The Federal Communications Commission will review complaints it receives over the on-camera gutter talk of anchors for CNN and MSNBC that came as they condemned the tea party movement in which hundreds of thousands of Americans met on Tax Day to protest not just taxes but a runaway government digging the nation into trillions of dollars in debt.

Yeah, right, FCC wants get involved in some partisan pissing contest.

"They called us Tea-baggers. Boo-hoo"

Now, if Roberto Gonzales were still the AG and someone referred to him as Dirty Sanchez, that might be a different story. They'd sound the Rusty Trombone and call out the cavalry.

It is not so much what they said, but the implications behind the intent. Before referring to the protesters as tea-baggers they made sure that the audience knew what the term was sexual slang and what it meant. After that their comments becames questionable for people who claim to professionals journalists.

and hazlnuts continued support shows that he is a total fake. He doesn't care when conservatives are slandered or when CNN is in the wrong. Now if it was FOX making similar comments Hazlnut would be all over it!:rolleyes:

hazl's always been a nut...(or two). Teabagging is probably something he/she enjoys, so of course, not upsetting.
