What a bunch of crybabies… April 27, 2006

Posted by RepublicanWitch in The Unhinged Media.

This is hilarious – WAAAAAH!  You won't let me watch the channel I want to watch! 

From Hotline on Call:

Not A Good Sign For Snow: WH Reporter Complains About Fox On TV [First of all, the title?  Why would this be "not a good sign for Snow"?  I think it would be a bad sign for the whining, sniveling crybabies who would be up against him.] 

Q It's come to my attention that there's been requests — this is a serious question — to turn these TVs onto a station other than Fox, and that those have been denied. My question would be, is there a White House policy that all government TVs have to be tuned to Fox? [All your TVs are belong to us … assimilate or be destroyed!]

MR. McCLELLAN: Never heard of any such thing. My TVs are on four different channels at all times.

Q Because you have four different TVs. But every time I've ever been —

MR. McCLELLAN: Every TV in the White House also has channels every — has a split screen, where they can —

Q Well, they always seem to be tuned to Fox, and there's been requests, and these are paid for by taxpayer dollars. And my understanding is that you guys have to watch Fox on Air Force One. Is that true? [Note the repeating of "there's been requests".  Never take responsibility for anything, it's always someone else that's raising the issue, and they're just trying to help the victims who are being forced to watch FOX.]

MR. McCLELLAN: First time I've ever heard of it. First time you've brought it to my attention, meaning the first time the press corps has brought it to my attention. In fact, I've watched other channels on here.

Q There's one —

MR. McCLELLAN: Hang on, Jim, come on. I've watched other channels on here, so I don't know where you're hearing that. But it's the first time anyone in the press has raised that question with me.

Q You've watched other channels other than Fox?

MR. McCLELLAN: On here, yes, sure.

Q I've never seen — they're always turned to Fox, which a lot of people consider a Republican-leaning network. [No, dipwad, a lot of people consider it far more balanced than the other stuff out there.  But then, you're so far to the left, you wouldn't recognize that if it hit you upside the head and knocked you into next Tuesday.]

Q Scott, is it one — on the airplane, is it one for all? I mean, if it's tuned for Fox here, is it Fox everywhere?

MR. McCLELLAN: I think that certain areas may be interconnected, but I'll have to double-check which.

Q Is yours off, wherever you are? [Huh?]

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, the conference room, or the senior staff office, the staff office, they're different TVs, and you can switch to different channels. I'm not sure if some of these in the back are connected to some of the others that are watching right here, right now. It doesn't look like it to me. I've never known anyone that's raised a complaint about a request from back here to watch a different channel.

Q I'm officially raising it and officially complaining about it. [Ooooh!  It's official!  I'm offended!  You must stop offending meeeeeeeeeeeee!]

MR. McCLELLAN: Well, I'm going to go see if we can change the channel for you. Have you called up?

Q I was the Fox victim, and I was told — the quote was, "No," when I asked for CNN. [There it is!  The VICTIM CARD! Almost as valuable as the race card!  Get yours today while supplies last! Only through this special offer, not available in stores! And Jim?  We know you wanted to watch Spongebob, but you're saying CNN now so you'll look good for the cool kids.]

MR. McCLELLAN: I don't know who you talked to, so — it didn't come to my attention. You don't know who you talked to either?

Q Well, the magic people at the other end off the phone. [Ok, the "the magic people at the other end off the phone"?  The. magic. people. at. the. other. end. of. the. phone. Got that?  The magic people.  And this guy actually gets paid.]

MR. McCLELLAN: The magic people at the other end of the phone. Well, I'll see if this cabin is —

Q I was told, "We don't watch CNN here, you can only watch Fox."

MR. McCLELLAN: As I said, it's hard to respond to something when I don't know who it is you talked to.

Q I used the phone back here. [Well, that certainly clears things up.]

MR. McCLELLAN: I find this all quite amusing, to tell you the truth. I mean, there are a lot of people on this plane that do watch that channel.

Q I've never been told, no. They're such nice guys up there. [Alright, Jim, back away from the mushrooms, and nobody'll get hurt.]

MR. McCLELLAN: First time you brought it to my attention. I'll go see what we can do on it

And make sure you click the link and read the comments left at Hotline on Call … they were subjected to FOX News at GASP! Gas Stations!  Dentist Offices!  Bookstores!  Oh the humanity!

I especially like the comment from "Outraged":

"…I've been watching Cavuto and Gibson tonight and am just so appalled by the Right wing and Big Biz propaganda they're spewing that I'm seriously wondering what can be done to shut them down. Its as if Joe McCarthy got his own TV network."

Aren't these the same people who have the ACLU on speed-dial, for when their free-speech rights are (in their minds) being trampled on?  What would the reaction be if we started clamoring for CNN to be shut down?

And Outraged?  McCarthy was right.

White House Press Corps. Jim VandeHei Orders A Whamburger And Some French Cries

(h/t Michelle Malkin) Apparently Jim VandeHei of the Washington Post felt that his whiney liberalism was being eclipsed by the likes of David Gregory and Helen Thomas, so he took it up a notch today and set the bar for…
