Sarah sez

One in a series that takes a look at some of the zany and madcap things said by Sarah Palin

"There's a little bug inside of me which wants to get the FCC to say to Fox and to MSNBC, 'Out. Off. End. Goodbye.' "

"It would be a big favor to political discourse; to our ability to do our work here in Congress; and to the American people, to be able to talk with each other and have some faith in their government and, more importantly, in their future,"

Oopsy-daisy... that wasn't Palin but rather West Virginia Senator Jay Rockefeller commenting upon a subject for which the FCC has no control as both Fox and MSNBC are on cable.

And is that a reporter or one of Rockefeller's staffers over his left shoulder who is darting her eyes around trying to gage the reaction to the dung flying out of this guy's mouth? We're going with staffer.

What Rockefeller isn’t telling you is his wife Sharon Percy Rockefeller is the Chief executive officer of WETA-TV in Washington, D.C. a tax payer funded P.B.S. affiliate that Senator Rockefeller voted just to keep funding.

Mrs. Rockefeller who works for PBS is making $447,166.00 – how that for working at a so-called non profit?

The world would be better of w/o MSNBC or Fox. People should read instead.

The world would be better off without many things, but those providing us with political views, (right or left) not found in the newspaper, providing alternative views are at the tail end of what should be considered left out for the better of public good.

Reading is good, so is interaction on blogsites.

I could go off on a rant here about things of which we would be better off, but.....

Anyway Steve, regardless of whether I agree with msnbc or whether fox is fair or balanced, their first amendment right cannot be challenged by the likes of a pointy headed intellectual like the Senator from West Virginia. What a condescending turd!

Those in a position of power have an obligation to watch what they say. Even if he later said that he didn't mean the government should take action, the damage is done, it looks like a threat, because he is a Senator. It's a little like Tony Soprano suggesting loudly in your presence that the neighborhood would be a better place if you donated to the Catholic school fund raiser. Maybe it would, but how would it sound?
