Remember Liz Trotta, who on Faux News last year joked that we should kill Osama Bin Laden and Barack Obama? Well, she’s back on the air once again and on Fox News, I might add, spewing her right wing hatred.What I find utterly reprehensible is that she would have the nerve to criticize another journalist when she was so terrible at being one.
She was forced to apologize on the air by the liberal blogosphere shortly after. She kept a low profile for a while, but this nutjob is back once again and smearing President Obama. In this segment, she is furious with the media’s coverage of President Obama’s Middle East trip. This time she is being interviewed by Fox News lackey Eric Shawn.
Trotta: It’s the Obama glut and if you add that, another couple of hours of Brian Williams on NBC doing inside the Obama White House. I mean he’s now up for the prize for Pet poodle in the Obama media kennel. Just unbelievable sycophancy.
Shawn: Who, Brian Williams?
Trotta: Oh, my goodness. The softball questions and the running up and down the hallways. Somebody compared the scenes of running up and down the hallways it to a scene from Goodfellows where one of the gangsters takes his girlfriend back through the kitchen in order to get to the secret night club.
Shawn: Brian Williams, I’ve known him for 15 years. He’s a decent, I think objective professional.
Trotta: You’re wrong, you’re wrong. This is a network that has totally cast it’s lot with the Obama White House.
Shawn: We’ve heard that.
Trotta: They’re of course the ugly rumors and reports about how Jeffrey Immelt, the chairman and CEO of G.E., the parent company, has sent the word down that we’re going to be nice to Obama, because we want some of the government contracts.
Shawn: do you really believe that? do you really believe that?
Trotta: I believe it’s perfectly possible. I’m not saying it’s so, but this is widely reported on the Internet. And then we have the stockholders meetings in which, where the questions were — where people tried to ask can these questions and, of course, everybody’s mic was cut. That aside, no, there wasn’t even coverage of Obama. Again, he commanded the airwaves all week. And again, the press, which is his personal, you know, fan book, just play ball.
Fox News, or Faux News as I like to call them, are as much a pawn of the right wing as MSNBC is perceived to be for the left wing. But they engage in way more propaganda that I have ever seen on television. Expect to see Ms. Trotta on the “O’Reilly Factor” this week with the continuation of her ridiculous comments. It’s pretty hypocritical for Faux News to complain about another media’s coverage of the president or politics in general, when they have done nothing but engage in the worst kind of journalism possible.
Trotta & Co. wrapped up the segment by attacking Williams because he gave a little bow to the president as he left him.
Shawn: There it is. I mean it’s just a little head nod.
Trotta: Grovel, grovel, grovel.
Shawn: No, it’s a little thank you. It’s a sign of respect. Thank you, Mr. President.
Trotta: Did you see the entire thing? It was a grovel.
Hypocrites. For all those people who remember the fallout from Ms. Trotta’s comments about Barack Obama, be on your guard because she is about to surface on Fox News shortly. Be ready to blow up the telephone lines at Fox to get her off the air, once again. I am no big fan of Brian Williams, but if Ms. Trotta could ever dare to walk in his shoes, then I would take her seriously.
