Times attacks Anderson Cooper: Kathy Griffin's artistry is under attack again.
Griffin posed with a severed head, got fired by CNN. In the New York Times, one reporter decided the time was right to take on Anderson Cooper:
BROMWICH (6/1/17): “CNN has terminated our agreement with Kathy Griffin to appear on our New Year’s Eve program,” the network tweeted. A spokeswoman said that there would be no additional comment.Ow ow ow ow ow ow ow! Like a baby-faced assassin, Bromwich referred to Cooper as one of Griffin's "entertainment industry colleagues."
The image of Ms. Griffin had provoked howls of outrage from Mr. Trump’s supporters and critics alike when it first appeared on Tuesday. Melania Trump, the first lady, said the image was “simply wrong.” Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son, called it “disgusting but not surprising”; Chelsea Clinton said it was “vile and wrong.”
Even Ms. Griffin’s entertainment industry colleagues, including CNN’s Anderson Cooper, who had hosted the network’s New Year’s Eve broadcast with her, shook their heads in disgust.
"Even Cooper" thought this was wrong, the cold-blooded tailgunner said.
He's only six years out of college. Is Bromwich allowed to say that?
Kidding aside, might we recall some recent comments made right here at this site? Our self-impressed liberal team seems to possess an endless supply of absurdly bad judgment.
Do you realize how many hits we've taken, down through the years, just because of our various tone-deaf "comedians?" Luckily, Griffin didn't save the severed head for a Dem fund-raising event.
Professor Williams said it last week. "Mr. Limbaugh, like Mr. Trump, feeds off class resentment," she said. "Let’s stop making their jobs easier."
To Professor Williams, we'll only say this:
Dream on, sister. Dream on!
