   Don't go on Facebook and call Rachel Maddow an "angry young man." Even if you are a news anchor for a FOX affiliate

Her little rant was quite amusing.

How dare she use facts to justify her world view!?

Hey, if Mann Coulter is fair game, then so is Rachael Manddow.

I apologize to Ms. Maddow and any others who may have been offended by my comments, as they do not reflect my firm beliefs in individual and equal rights, and they certainly do not represent the opinions or position of my employer WXIX-TV.

Non-apology apology.

I'm not a Maddow fan, but publicly posting something like that with your name and highly public job attached is just... I don't know if there's a word for stupidity like that.

Being gay, I am somewhat biased. I'd have handed her the severance check first thing Monday morning.

I doubt Rachel was very upset about this, she's been insulted every which way but Sunday. So, why the firing? Zero tolerance policy, probably.

Mann might be a lesbian, too. But even if she re-invented herself as one of the protected classes, it probably wouldn't go any different for her.

Being straight, I'd have done the same. We are talking about a Fox affiliate, however, so we'll see how they handle it.

"I'm sorry if anyone was offended" apology has been posted, of course.

You guys would hate Maddow too if she was clearly right and the GOP propaganda outlets were so wrong.

Especially if you were a typical homophobic sexist republican.

Pretty much. And, speaking as a liberal, I would expect some sort of punishment if she had gone after Ann Coulter in the same manner.

You're a f*cking news anchor; at least pretend to be objective even on your social networks.

Does Rachel take it up the pooper with the gusto that Coulter does?

Presumably from Rosie O'Donnell with a big ol' strap-on, one presumes.

Why would she apologize to anyone other than Maddow, and other people who may have been offended?

I wouldn't call Rachel Maddow angry. Glib, snarky, and aggressive in calling out lies of the right when they so willfully distort the truth, yes. An angry young man, well no. Actually, her future looks quite bright, to me.

If you want to see an angry commentator, check out Michelle Malkin. The other day, I caught all of 15 seconds of her ranting about Benghazi. So much anger in one person...she can't be healthy. Or happy, for that matter.

On one hand - rants, screeds and jokes about another person's sexual orientation are so last century.

On the other hand, maybe it's time to grow a pair and let some of this shiat go without ruining the doucheball commenter's life. Sometimes it's enough to know that the doucheball has self-identified...

Who the fark actually watches TV news besides old people, anyway? Honestly.

I can't imagine that many of Rachael Maddow's target audience watch cable news. Even the popular shows on Fox represent a tiny population of the country by viewership, but we're told that what these people say is what everyone on a particular side believes.

Yes, but I prefer:

/double down on the lolz


Was watching FNC (for the lolz) with a friend who does not follow politics the day after the election when Ann Coultier came on. My friends was all "what??? who is??? Her hair looks really nice, but she's kind of ...dimorphic isn't she?"

FNC lolz - it delivers.

You see it is funny because she is a lesbian and has short hair so therefore she is like a man. The joke is that she has more masculine traits than feminine traits.

The Muthaship: Apology apology.

Why would she apologize to anyone other than Maddow, and other people who may have been offended?


Uh, it was a non-apology because it was the standard boilerplate we get today.

Apology: "What I said was stupid/wrong/insensitive, and I'm sorry."
vs.
Non-apology: "I'm sorry if I offended anyone by what I said."
