So the Queen of Nice is at it again. Now that she doesn’t have to pretend any longer to be something she isn’t, she isn’t bothering with it. Do you want your daughters going to an outing like this when they are merely examining career options? This doesn’t begin to address the double standard in the media where it will protect its liberal darlings for the same things they criticize others for and demand their heads.
Don Imus gets fired for one unfortunate remark. Rosie O’Donnell uses the F-word and grabs her crotch when she emcees a gala awards presentation, even though there are teenage girls on hand – and gets applauded.The event was the Matrix Awards honoring New York’s prominent women in the media, held Monday afternoon at Manhattan’s Waldorf-Astoria. After the show Beth Ellen Keyes, managing director of the group sponsoring the affair, N.Y. Women in Communications, said in an e-mail: “Rosie was fabulous.” Not everyone would agree. According to the New York Post’s Page Six column, Barbara Walters “lowered her head on the dais and covered her face with her hand” when Rosie dropped the F-bomb. O’Donnell ended a rant about Donald Trump by grabbing her crotch and shouting, “Eat me!” One attendee told the Post: “I cringed and dove under the table when she said, ‘Eat me.’” She also called Trump an “old, bald billionaire” and made a crude reference to his private parts.
“I was offended by how vulgar and common O’Donnell was,” said Robert Zimmerman, a Democratic activist. “It was especially inappropriate with young people present.”
Attendees include 17 high school girls who won scholarship to pursue careers in the media.
Also on hand: Media mogul Rupert Murdoch and Sen. Hillary Clinton.”
