Perhaps the dam has finally burst!! I just received this communication from Greta Van Susteren's Gretawire blog. It's a boycott request of the Radio and Television Correspondents Association Annual Dinner for having hired a headliner, Louis C.K. whose sexist utterances have been worse than Rush, Maher and all the others combined. Please send these comments on anywhere you post or email or comment. We may have the media on the ropes........
UPDATE: Louis C.K. has withdrawn from performing at this dinner. Kudos to everyone who put the pressure on!! He said that "he just didn't want to do it." Poor baby......
Here's the link to Gretawire!
And here is the link to the Radio and Television Correspondents Association facebook page.
I refuse to go to the Radio and Television Correspondents Association Dinner – no one should go
Another pig….and a media association has hired the pig, Louis C.K., to be their headliner for the big media dinner? Really? I am not going. I refuse to go. Everyone in the media should join me in this boycott.
The headliner of this year’s Radio and Television Correspondents Dinner is “comedian” Louis C.K. Comedian? I don’t think so. Pig? yes.
He uses filthy language about women…..yes, the C word…and yes, even to describe a woman candidate for Vice President of the United States. It isn’t just Governor Palin he denigrates. He denigrates all women and looks to the crowd to laugh.
I refuse to show any support for this guy or for the Radio and Television Correspondents Association Dinner Committee who hired him. I think the organization that hired him is just as bad as he is. It is no secret that he denigrates women.
Here is a sample of what he said about Governor Sarah Palin and you tell me whether any member of the media should sit in the crowd while he speaks to them:
By the way, there is more, lots more.
I hope all the other women and men in the media join me in not going.
I also hope everyone has the courage to stand up to this.
