Psycho Conservative Pundits...

As you may know, lately, the crazies have been extra crazy, and have actually seen some punishment for it.

For example,

Ann Coulter's comments about John Edwards got her column dropped by 9 newspapers, probably more to come.
http://mediamatters.org/items/200703130001

Michael Savage, conservative talk radio psycho, was dropped by the CAA two days after he was signed as a client.
http://mediamatters.org/items/200703020003

After Bill O'Reilly made certain comments about Shawn Hornbeck on The Factor, he was ousted as keynote speaker by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
http://mediamatters.org/items/200702120007

What's next?

Post up your predictions here!


My guess is Rush Limbaugh is gonna get higher than a kite and accidentally say the "n" word. Vegas is giving it 10 to 1 odds. ;)

my prediction is that the Liberal majority in the media will continue to push all conservative thought from view and will anoint the Hilldabeast president, then she'll tax us all into the poor house and then bankrupt the government trying to take care of us all. The Chinese will foreclose and own us.

The good news is that we won't have to worry about terrorism any more. We won't we worth attacking.

Yes, she will probably tax us into the poor house just like her husband did and when the Chinese come calling we'll have a surplus instead of a mega deficit that we have now and we can just pay them. Lets hope they don't come calling tomorrow. I would be much more concerned about that then in the future.

You mean after free speech is TOTALLY destroyed?

How about killing freedom of the press? No that's already done.
Destroying Freedom of assembly? no real power to gain there.
I know freedom of religion, I hope they choose, mormon. Multiple wives for everyone, yeh!!

/sarcasm

Do you think it's good that people are punished for speaking their mind?

You can disagree with them all day if you like, but it's not right to be punished for speaking out, that's censorship clear and simple.

duh, it's not punishment in the real sense. people don't like what they are saying , so they choose to not "buy into their product" aka hate speech. They are legally allowed to say it, but If people don't like it, they can tune it out.

I'm just happy to see that more people are realizing it.

I have a prediction, but not about the pundits. This one is about Alberto Gonzales. He will be let go or resign in the next month.

Tuning out is one thing silencing them is another. Look at Ann's case. I have no idea what she said, it's irrevelant to the point anyway. The point is she said something the 9 papers didn't like so they dropped her writing.
They can do that since they hold the purse strings, that's business. No problem there, but how is that not being punished? Didn't she lose income?

She is still being censored. i.e. say what we want you to say or say nothing. That isn't freedom of speech.

She has every right to say what she wants, good or bad, stupid or not. You have every right to not read or listen to her. No one has the right to silence her voice. It's wrong and, as an American, you should be outraged.

Nobody has stopped her from saying anything, they quit paying her to say it!
Your saying if her employer[s] disagree with the job she does, they don't have a choice in publishing it or not?

It's called a free market, Ask Zumbo...

Interesting.

A liberal calls Dubya (a wartime president in office) stupid, cokehead, criminal, etc... and it's just another day for free speech (which I support, btw).

A conservative says that in today's world she couldn't call Edwards a "faggot" because she'd have to go to rehab and she's the devil, must be consored, etc... Ann's used homo references toward Edwards before, btw - it's her right.

If you don't like what Ann says, don't read her columns or watch her on the tube. I don't like what Al Franken, Katie Couric, Babs Striesand, et al say so I don't read/listen/watch them. I don't wish them harm, although I do mourn our collective loss as Al Franken was a damn funny SOB back before he started to take himself seriously.

Criminal-If he's not, a few members of his staff are...
