Daily Insanity

Between Progressive DC and the Nutwork Media Centers, the Poobahs of perverse behavior have pants with no zippers or uncontrollable hands. Or both conditions in many cases.

Is the mantra at 30 Rock and elsewhere “Start grinning and drop the linen!” to any ‘chippie’ that walks into an office?

New York’s TV industry riddled by harassment accusations

If you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere, the song goes.

Evidently, making it in the highly-competitive television news industry in the Big Apple has often meant, for women, enduring sexual harassment at the hands of their male co-workers.

The list of men ousted from high-profile seats of TV power grew this week with NBC’s ousting Wednesday of Today co-anchor Matt Lauer.

But NBC is not alone. All of the major television networks have been hit with similar situations recently, making Lauer just the latest in a line that most recently includes Charlie Rose, who co-hosted CBS This Morning and had his own nightly show, produced by Bloomberg Television and aired on PBS for 26 years. He was dismissed from all three networks two weeks ago after accusations of sexual harassment and assault.

NBC News also last month terminated its contract with political analyst Mark Halperin who also appears on MSNBC. He had been accused of sexually harassing women while he worked at ABC News as political director in the late 1990s and much of the 2000s. Showtime also dismissed Halperin should the premium channel continue its political documentary series The Circus, which he co-hosted.

Back in April, Fox News Channel dismissed Bill O’Reilly, host of the network’s ratings leader The O’Reilly Report after an internal investigation prompted by The New York Times report that Fox and O’Reilly had paid millions to settle several sexual harassment accusations. O’Reilly’s ouster followed the July 2016 resignation of Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, who had also faced allegations of sexual impropriety.

That media scandals would arise in New York makes sense because that is where the major outlets’ headquarters reside and house the executives who have the power to hire and promote staffers, says Mark Feldstein, a broadcast journalism professor at the University of Maryland, College Park. [snip]

Harassment has permeated the media industry for decades, we’ve learned as the accusations have been made public. Many victims have remained quiet over fear of reprisal.

But the recent revelations do not surprise Mark Hertsgaard, an investigative editor for The Nation and author of several books, including Bravehearts: Whistle Blowing in the Age of Snowden. When sent to CBS News in the early ’90s to do a story on 60 Minutes and its kid-glove treatment of President Reagan for Rolling Stone, as the magazine’s then-media reporter, Hertsgaard switched gears upon seeing out-in-the-open harassment.

While talking to a female producer, Hertsgaard saw Mike Wallace walk by and slap the behind of the woman with a rolled-up magazine. “I look at her and my mouth drops open and I said, ‘Does that happen much here?’ She said, ‘You wouldn’t believe.’ That is how I got onto the story,” he said The story was published in May of 1991.

He talked to three women who would not go on the record because show creator Don Hewitt “like Harvey Weinstein, for that matter, was famous for being vindictive and ruining peoples’ careers,” Hertsgaard said.

Wallace, the women told him, repeatedly put his hands on the thighs of his producers during meetings and snapped and unsnapped women’s bra straps from behind “like an eighth-grade boy” would do, Hertsgaard said. [snip]

Betsy West can attest to that. Currently the Fred W. Friendly professor at the Columbia Journalism School in New York, West oversaw 60 Minutes as the senior vice president at CBS News from 1997 to 2005. Her time there coincided with that of Hewitt, who stepped down as executive producer in 2004 (he died in 2009), and Wallace, who became a correspondent emeritus in 2006 before retiring in 2008 (he died in 2012).

“By that time I think a lot of that had abated or I didn’t witness that myself,” she said. “But certainly there were stories about that atmosphere. It did sometimes feel like a boys’ club.” [snip]

Democrat Humor

Everybody knows that Al Franken is a very funny guy. A standup comic, nonpareil whose acts always were showstoppers, at least according to his claque. Therefore when Franken honked Leeann Tweeden’s personal endowments, she should have been ROTFLHAO!

Al Franken Photographed Groping a Woman. Senator’s Response: It ‘Was Intended to be Funny’

Leeann Tweeden, a morning news anchor on a Los Angeles talk-radio station, on Thursday accused comedian Al Franken of groping and kissing her against her will in 2006, two years before Franken was elected to the U.S. Senate.

Her story, posted on the 790 KABC website, includes a photograph of Franken appearing to put his hands on her breasts while she was asleep on a military transport plane.

The alleged assault took place during a December 2006 USO Tour in Afghanistan, where Franken, of “Saturday Night Live” fame, was the headline act. [snip]

“You forcibly kissed me without my consent,” she wrote. Afterwards, she said, “I avoided him as much as possible and made sure I was never alone with him again for the rest of the tour. Franken repaid me with petty insults, including drawing devil horns on at least one of the headshots I was autographing for the troops.”

And when Tweeden returned home, she said she found a photograph of Franken grabbing her breasts over her flak jacket as she slept on the military plane.

“It wasn’t until I was back in the US and looking through the CD of photos we were given by the photographer that I saw this one,” she said — showing the photograph in her article. “I couldn’t believe it. He groped me, without my consent, while I was asleep.” [snip]

“I’m telling my story because there may be others,” she wrote. “I want the days of silence to be over forever.”

Franken, responding to The Daily Beast, was quoted as saying: “I certainly don’t remember the rehearsal for the skit in the same way, but I send my sincerest apologies to Leeann. As to the photo, it was clearly intended to be funny but wasn’t. I shouldn’t have done it.”

It’s OK Al, she wasn’t using her boobs for anything at the time, right? So why not amuse the rest of the people on the plane with some good ole humor and give them a honking. It was all a joke and screw her if she can’t take a joke, right?
Besides, you’re a Progressive Democrat, a member of the elite protected class so why in hell are you apologizing, schmuck?

New name for you Al, Senator Putzpunim.

Open Borders and your Life

You might want to take note of what is happening in England. This is over and beyond the next election which probably will bring the Labor Party to power and an avowed Communist/Marxist to the position of Prime Minister. He stated he will rid the country of capitalism. He might not get a chance.

The open borders of the EU changed the makeup of the local governance.
Here’s what has already happened to England within a few years of opening their borders without any entry control.

How the British have passively succumbed to the Muslim invasion:

  • Mayor of London … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Birmingham …. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Leeds … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Blackburn … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Sheffield …. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Oxford .. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Luton … MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Oldham …. MUSLIM
  • Mayor of Rochdale …. MUSLIM

All the following achieved by just 4 million Muslims out of the 66 million population:

  • Over 3,000 Muslim Mosques
  • Over 130 Muslim Sharia Courts
  • Over 50 Muslim Sharia Councils
  • Muslims Only No-Go Areas Across The UK
  • Muslim Women…78% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
  • Muslim Men…63% don’t work and are on FREE benefits/housing
  • Muslim Families…6-8 children planning to go on FREE benefits/housing
  • All UK schools are ONLY serving HALAL MEAT!

The USA and Canada can’t decide on an immigration policy? Maybe this might give you a better understanding of the insidiousness of Hijrah; that’s the takeover of a nation without going to war.
Don’t think for a moment that America is not a target or that there are no American cities where Islamic and Sharia victories and takeovers have already occurred.

It’s time for immigration control, or start planning for a very big goodbye to the American way of life!

All Rise!
