Skip to comments.Free Republic Gets Results! Fox's Greta to Boycott Media Dinner Over Palin Sex Slurs Comic
Posted on 03/08/2012 4:55:07 PM PST by kristinn
Fox News host Greta Van Susteren announced this evening that she will be boycotting the 68th annual Radio and Television Congressional Correspondents' Dinner over the selection of a comic to headline the dinner who has repeatedly attacked Sarah Palin using vile sexual terms.
Another pig .and a media association has hired the pig, Louis C.K., to be their headliner for the big media dinner? Really? I am not going. I refuse to go. Everyone in the media should join me in this boycott.
The headliner of this years Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner is comedian Louis C.K. Comedian? I dont 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 isnt just Governor Palin he denigrates. He denigrates all women and looks to the crowd to laugh.
I refuse to show any support for this guy or for the Radio and Television Correspondents Association Dinner Committee who hired him. I think the organization that hired him is just as bad as he is. It is no secret that he denigrates women.
Free Republic brought to prominence the matter of Louis CK hosting the dinner by keeping an original article on the dinner published in Breaking News. The article was picked on Twitter and by several bloggers.
The article picked up on news about the dinner reported by Brent Bozell at Newsbusters. Bozell had mentioned the dinner earlier that day but had buried it in a column about the Rush Limbaugh-Sandra Fluke controversy.
Van Susteren is showing more courage than one would expect, as the 2012 chairman of the RTCA is a Fox D.C. colleague, John L. Wallace III.

Or you can listen to an unedited YouTube recording.
I love it.
Greta, you are a person of fine character. The world needs more people like. Thank you for taking this stand.
Never heard of the jerk until this . . . googled imaged him and sure enough dorky angry looking guy.....Danny Bonaduce crazy type
Greta’s right. They should all boycott. What a terrible “entertainment” choice.
Thank you Greta! As an admirer of Sarah,it is so nice to know that you are sincerely her friend. It also shows that you can see the hypocrisy of the media. Thanks for making my day!
Good for Greta! I respect Greta, she is fair to BOTH sides..she is a Democrat but she is one that I have great admiration for because she is fair.
Good job all!
Posted to FaceBook. I hope more folks do the same. Lets give this more exposure and show the Democrats for the frauds that they are. They don’t care about women or any other group. All that they care about is staying in power to further the socialist agenda and make everyone beholden to government to further increase their power. They (democrats) are control freak abusers.
How can any sane person in the media attend an event MCed by this sleazoid? We have really descended into the gutter as a culture. Greta is only doing what any decent person wouldn’t have to think twice about doing.
Thank you, Greta! Well done, you.
(Adn thank you, kristinn, for your continued coverage of many issues!)
I long for the day when using foul language in public was frowned on and condemned.
Hate is not funny.
Good job, kristinn.
Cheers! great work ..FR is the best forum online..period!
I doubt he 'denigrates' many liberal women... this type usually goes after conservative women.
Thank you for demonstrating your integrity and courage, Greta.
You go, Greta!
Well done, Sir.
I think it would be much better, and more effective, if she would attend and at some time when everyone would hear her, shout out loudly for all in attendance to hear, and rub their noses in, the shameful hypocrisy of the Left on this matter.
Good for her! we really need to make a stink about this and Bill Maher.
It’s time for decent people to take a stand.
And thank you.
I have mentioned previously that I have an upgraded opinion of Greta. Yes, she was a flaming liberal back when the Clinton Impeachment was in progress. I think that she was with CNN at the time. She apparently has seen the light, and became a much more conservative person. It happens. Sorry to say, however, she, like Sarah Palin has an extremely high-pitched, irritating voice. But I have even started recording her shows on Fox. She has an excellent show, and great guests.
I emailed a thank you to gretawire. She emailed back “ I couldn’t sit back. Outrageous. Greta.”
Great comments you made, and I agree with every word!
If it weren’t for Greta I would not be watching Fox at all. For the most part she gives a fair and balanced approach to her interviews and stays on message without reverting to sillyness. One of the few out there today who gives the “news” so to speak without all the fluff. Worthy of respect even when one might not like what she is saying.
Good for her on this matter....let’s hope it’s contageous and a few more do likewise. It would make a statement the more who do this....OR...the more the press reports it.
Finally! Someone who will stand up in the face of profanity against conservatives. It was very brave of Greta to take a stand like this since she really isn’t a conservative. However, she is a woman and realizes that when they call a woman like Sarah horrible things, they are disrespectful of all decent women.
Kudos for FreeRepublic for all that is done to promote good in this world....and it’s noticed!
I respect Greta. This is the only person I can watch now on Fox. Thanks for the post and thank you Greta. BTTT.
Greta, you are a classy Lady...Thank you for standing up for what is right!
Greta seems to have a special place in her heart for Sarah and Todd Palin and their family. They've spent a lot of time together. Greta even rode on the back of Todd's snow machine in Alaska, and hung out with Sarah and her extended family, interviewing Sarah as she cooked moose stew in her kitchen (these videos were aired on her show over a year ago). I think Greta and Sarah Palin are good friends - they sincerely seem to like one another.
Greta's show is one of the best on Fox News these days, IMO.
Thanks for this thread, kristinn, and way to go, Greta!
They just spend their time trying to shame innocent people they disagree with using lies and innuendo.
Good for Greta! She is a patriot!
Thanks Greta !
She has grown a lot in the last few years in clarity and courage.
Her BS meter has become very well attuned.
Beautifully said. Couldn”t add a thing.
You nailed it. I think seeing the horrible treatment of Sarah Palin was Greta’s red pill-blue pill moment. It was so over the top and so irrational that she just couldn’t carry that liberal water anymore. She took the red pill and saw what is really going on and it has made her mad.
Greta has a backbone! God’s power to her. She is one of the journalists I hold up in prayer every night.
well done Greta if only more in the MSM would actually have the guts you do and show some class as well.
Is it too much for our news to not be a biased news, sadly today and the last few years it does seem so.
I watched O’Reilly and Hannity, before Greta. They both devoted a lot of time to the subject of people like Mahre making demeaning comments about women like Sarah Palin.
The one thing that stands out is that NEITHER of them bothered to mention that that asshole Geraldo, on O’Reilly’s program with Michelle Malkin, called her a whore and said if he encountered her on the street he would spit on her.
O’Reilly just sat there and said nothing. NO ONE at FoxNews has ever criticized Geraldo for his blatant name calling and spewed hatred toward Michelle on live TV.
Malkin had been subbing in for O’Reilly occasionally like Ingraham does, but she was either cut off or decided to leave on her own. Thankfully, she still appears as a contributor on several FNC programs.
I wish folks would email/twitter/etc. to FoxNews and point out their hypocrisy in slamming others for demeaning women but ignoring that their own Geraldo did so.
Your posting #37 is excellent and I agree with all of it.
Greta is THE best interviewer on TV, for the reasons that you stated; she allows the person to answer questions and does not always then go to her own pre-prepared questions. Greta lets the interviews evolve. And, she treats liberals and conservatives fairly; not showing her personal biases.
As she and her husband are Scientologists, she shows a lot of discipline in the performance of her profession.
Isn’t Greta (and her hubby) good friends with Bill and Hillary also?
Imagine her, listening to both sides - - - !
Interesting . . .
Choose to believe she remains on the good side of all that co-mingling.
‘Malkin had been subbing in for O’Reilly____’
Sometime back, there was a situation where Michelle Malkin expected O’Reily to defend her. He didn’t, and she was gone from there.
It was probably about what you said Geraldo said.
I have seen her only on Hannity, but I don’t see everything. . .
Like both Greta and Malkin.
Guess you read post 85 - - s i g h . . .
thank you for that info.
I have given up on watching O.R and can’t stomach Hannity so I appreciate that info.
As for Geraldo, the man went to the occupy lot in NY city and said “don’t let those jerks get you down”
Meaning people like us. He did this on FOX time and was caught on camera and her gets away with it and no one from FOX called him out as far as I know.
Geraldo has called a lot of people and used his position to pretend he’s some kind of journalist while pushing his liberal socialist agenda and then he sits there and tells people he’s a republican.
What Geraldo does is to think of his time back in the 60’s and wants to go back to it while thinking he was one of the fathers of that lunatic movement.
BTW I sent mail about it
I completely agree, and Greta has leveraged her cross-examination skills to become one of the best and sharpest interviewers I`ve ever seen.
As someone who keeps her political positions off the front burner and treats all with fairness and respect, Greta is what all journalists should aspire to be.
