So there’s at least one journalist who got invited to the 68th annual Radio and Television Congressional Correspondents’ Dinner who wasn’t an abject hypocrite.
Greta Van Sustern is probably literally the ONLY one who has any integrity whatsoever, however:
Free Republic Gets Results! Fox’s Greta to Boycott Media Dinner Over Palin Sex Slurs Comic
Thursday, March 8, 2012 | Kristinn
Fox News host Greta Van Susteren announced this eveningthat 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 year’s Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner is “comedian” Louis C.K. Comedian? I don’t 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 isn’t 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 dinnerpublished 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.
It is astonishing: Sandra Fluke – who was too poor to afford birth control – has been jetting all over the country to be adoringly interviwed as a “victim of Rush Limbaugh’s bigotry” by the very same people who will be going to an event featuring a man who said garbage that was a THOUSAND TIMES WORSE about Sarah Palin than ANYTHING Rush Limbaugh ever said.
Barack Obama personally called Sandra Fluke – because the Armageddon that will occur when Iran gets the bomb is clearly not worth bothering with – after Rush Limbaugh mocked her as a “slut” because she demands that other people have to pay for her to have sex. But he is all to happy to support the million dollar donation of Bill Maher, who similarly called Sarah Palin a “cunt” and a “dumb twat.”
Instead of calling it the “Radio and Television Congressional Correspondents’ Dinner” let’s just call it what it is: “the Joseph Goebbels Media Meal.”
Liberals are the most dishonest hypocrites on the planet today.
