months.

I've never seen this type of thing before, and it's really creepy. You're right in the comparisons to W.. There's that scene in Farhenheint 911 where Michael Moore interviews the guy who made political comments against W. while working out at his gym, and was immediately investigated by the FBI to see if he might have wanted to assassinate him.

X. Dell,

I am hearing that Obama is getting regular threats from disgruntled citizens across the land. A lot of people don't think he deserves to be in the position he is in. I mean, how dare an African run for the presidency. People like Trotta and Clinton encourage these sentiments by making statements that basically threaten this man's wellbeing. Shame on people like you that who should no better. I know you want to win, but at what cost?

I'm sorry but these "uh oh", I apologize for saying something soooooo stupid things are getting ridiculous.

What this woman said should keep her off the air permanently, in my opinion. That's just insane.

RC,

There is just something wrong with something like this being able to go on and yet no one seems outraged in the least. Hopefully Obama will be safe.

so you're going to complain about FOX News and not worry about Obama's racism or his birth certificate?

typical democrat

Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also [url=twitter.com/iuyjopg]Viagra Sales Market[/url] you can find on our sites.
Generic [url=http://fovunec.freehostia.com]Ordering Viagra to Canada[/url] is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
