Fox news anchor suspended after calling
openly gay MSNBC host Rachel
Maddow an ´angry young man´

Daily Mail [UK], by Hayley Peterson

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/14/2012 5:58:58 AM

A Fox News anchor in Cincinnati, Ohio has returned to work after a two-day absence from her nightly newscast and an apology for calling MSNBC host Rachel Maddow an ´angry young man.´ Tricia Macke of WXIX-TV was off the air Sunday and Monday, several days after she issued an apology for referring to the openly gay Maddow as ´such an angry young man´ on her Facebook page. Maddow is an author, liberal commentator and host of the 9 p.m. nightly ´Rachel Maddow Show´ on MSNBC. When a viewer reprimanded Macke for her remarks about Maddow, Macke initially didn´t back down.

Comments:
So good not to have TV. Looking at the Maddow photos with the article, if someone asked "Is that a man or a woman?" I´d have to flutter a bit and probably land on "man." And I´d only flutter at all because of the blue-framed glasses.

The only good part of no power for two weeks was not having TV.

This would be funnier if not for the fact that she´ll probably be charged with ´hate speech´. IMO it´s different when other women do it. I call Maddow ´he´ all the time.

The indianapolis fox affiliate is so far up obama´s butt, it´s disgusting. The Patreus kerfuffle is finally worth mentioning but only in the context of the general now being in a video game. Not making this up.

I agree. When I first saw Maddow, I couldn´t tell if Maddow was a male or female. And I´m not Kidding. She dresses like a dude, hair cut like a dude, voice kind of like a dude.

She does it purposely. She dresses herself, cuts her hair that way, etc... She´s a female, pretending to be male. Isn´t that the whole idea of being gay???

She is an angry "not so young" man wannabe.

The Daily Mail has it wrong. She is not a "Fox News" anchor. Fox News is a cable outlet that has no local affiliates. She works for the Fox Broadcasting (free) network. Fox News goes to them for some local news coverage and sometimes provides them an anchor for something like a presidential debate. But no one at Fox News has any authority over a Fox Broadcasting local affiliate.

I don´t mind the fact that Raymond Maddow is a homosexual. I´m more alarmed at how much power these communist heathens wield in the scheme of things. Between sexual preference and skin color, we´re all living in constant fear of hate speech persecution.

In the NBC sit-com "Go On" the lead character Matthew Perry is always being mistaken for Rachel Maddow. On Saturday Night Live they did a "Hardball" skit where Chris Matthews keeps calling Maddow "Kyle MacLachlan". If NBC can compare it to a man than it´s fair game.

The United Nations (UN) has delivered its latest verdict on the measures necessary to save the world from global warming and the news is as grim as it is predictable and wearisomely familiar: More regulation from "experts", technocrats and bureaucrats at supranational organisations, such as the one whose initials begin with U and end with N.

That includes Medicaid patients who may be complaining about the application process on Twitter or bloggers who criticize Gov. Nikki Haley´s decision to reject Obamacare´s Medicaid expansion.

What is Vladimir Putin’s game? The recent unrest in eastern Ukraine has been presented by the Kremlin as an autonomous phenomenon, an upsurge of patriotic feeling among embattled ethnic Russians who long for the protection of the Motherland against what they see as a neo-nationalist regime in Kiev. It may be true that the initial impulse came from locals acting without Russia’s direct involvement. But it is becoming clear that, just as in Crimea, many of the “separatists” are not just taking their orders from Moscow, but are very probably Russian troops in paper-thin disguise. The key difference is that,

Ireland, once a rock-solid Christian country, has now become so intolerant of Christian beliefs that its leading opponent of gay marriage may be forced to leave the country because of fears for his personal safety. After repeated threats and obscene verbal attacks, John Waters, a nationally-known newspaper columnist, author and broadcaster who supports Christian family traditions, says he is now unable to go into the centre of Dublin at night because he fears for his own safety. The attacks began after Waters threatened the state-owned broadcaster RTE with legal action after a drag queen called ‘Panti Bliss’ appeared on a television programme

The Ukrainian president declared ´war´ between his country and Russia today after gunfire between pro-Moscow troops and Ukrainian special forces ended in the first fatalities of the conflict. The country´s interior minister Arsen Avakov said in a Facebook post a security service officer was killed near Slovyansk, east Ukraine. He also reported an unclear number of casualties among the militia. It is the first reported gun battle in the area--where armed men loyal to Moscow have seized a number of law enforcement buildings, including a police station, in recent days.

And Disraeli was keenly aware of his ethnicity, calling himself "the blank page between the Old Testament and the New".

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
