Here’s today’s Washington Watch Daily commentary from FRC Radio:
Every Rosie has its thorn. And the newest member of ABCs show The View proves it. In her latest gig, its obvious that Rosie ODonnells goal is to alienate as many people as possible. In the last few months, Rosies used her television soapbox to equate Christians to terrorists, blame 9-11 on the American government, call for the Presidents impeachment, and denounce the Bible for its sexual improprieties. And since her rage is directed at religious groups and George Bush, producers defend her, saying shes just exercising her First Amendment rights. That may be, but Americans are growing tired of the personal attacks. According to an AOL poll, 62% think she should be fired for it. Unfortunately, ABC doesnt have enough sense to agree. As Jonah Goldberg says, Rosies gotten a pass because, She isnt [just] a wackoshes a left-wing wacko. Thats the problem with a media as biased as ours. The first step of holding someone to a higher standard is actually believing in one. And until morality makes a primetime comeback, the future of network television doesnt look quite so Rosie.
