Yesterday evening, George Neumayr, executive editor of The American Spectator, was an invited guest on PBS’s NewsHour With Jim Lehrer, in a segment entitled “Public Broadcasting Under Fire.” Below we include a sampling of the many letters we received after his appearance:
Your whole organization is a sorry pile of manure in the first place but that crap that Neumayr was spreading on tonight’s “NewsHour” was an embarrassment even for a sorry bunch like you.
Christ on a Ritz, could that sorry bastard possibly be the best you could offer to state your warped and perverted view of PBS. Bill Moyers this, and Bill Moyers that … yadda yadda yadda, “Postcards From Buster” blah blah blah. Your whole organization put together isn’t fit to lick Bill Moyers ass. It just shows how terrific Mr. Moyers actually is when he can screw your whole outfit around so easily by just broadcasting the truth. As he said, it’s the one thing that that makes people like you run for cover like vampires from sunlight.p>If there’s one thing that I could fault the people at PBS for, it would be giving a forum to ass—-es like Neumayr. Of course when he makes an utter fool of himself on public TV like he did tonight, it just showcases what a screaming bunch of lunatics make up outfits like Spectator and Regnery. br> — John Pitt /p>
To my knowledge I have not ever seen your publication. If this fellow from your publication, Neumayr, who was on The Newshour (PBS) tonight, is anyways representative of the quality of your publication, you should be ashamed to be purveyors of such non-factual, non-responsive, non-sense about PBS, NPR and CPB. To protect yourselves, I suggest that you fire Neumayr tonight and make a statement to the American people that he is not representative of your organization. His interview with Geoffrey Brown will undoubtedly be played repeatedly to illustrate how low journalistic/media opinion was on the Right in the 2nd Bush administration.p>So sad to see this. br> — Mike Rashotte br> Tallahassee, Florida /p>
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
