MSNBC has cancelled Tucker Carlson’s awful 9PM PDT TV show, but the bow-tied George Will wannbe will stay on with the network as an analyst through the 2008 presidential election.Ã‚Â
Carlson still hasn’t recovered from John Stewart’s tongue lashing on CNN’s Crossfire during the 2004 race; perhaps Fox News will add him and he’ll fit right in.
KSFO Radio host Melanie Morgan, famous for calling Barack Obama a “Half-rican” because he’s not descended from African slaves, was fired for making untrue claims about billionaire George Soros.Ã‚Â
From Morgan’s Wiki bio:
On February 8, 2007, while Morgan and her KSFO co-hosts Lee Rodgers were discussing philanthropist and political activist George Soros, the two stated that in 1944, Soros “hid the fact that he’s a Jew” and “apparently very cheerfully and willingly, went to work for the Nazis” and “ran around Hungary with Nazi officials, serving eviction notices to people who were going to be shipped out on the death trains.” This statement prompted the following on-air retraction and apology from KSFO Program Director Ken Berry: “During our February 8th broadcast, the hosts of this program mistakenly stated that financier George Soros ‘cheerfully’ and ‘willingly’ went to work for the Nazis after his native Hungary was occupied during World War II, when Mr. Soros was 13 years old. The hosts also mistakenly stated that Mr. Soros ‘ran around Hungary with Nazi officials, serving eviction notices to people who were going to be shipped out on the death trains,’ and that he did so ‘to further his own career.’ These statements are not accurate, and KSFO regrets that they were broadcast.”
I am still amazed that Michael Savage hasn’t been canned yet.
