Uncommon Sense

politics and society are, unfortunately, much the same thing

Schlessinger Sherroded by left wing media

Bozell Column: The Real Radio Hatemongers
August 25, 2010 by Brent Bozell

Last week, Dr. Laura Schlessinger announced on CNN that she was hanging up her headphones at the end of the year. If she could not exercise her freedom of speech, she said, she was not interested in the job.

Watchdogs on the left had pounced on a conversation she had with a black woman in which she proclaimed something that everyone with cable TV knows is true. The N-word is acceptable vernacular for black comedians on HBO, but it’s not something you can ever, ever say if you’re not black.

While making this point, Dr. Laura purposely said the N-word repeatedly during this proclamation, and that was all the Left needed to start contacting sponsors, suggesting they shouldn’t want their products associated with this viciously racist talk show. It didn’t matter that even liberal editorialists in The Washington Post declared that there was nothing at all racist in what the doctor said.

The Left had found their to chance to silence her, and they pounced. All they needed to do was distort the context completely, and they did so masterfully.
