TV is Flypaper for Morons

What is wrong with people on TV. They just don't know what to say out of their mouths. First they are talking about lynching Tiger Woods now this. I just don't get it.

Of all the things you could say she chose to say 'F--- Jesus'.

Now I wont condemn her to hell, I 'll let God deal with that, but at least apologise for the remarks you made. If you get drunk and say something you normally wouldn't say at least be woman enough to own it and apologise. You know what they say about drunk people though: They normally tell the truth. This is how she really feels. The good thing about Jesus is he would forgive her.

What I have a problem with is the fact that EPSN hasn't really addressed it other than making her take a week off from work. Give me a week off. That is a vacation, not a punishment or something that will make her see the error of her ways. That is sad.

She gets this weeks Golden Dummy Award!

ESPN anchorwoman: 'F--- Jesus'
TV host taken to task for outburst at public event

Dana Jacobson

A Catholic advocacy group charges the sports TV network ESPN has failed to respond properly to a graphic rant by anchorwoman Dana Jacobson in which she "attacked Jesus Christ."
Jacobson, reportedly intoxicated, was speaking at a celebrity roast in Atlantic City, N.J., when she unleashed a profane tirade, saying, "F--- Notre Dame," "F--- Touchdown Jesus" and finally "F--- Jesus."
"Touchdown Jesus" is the popular moniker for a mural on Notre Dame's library featuring Jesus raising his arms.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue said he pressed ESPN on the issue and received an e-mail with an unsatisfactory statement by Jacobson.
The statement said, in part, "My remarks about Notre Dame were foolish and insensitive. I respect all religions and did not mean anything derogatory by my poorly chosen words."
Donohue contended the response "fails on several counts."
"First, there is no evidence that ESPN is taking this matter seriously," he said. "Are we to believe that her hate speech is of no consequence?"

Donohue argued Jacobson's comments were at a public event where she represented ESPN.
Secondly, he pointed out, racist remarks by the late sports commentator Jimmy "The Greek" Snyder during a luncheon interview in 1988 resulted in his prompt firing by CBS, despite an apology.
Donohue added, "It is also important to note that being drunk didn't help Mel Gibson's case when he made bigoted remarks about Jews."
Finally, the Catholic leader said, "By far the most offensive thing she said, 'F--- Jesus,' isn't even addressed!"
"It is obvious, then, that neither Jacobson nor ESPN is dealing with this matter in a professional way," Donohue declared. "To put this issue behind them, ESPN must deal with this issue quickly, publicly and fairly, something it has yet to do. After all, most Christians are yet unaware of this event, but once they learn of it, they are sure to demand accountability."
As WND reported in September, Kathy Griffin, the star of the Bravo show "My Life on the D-List," stirred controversy when she used her appearance on the Emmy Awards program to tell Jesus to "suck it" and to claim full credit for the honor for herself.
