Kudos to the Hill newspaper

May 2, 2018 |

Kudos to The Hill newspaper for being the first major media outlet to announce that it will no longer participate in the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner unless major changes are made to insure that it is “non-partisan and done without hostility and personal animus toward the party that occupies the White House — regardless of who is in power.” Hill Chairman James Finkelstein said there’s simply no reason for the paper to participate in something that “casts our profession in a poor light.”

He also reminisced about previous dinners, where the jokes were good-natured and bipartisan, and compared them to this year’s event, in which he noted the “comedian” was so offensive and vulgar that for the first time ever, C-SPAN actually cut off its radio broadcast.

Since the WHCA president seemed not to grasp just how repulsive this year’s event was to Americans outside the Beltway, maybe the word that one of the preeminent media outlets for political news inside the Beltway is now boycotting it will spur some reforms. If so, it will be proof that there are ways to get your message across without being foul-mouthed and personally vicious.

    I never watch these type of programs, but from what I have read, that "supposed comedian" went way over the line and definitely wasn't amusing (which I must say is true of late night TV and SNL, etc.)! A very pathetic course our country is on since the liberal slant is about on everything we see or read...:-(

    I MUST leave a comment on this one! Sarah looking stunning! There is no room or reason for such foul, filthy language coming from that so-called "commedienne". Her mouth reveals her dirty heart. Both of us know, as genuine "born-again" Christians that we are in the End Times and last days before Christ sets up His earthly Kingdom. Sarah's rewards are coming! As for that filthy-mouthed porn star, her "rewards" are coming, too, in an entirely different and eternal place. These are facts, and my source is the infallible Word of the Living God. There's still "pay-day-someday". Hang in there Sarah! You are serving the Lord on our behalf!

    Ms. Sarah Huckabee Sanders is very intelligent. She has been taught well by her loving parents. She recognizes ignorance at a glance. Although hurtful remarks can sting, Christians are given the power to tolerate more than most people. God bless her for her tenacity, her spirit, her faithfulness to God and her family. She is an asset to our Country!!!!

    Kudos to The Hill. It seems that many of the entertainers out there today have forgotten how to entertain.

    I was shocked to hear such vile, vulgar, low-class comments made under the guise of comedy. I didn't laugh. To me the most shocking, repulsive comments were the one made about Ivanka and the one talking about abortion. Pure trash, that's what Michelle Wolfe is.

    Mr. Huckabee; my husband & I are ardent admirers of you, your lovely
    daughter, Sarah & supporters of our
    President, Donald Trump. Frankly, we pray that all of you can withstand
    the unbelievable daily onslaught of
    attacks in order to make an important difference in our country.
    Thank you, especially to Sarah!

    Beautiful daughter who is Christian, smart, strong, and composed - with handsome husband - and children! What more could a father want? Congratulations pop! BTW, I voted for Huckaby when Mike ran in Republican Presidential Primary. Was so pleased to see Sarah in her new role wrangling all of those rude reporters. lol

    Finally someone has the guts to stand up and shout enough of the garbage spilling that goes on. Sarah is a lovely, strong and does her job with class and honesty. It’s a shame she even went to the stupid event.

    SARAH SAUNDERS, IS A GEM A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN, A BRILLIANT WOMAN, AND THERE IS NO WAY ANYONE SHOULD TAKE THIS ABUSE AIMED AT HER. ACTUALLY IT IS OUT OF FEAR, THEY DO THE SAME TO POTUS TRUMP I FIND THAT QUITE COMPLEMENTARY, IT SHOWS HER EXCELLENCE IN HER POSITION QUICK AND SHARP AS A RAZOR WITH THEIR QUES. SHE IS TO BRIGHT TO OVERCOME SO THE ATTACK COMES. SARAH SHOULD SIT BACK AND BE PROUD WEAR A MEDAL OF HONOR ON HER SHOULDER AS THAT IS WHAT THIS ATTACK SHOWS ME. SARAH SANDERS HAS EVERY POTENTIAL OF ONE DAY BECOMING THE FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT OF THE U.S. THAT'S WHAT I SEE!

    As a Christian I was absolutely offended by the so-called comedian’s language. But i truly appreciate your daughter’s ability to sit there in silence. Few people could have taken what she did. You and your wife did well raising her!!

    My husband and I watch Huckabee every week-end...and love it!! I personally feel sorry for that woman comedian, who felt it necessary to try to use humor in a demeaning, vulgar way. We all need to pray she can see the light before it is too late!!
