What do you know? We May Have Gotten Mouthpiece Fred Off ABC

I started a relatively lonely campaign about 2-3 weeks ago to get Fred Thompson--all but declared presidential candidate who admitted he was benefitting from free ABC airtime--off the radio there. And off their Intertube site.

I posted on it, and it was picked up by Kos, C&L, I cross-posted at Huff Post and then did some radio on it (The Young Turks, etc.). We ended up getting some print coverage and it blew up into a mini-brouhaha.

Well lo and behold, ABC is now talking about Fred in the past tense. I am not bragging here. Obviously what they were doing was so beyond the pale, that anyone who brought it up would have been able to put pressure on them. But I guess that is the point. Stand up and make yourself heard, and who knows what happens.

On a related note, can we now assume Fred is about to officially launch an ill-fated attempt to be the next corrupt Republican President?

Terrific job you two!

Fred is simply another idiot - he doesn't even LIKE politics so I don't know what he's doing.

Another Repig psychopath.

Big deal, Cliffiecakes,

Do you the kind of money Rudy makes from his fucking sick endorsement of Ellen Tracy gowns?

Go after that fucking crime lord in a strapless and do some real damage to the Garrison Of Pederasts (GOP).

Interesting conflicts of interests you are after? Find the interview with one of Romney's ex-friends from his temple who broke with him after he all but ordered a women in a certainly fatal pregnancy to have the kid while he was Bishop.

It's on the web. He admitted to her he was 'allowed' to take a pro-choice position by the cult leadership in Utah when he campaigned for MA governor. Print it out, shove it into his fucking face and ask him if it's a fucking fabrication. If he claims it's made up, ask him if he's ready to sign an affidavit to that assertion.

Don't piss on their shoes. Find the big crimes and bayonet them with them. Plunge and twist! Plunge and twist! Bring cameras and crowds to shout DIE YOU GRAVY SUCKING PIG while you're interviewing the GOP scum.

Make Lee Atwater vomit in his own grave. Attack! Attack! Attack!

Be gone, Fred *Law & Order gavel sound*

Does this mean he won't be filling in for Paul Harvey any more?

Good day!

 
At 9:45 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Given that Fred is supposed to announce any day now do you think they're referring to him in the past tense because they know he will be leaving or because you put pressure on them? I'm going to bet it's because he's already given them his resignation not that they've fired him.

Nice work my man!

These guys don't embarass easily. It'll take more than this to cut him down to size, say 5'6" like Irv Libby.

 
At 11:18 PM, Blogger Fernando said...

So Cliff, can you take Sam Seder in an arm wrestling contest?

 
At 11:22 PM, Blogger Paddy said...

Well Fernando, I don't know about Cliff, but I'd be willing to "wrestle" with Sam.

I have a question about Fred T on TV re-runs.
I am seeing a lot of Fred these days on shows and old movies on the tube.
This is despite the fact that he's running for president - but he hasn't officially declared (which is hair splitting and that runs counter to the straight shooter political image he's trying to fabricate.)
My question is - are syndicators just trying to get these programs on the air to make a dollar since they'll be banned from doing so once he declares?
Is there something more sinister afoot - trying to raise his public image.
Or is this all my crazy imagination?

 
At 1:19 AM, Blogger Patrick said...

great job plain and simple. I personally thank you !

 
At 1:54 AM, Blogger Vernon Lee said...

texasmatters,

Interesting question.

The L&O syndication, which a few years ago ran on 3 different cable stations, is now exclusive to TNT.

I imagine they're mighty pissed to be stuck with inventory that they can't air (if they did air Frederick of Hollywood episodes, they'd have to give equal time to 19 other candidates). After all, they did presumably buy out the other cable nets for the exclusive right to air it.

But I haven't noticed any change in the frequency of their reruns of L&O. TNT has crammed its schedule full of reruns pretty consistently.

I have serious doubts whether there's anything sinister at work here.

 
At 4:05 AM, Anonymous UnEasyOne said...

Great job!

It is news to me that airing fictional TV shows will trigger some kind of balance requirement from the FEC or something. Texasmatters and Vernon Lee, are you sure?

Not claiming to be an expert on the law by any means, but as I said previously, this is news to me.

 
At 8:51 AM, Blogger Samuel said...

Isn't that what happened with Reagan? I seem to remember when I was a kid that they couldn't show his movies without giving equal time. But I may just be remembering that wrong.

You are a moron. Get a job!

Thompson also lobbied for abortion rights now denies it. The lies have already started and he hasn't even declared his candidacy yet.

 
At 11:34 AM, Anonymous TruthSeeker said...

Thanks Cliff! One more thing, I have heard of you :-)

 
At 3:15 PM, Blogger t said...

Hey, fantastic work....it's really amazing that such corrupt, oleaginous candidates can be taken seriously in this day and age....and reflects badly on the country. Anyway, great work!

Anonymous 8:51 - Is this the article that you are referring to? http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/HL0706/S00066.htm

Gee, whatever happened to "compassionate" conservatism? Falwell is alive and has taken possession of Romney's body.
