..."and now we have what ... uh...some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama ...uh..um..Obama ....well both if we could "...
HT to Lauren S

I can only hope the secret service is already in her face -- and her employer's.

Very courteous and took all the details I provided.

119. What I think, and what I will tell them, is that this woman just made their job that much more
difficult and hazzardous.

She told an audience of millions that Obama needs to be treated the same as the world's most wanted terrorist.

She should not be permitted near a microphone, or a camera ever again... even a polaroid instant with a flash cube.

121. While we're at it there are some right winged talk show hosts who insist
on calling Barack - Back Hussein with the emphasis on Hussein. I realize that is his middle name but what are they trying to accomplish by saying it over and over. They want people to associate Barack with Saddam and Saddam was executed.

It just occurred to me that these whack jobs may really want to see an assignation of Barack. I am sure they feel threatened by him the same way the Right winged slime of years ago were threatened by JFK and Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King. They do not want to see the uplifting of the poor. They don't want them educated. They don't want them to have health care. And you know why? Because they would loose all their fucking power that they have now at the top of the food chain.

I wish I could remember the name of the jack ass that I heard the other night.

If anyone has any information about who has been doing this please offer it. I think we should report them also.

142. The conservatives realize better than most people how much power the president has.
Edited on Mon May-26-08 04:31 AM by DUlover2909
You wouldn't believe how many times I have heard average people I meet say that the president is a figurehead with little real power. I insist to them as vehemently as I can that they are mistaken. It's usually fruitless. Most people are convinced that it doesn't matter who wins in any election. The right wing promotes this sentiment. It serves their agenda. This is what we, as Democrats, have to work against and change. People need to understand the importance of the executive branch. Most people don't understand that the executive branch appoints just about every position of real power in every department. Congress only makes laws and spends money. We could have a brilliant congress and a wonderful judiciary, but with an incompetent executive branch the government is useless.

148. Here is some info to voice your displeasure with this woman...
and my email to Mrs. Everett:

Contact FOX:
Teri Everett, Senior Vice President
Corporate Affairs & Communications
Phone: 212-852-7070
E-Mail: teverett@newscorp.com

jhorner@newscorp.com

Dear Mrs. Everett,

On May 25, 2008 at approximately 10:57 AM, Liz Trotta on a Foxs News political show made a vile and despicable threat that "Barack OBama and OSama both need to be killed". I find this verbal threat not only immoral, but illegal. This type of programming has no place in broadcasting. Making off handed remarks (threats) about Presidential Candidates has to stop. I've just file a compliant with the FCC and the Secret Service office asking them to open an criminal investigation. I'm also asking Fox News to remove this woman from further programming. There needs to be a apology by Fox Corporation. If an apology is not forthcoming, there will be a boycott of Fox Corporation sponsors. I look forward in seeing Fox News rectifying this matter immediately.

Thank You

177. COMPLAIN - (takes less than 60 seconds) at links below please

Speak up - Complain about Trotta



On Fox News this weekend contributor Liz Trotta openly and laughingly wished for the assassination of US Sen. Barack Obama.

In discussing Hillarys Friday remarks referencing the assassination of RFK in June Trotta says

And now we have what, uh, some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama, um uh, Obama, well both if we could (laughs)


How is this in any way acceptable in our country?
These are OUR airwaves, being used to encourage the murder of a high ranking member of the US Government and a presidential front runner.

Report her comment to the FCC

File a complaint with the FCC. You can go to the form for a general media complaint here.

It is a brief form and will only take a minute or two to fill out.


Complain to Fox Noise

Also please make a complaint to Fox News here

There is an email feature there and also a text box to enter news tips,
their phone number is 1-888-369-4762.


Ms. Trotta is also an author.

What comments will find their way to her book reviews at sites like Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, etc. ?

Here is a link to her writings at Amazon.

Here is a link to her writings at Barnes and Noble.

145. Yeah, right. Just what country do you think you are living in?
This is IMPERIAL AMERIKA, not a Free Country by any means and we have the totalitarian joke of a Toady Media to prove it.

Yeah, the Toady Media will get right on it, just as soon as they have illuminated the Pentagon Propaganda story so that everyone knows just how badly and frequently we have been lied to, as well as how much aof a concerted and malevolenteffort was made to make it so.

:rofl: :rofl:

Yeha, right after they do that.

166. she was Washington Times (moonie owned) bureau chief
so go figure. I think this is an orchestrated, Rovian attempt to associate Obama with Osama and we'll likely hear lots of these "slips" from these assholes.

http://www.kissmybigbluebutt.com /

For a woman with such impressive credentials, she seems to have lost her marbles. Here's her bio from FAUX News itself:

Liz Trotta is the former New York bureau chief of The Washington Times and is a contributor for FOX News Channel.

The author of Fighting for Air: In the Trenches with Television News, Trotta was the first woman to cover a war for broadcast news.

She began her career in journalism in 1965 working for the NBC affiliate in New York and won network recognition by taking on tough assignments including covering the Vietnam War and 1984 presidential candidate, George McGovern.

Trotta has worked for Hillman Periodicals; Inter-Catholic Press Agency; Long Island Press; Chicago Tribune; Newsday; NBC and CBS. She has taught Journalism at Stern College of Yeshiva University.

The winner of three Emmy awards and two Overseas Press Club awards, Trotta is a graduate of Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

27. I did call Agent Mike
First time I have ever contacted SS.

I told them I was concerned about the dog whistles that were being blown to the idiots in this country that think they can marry A Jodie Foster by killing the Senator and that my heart is breaking that his daughters may hear this continually repeated until the nation becomes numb to the idea.

The guy said that they were swamped with reports about this, that they are taking it very seriously and that they are investigating as we spoke.

147. Oh how the (perhaps honest) footsoldiers lie for their Bushie Masters.
Edited on Mon May-26-08 04:52 AM by tom_paine
That low-ranking individual you spoke to may honestly be concerned with enforcing the law and protecting the safety of Obama.

But his boss, and his boss' boss' and his boss' boss' boss all the way up to Bushler and Cheney, are criminals masquerading as law enforcement.

That why the Bushies promoted them, so they WOULDN'T investigate things like this.

Sorry to be so cynical, but seven long years under totalitarian rule, even "kinder and gentler" totalitarian rule, makes it so.

146. Absolutely correct. Obama does not need to fear "lone gunmen"
Obama needs to fear the Bushies who will do what they did on 9/11 (let their guard down purposefully) so that some Bushie Patsy can be framed and then killed.

155. Story from Texas in Feb --
"Police concerned about order to stop weapons screening at Obama rally"

DALLAS -- Security details at Barack Obama's rally Wednesday stopped screening people for weapons at the front gates more than an hour before the Democratic presidential candidate took the stage at Reunion Arena.

The order to put down the metal detectors and stop checking purses and laptop bags came as a surprise to several Dallas police officers who said they believed it was a lapse in security

88. I don't understand why an action alert to protest a news person suggesting
that assassination of a public official is a good idea belongs in GD-P. IMHO the moderator in this instance has made an error of judgment. It is incidental to the issue that Obama is a candidate. The issue is that a Faux employee has called for an assassination and another Faux employee laughed about it. This is criminal behavior and an action alert to protest is appropriate.

Peace,

Edited on Sun May-25-08 05:46 PM by ImForGore
These are not Freudian slips, only meant to look like it. They are LOUD AND CLEAR messages intended to be picked up by the lunatic fringe, and hopefully acted upon. All the while Faux and it's ilk will be able to say we obviously weren't serious, we were just joking around. These are truly evil people, and the simple fact that they try so hard to keep the rethugs in office should tell any right-minded person everything they need to know about both Faux and the Republican party. And dare I say Democrats who are willing to appear on their fucking network. The DNC needs to send a loud and clear message that they expect ALL democratic candidates and their people to stay far far away from those right-wing propaganda spewing assholes. Hopefully the FCC will be all over this in addition to the SS, I just filed a complaint with them that reads:

"On Fox news, on Sunday May 25th, I believe, Liz Trotta openly wished for the assassination of Democratic candidate Barrack Obama. While I have little hope of ANY government agency going after FOX News under the current administration, I am praying that just maybe this will somehow find it's way to someone in our government who still cares about what is right. I am including a link to the video for your use. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BjYpkvcmog0 If this is allowed to go unchecked, I will finally know that Fox can do nothing that crosses any line when it comes to attacking the opposition party. This goes beyond anything I have ever seen on ANY "news" network. If this is allowed on our airwaves, how can you possibly say anything else is indecent?"

You too can file a complaint here http://esupport.fcc.gov/complaints.htm and I highly encourage EVERYONE here to do so. You all know we're already on the administrations watch list anyway.

"Both would be good" (referring to Osama and Obama).

Damn, this is not funny. :grr:

71. I thought she said
well, both if we could.
Either way a criminal utterance. I hope the SS is already on the way to Fux News to arrest her. Some poor guy in South Dakota was sent away for 3 years for making a lame joke about a burning bush.

Seems to me she should be treated similarly. That would be Fair and Balanced.

31. It's already on Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liz_Trotta

Trotta came to prominence after expressing a desire that US presidential candidate Barack Obama be assassinated<1> in the run up to the 2008 election.

33. And you thought Mrs. Clinton's comment was inexcusable
Good grief! Hillary was trying to make an argument that many primary races aren't decided until June and made the remark about Bobby Kennedy being assassinated while running for president in June.

Liz Trotta doesn't get the benefit of the doubt. She was joking about assassinating Senator Obama and suggesting that it would be a positive thing.

Cue Keith Olbermann. That's inexcusable.

115. Yes Clinton was inexcusable. Period
Fox would have had nothing to elaborate upon without Hillary's slime. Plain and simple.

That you want to hold journalists to a higher standard than a candidate who claims to be "Ready on Day One" and having passed some mystical Commander-in-Chief test is beyond reprehensible.

124. Exactly. Hillary opened the door. Pandora's Box. "Permission" to speculate or even wish for it.
That's how people WOULD hear her maliciously reckless shit. Politicians are PROFESSIONALS at using words to acheive an EFFECT. That's what language is to her ... provocation, manipulation, spin ... whatever anyone calls it, it's INTENDED to evoke a response. It's NOT candor, or musings, or anything BUT targeted prods.

126. Dissenting
That Mrs. Clinton brought up the possibility that Senator Obama could be assassinated was inexcusable indeed. The point she was making is that it could happen and if it did she would be ready to lead the Democratic Party. Although there's no positive way to spin her comments, she didn't say the act itself would be a good thing.

Ms. Trotta went a step further by suggesting we would be as well off were Senator Obama assassinated than if Osama were killed and even better yet would be to kill both of them.

That is not holding Ms. Trotta to a higher standard. That is recognizing that, as bad as Mrs. Clinton's comments were, Ms. Trotta's were actually worse. Ms. Trotta was gleeful at the thought of Senator Obama being assassinated.

193. Professional Journalists have already spelled this out
far better than I can.

However, the basic premise since JFK has been "We know the possibility exists. But the unwritten taboo is we don't talk about it in public."

Yes, the Trotta remark was one step beyond the Clinton remark.

However, the important point is there would have been absolutely nothing for Trotta to expound upon if Hillary Clinton hadn't broken a basic taboo.

And that breaking of long-standing unwritten taboo is what so shocked not only today's media, but also those of us who have been around since the JFK assassination, and caused such a rapid public denouncement.

Hillary Clinton gave tacit approval from a supposed national leader to put the word into discussion. That is the problem.

Now postings are appearing all over - not just on blogs, but as comments to major media articles. Threats, calls to action, using unrepeatable language. Trotta has now been advanced to the next level, and the Secret Service has REAL threats to track down.

Again, all because one person legitimatized the word at the Presidential candidate level. How can media outlets NOT report it now?

I agree with you that Trotta's remarks were a level more inflamatory, but NOT worse for the reasons above.

Yes, Trotta should be FIRED for her blunder. So should She-Who-Started-It-All.

41. Why doesn't this also qualify as obscenity?
She is pretty much advocating a wish for violence - and children are in homes all over the country with this ridiculous excuse for a "news" network blaring from their television screens. Worse, this crap broadcasts on televisions in many public places, from retail stores to doctors offices to gyms. . .I don't think this network should be broadcasted in public domain- it is a CABLE channel with obvious over-the-top adult content.

81. SACK her? Fuck that shit! She should be fucking arrested.
She made use of the public airwaves to advocate for the assassination of a presidential candidate. In my book, that constitutes a threat to a "major candidate to the Office of President of the United States."

Under The United States Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter XIV, Section 879:

(a) Whoever knowingly and willfully threatens to kill, kidnap, or inflict bodily harm upon
(1) a former President or a member of the immediate family of a former President;
(2) a member of the immediate family of the President, the President-elect, the Vice President, or the Vice President-elect;
(3) a major candidate for the office of President or Vice President, or a member of the immediate family of such candidate; or
(4) a person protected by the Secret Service under section 3056 (a)(6);
shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.

(b) As used in this section
(1) the term immediate family means
(A) with respect to subsection (a)(1) of this section, the wife of a former President during his lifetime, the widow of a former President until her death or remarriage, and minor children of a former President until they reach sixteen years of age; and
(B) with respect to subsection (a)(2) and (a)(3) of this section, a person to whom the President, President-elect, Vice President, Vice President-elect, or major candidate for the office of President or Vice President
(i) is related by blood, marriage, or adoption; or
(ii) stands in loco parentis;
(2) the term major candidate for the office of President or Vice President means a candidate referred to in subsection (a)(7) of section 3056 of this title; and
(3) the terms President-elect and Vice President-elect have the meanings given those terms in section 871 (b) of this title.

136. Out of intellectual curiosity,
Do you happen to know the wording of "section 2056?"

"(2) the term major candidate for the office of President or Vice President means a candidate referred to in subsection (a)(7) of section 3056 of this title"

I don't doubt that Obama is a major candidate, it's just interesting to know what constitutes a "major" candidate.

who also happens to be a Presidential candidate. And on a national TV network.

Ain't that some sheeyitt?

And who woulda ever thunk it would be a Fox Propaganda tool who did it?





Thank you Hillary. You have outdone yourself this time.

99. These are republicans
They think nothing of sending children off to die and get maimed in illegal wars, torturing people, taking from the poor and giving it over to the rich. This is the republican party. Hoping for the assassination of a democrat, and especially a black democrat is nothing to these heartless fucks. I absolutely believe they are pushing the message to make it happen. They know there are enough crazy fucking racist republicans to get the message and carry it out.

Republicans have destroyed all that was decent about this nation.

151. Why are we cursed with so *many* damn Republicans?
What is wrong with people? Is there something in the water? Even when we are in the majority, the damn Republicans get their way every time. Then something despicable like this comes over Fox News and nothing happens!

To me, "Republican" has come to mean "disgusting, lying, perverted piece of slime". Poor Ike! He must be spinning in his grave. (Eisenhower, not Turner.)

in the media. but I don't think the MSM will address this very much because of the timing, it will be passe by Tue, so we'll just have to wait for the NEXT reference to them wanting him killed (goodness, to think she said that is beyond acceptable... it's so damn direct)

118. I sent fox this
I doubt the Secret Service will do anything because we all know that she's not actually plotting to assasinate Obama even if she would like it to happen. Threatening regarding their advertisers is probably the best we can do.

Dear Sir or Madam,

It is with a sense of disgust that I write this complaint regarding Liz Trotta's comments about "knocking off" Barack Obama on your channel. At the very least, this "joke" was offensive in the extreme, to the American people, but especially to Barack Obama and his family which includes two small daughters.

An apology is owed for this repulsive behavior. It is surprising it hasn't already been offered. If it is not, I will assume and do my best to impart the impression to others that every negative stereotype about your news channel is utterly and completely true. I know that I, along with many Americans, will have a negative view of even the advertisers of such sewage on our television screens.

120. When Republican tools go off script it can get ugly in hurry.
The tragically comic idiocy of Bush, the talking point meltdown of Kevin James on Hardball, the bizarrely violent outbursts of O'Rieilly, now the sinister, joking nonchalance in this latest display by Trotta.

The veneer is thin but the corrosion is deep.

125. Jesus. These people are fucking scum.
Four reasons they want Obama dead:

1.He's black
2.He's going to humiliate McGoo).
3.He's not going to play ball with the military-industrial fascists who've been running the country since 1980.
4.He's said that he's going to investigate potential crimes committed by the Bush administration.

The only part of this that's surprising is the degree to which they've telegraphed their intentions.

Trying to mainstream the idea that a presidential candidate should be assassinated is COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. Usually Fox just pedals gross misinformation, but now they are actually suggesting that someone should murder a presidential candidate. If this is not dealt with harshly, OMG, I don't even know what.

144. Bushies NEVER get the Imperial SS sicced on them. That is only for American Subjects.
We can rest assured that Liz has gotten a hearty pat on the back and perhaps a little soething in her pay envelope for saying what she said.

The very idea that a totalitarian nation like Bush-Occupied Amerika would invetsigate or prosecute Loyal Bushies is as ludicrous as thinking the nazis were going to investigate and prosecute Auschwitz atrocities.

Liz will not suffer a visit from the SS. Liz will not suffer at all, but prosper.

Such is life in Bush-Occupied Imperial Amerika, where the Bad Guys just keep winning and winning and winning.

Was honored by having the Bradley tank named after him. The only problem with these tanks is that several times a day for some reason their turrets would turn toward Mecca, their gun barrels would dip then their engines would stop for several minutes.......

As I recall, General Bradley's first name was Omar.

I just fired off an email to the Fox Affialiate in NYC stating that I would be handing in my Stop and Shop discount card today and advising that Company I will not be shopping there until they remove their advertising from Fox NYC. I want an admission of wrong doing and an apology from Fox all over their website. Until then - let's look at our LOCAL affiliates web pages, find an advertiser and put the brass tacks to them.

Off to shower, get dressed and haul ass over to Stop and Shop.

While Michelle Malkin is contemplating boycotting Dunkin Donuts - let's get off our asses and make it known at a Local Level that they have it coming for supporting that drivel.

The second agent said he was aware of it and indicated that they were following up on it. However, he said "you got it from that little blog"

165. I might be wrong, but
I think threatening the President is a felony, but not so everyone who has SS protection. Candidates, families, ex-Presidents (and VP's?) all have SS protection but the law applies to the sitting POTUS.

I'm not making light of this, mind you, but what they can and cannot do about her may be limited.

You seem to be suggesting that people should be able to advocate assassination because otherwise "no one is allowed to say anything about Saint O that is short of 'I love him and I want him to be the next nominee'"

I am sorry but no matter what you think of Obama this is beyond the pale, and it is beyond the pale for you to defend it.
