John Gibson and Michelle Malkin Whip Up Frenzy Over Rosie O'Donnell and ABC
Newshounds – Reported by Deborah March 30, 2007
Bill O'Reilly started a campaign last night to have Rosie O'Donnell fired from The View, ABC, for expressing her opinions on Iran and 9/11. This morning at 6 AM, Donald Trump was already quoting O'Reilly almost verbatim on The Imus Show demanding that ABC fire O'Donnell. So of course, John Gibson continued the fire Rosie campaign today with noxious Michelle Malkin who added Barbara Walters to the FOX News list of the currently unclean who must be punished. 3/30/07
Malkin thought that ABC should be held accountable for O'Donnell's comments but claimed there were too many like minded people in ABC management to do anything about Rosie O'Donnell. Gibson speculated that ABC wants O'Donnell to say these things.
Malkin said that people watch O'Donnell because she's like " a freak show" adding that it irked her that Rosie got applause after her comments. A clip of O'Donnell hanging upside down for back problems was flashed periodically on the screen,
Malkin complained that poor Elizabeth Hasslehoff was getting bullied by O'Donnell and Barbara Walters reputation was being eroded because of their association.
comment: If you change all the gender specific pronouns to masculine, change ABC to FOX and replace the Malkins with O'Reillys, the above summary would be a perfect description of The O'Reilly Factor Any name would be an appropriate replacement for Hasslehoff and Walters. Of course, Hannity would work well too.
And in case you missed the video clip in question, watch it again here.
