After Calling Stephen Colbert Gay and Making Sexually Inappropriate Comments

CBS Executive Suspended After Calling Stephen Colbert Gay and Making Sexually Inappropriate Comments

CBS has placed a high ranking executive on leave Wednesday after it was disclosed that he was making homophobic and sexually inappropriate comments at work. 

Vincent “Vinnie” Favale (pictured above), the senior vice president of talent for CBS Television and a founder of Comedy Central, regularly called LGBT guests on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert “homos” and insinuated that Colbert himself was gay himself.

“He would frequently call Stephen gay because of his seeming inability to interview women well,” a former CBS executive told CNN. “He would say this in rehearsals, the control room. Sometimes the CBS attorney would even be present, which to me is just shocking that nothing was done.”

Other employees reported that Favale frequently made vulgar comments, including once when there was construction outside the office.

“There was a big drill, and we looked outside and went to the window. [Favale] compared the drill to ‘a big black dick’ as it was drilling into the ground,

Favale allegedly also made derogatory remarks about Jennifer Hudson and Hugh Jackman.

“I’ll never forget the day he told me he got four erections while watching Jennifer Hudson rehearse,” a female former CBS executive told CNN, remembering when Oscar winner Hudson was preparing for her performance on The Late Show in 2015.

When Jackman came on the show to promote Logan, an employee said Favale mocked him as being “gay” and “in the closet,” and called his marriage a “fake.”

Rachel Maddow was also an alleged target of Favale’s homophobia and misogyny. Two people said they heard him ask “Who wants to see that ugly man on TV?” when the MSNBC anchor was a guest. Another witness claimed Favale made a similar comment about another well-known lesbian in entertainment who appeared on The Late Show.

In a statement to CNN Favale responded saying, “I have spent my entire career working at comedy shows, where there has always been a wide latitude to make transgressive jokes while preparing the program. While we make a lot of jokes, these jokes attributed to me, whether said in rehearsals or production meetings, are being taken out of context and were not said in the way being presented here.”

Maddow List

Rachel Maddow:

“Through this process, Republicans said they would shut down the government, or, once it was shut down, they would refuse to open the government unless they got each one of these things. Of all of these things that they demanded, they got none of them! None…these have been sixteen bad days for the country and the economy.”

Fantastc show last night for Madow.  Its a MUST watch.

“It’s one thing for the right to fall in love with its own politicians, to make Reagan a saint, Sarah Palin their own collective girlfriend, but the president of Russia, he is not that into you. Seriously, I know you guys hate President Obama, so it feels good to have a man-crush on somebody else, but this guy is the president of Russia. Zip it up, you guys, seriously. Have some respect.”

Un-American traitors, the lot of them

UPDATE: Cincinnati FOX News Anchor Apologizes For Calling Rachel Maddow An “Angry Young Man”

Yesterday we reported that Cincinnati Fox19 News anchot Tricia Macke, who attacked MSNBC host Rachel Maddow on Facebook last month by calling Maddow an  ”Angry Young Man” on her Facebook page an apparent homophobic slur at Rachel Maddow being a lesbian. (Macke has since scrubbed her FB page clean of the posting but not before someone screenshot it)

Now after LGBT bloggers, GLAAD, Equality Ohio other LGBT rights groups  have brought national attention and shame to both Macke and her bosses at Fox 19. Macke has apologized.

Following a note from management on Fox 19’s Facebook page in which they apologized for Macke’s remarks, the reporter herself called the comments “insensitive and inappropriate.” She went on, “I apologize to Ms. Maddow and any others who may have been offended by my comments, as they do not reflect my firm beliefs in individual and equal rights, and they certainly do not represent the opinions or position of my employer WXIX-TV.”

Considering Macke’s original postings I personaly highly doubt that she would have ever apologized if her bosses at Fox 19 hadn’t stepped in and to them so to Fox19 – WXIX-TV we are grateful.

Lets just hope that Macke at least walked away with a lesson about “professionalism in the media” even if she didn’t learn one about her own bigotry and homophobia.


Cincinnati FOX News News Anchor Tricia Macke Calls Rachel Maddow An “Angry Young Man”

Tricia Macke has been with Cincinnati Fox19 News since the debut of the Ten O’clock News in 1993.  According to her bio on the Fox19 website she “tell young people every day.. if you want to achieve something in life.. you have to work hard for it!   As Abraham Lincoln said, “whatever you are, be a good one.”  I try.”

Well obviously Macke doesn’t try hard enough to be a decent human being and not a homophobic bigot.

Last month Macke, attacked MSNBC host Rachel Maddow out of the blue calling her an  “Angry Young Man” on her Facebook page (Macke scubbed her FB page clean of the posting but not before someone screenshot it)

When some of Macke Facebook followers responded to her offensive bigoted comments Macke replied flippantly you are right.  I’m sorry, I should’ve said “antagonistic.” and continued defending her remarks when another person responded that in the news business sexual orientation is irrelevant, Macke responded “I knew what I was saying”

Even in a lesser media market like Cincinnati, OH Tricia Macke referring to Rachel Maddow as a “man” because she is a lesbian in public on Facebook and then defending her comments  is completely uncalled for and unacceptable.

Macke not only owes an apology to Rachel Maddow, but also to her viewers, the LGBT Community of Cincinnati, and young LGBT people in Ohio and everywhere who are subjected to this kind of idiotic and unfair bullying and harassment on a daily basis.

Fox 19 must take swift action to condemn Macke’s remarks, and Macke should make a full apology and learn the lesson of professionalism.

MN Anti-Gay Hate-Monger Bradlee Dean Ordered To Pay Rachel Maddow’s Legal Bills In Lawsuit

Anti-gay radio host and Michele Bachmann boytoy pal Bradlee Dean has been  ordered to pay Rachel Maddow’s legal bills in a $50  million lawsuit Dean filed against Maddow last year after the MSNBC host aired remarks he  made about Muslim people wanting to kill gay people.

Via Joe.My.God:

Memorandum and Order Granting in Part Defendants’ Motion for Attorneys’ Fees and  Denying Plaintiffs’ Combined Motions for Reconsideration and Sanctions Entered  on the Docket 6/25/12. Signed in chambers 6/25/12. Electronically filed via  CaseFileXPress on counsel for the parties 6/25/12. Plaintiffs shall pay to  Defendants fees and costs in the amount of $24,625.23 within thirty days

Dean who runs the Minnesota anti-gay hate group You Can Run But You Can’t Hide Ministries claims Maddow said he supported such the statements even though she made clear in  her discussion that Dean issued a later disclaimer saying he does not “call” for  the killing of gay people.

The order to pay at this point before outcome of the lawsuit would procedurally mean that Dean’s attorneys lost on some motion they had made, and then Maddow’s attorneys asked the court to repay them for the fees  they incurred in responding to that motion. It is NOT an order to pay ALL her  fees in the lawsuit. (That would be a LOT more than $24k.) This usually happens  when the failed motion was such an outrageous request that the moving attorneys  should never have filed it. In this case, it’s a way to punish the plaintiff  (Dean).

Watch video of Maddow’s original report that Dean is suing her over below:

FRC Hate Group President Tony Perkins LOVES Kirk Cameron and LOVES MSNBC

“I talked to Kirk [Cameron], I talked to him yesterday actually I was actually interestingly enough I was coming out of MSNBC where I was on yesterday with Martin Bashir, and I would actually encourage folks to go watch that interview that I did with him—they have it on their homepage; at least they did this morning on MSNBC—and thank them for allowing a balanced discussion. Obviously Martin did not agree with me but we had a very civil discussion on the issues and I tell you what I have to respect MSNBC for allowing debate and not buckling under the pressure of a loudmouth, Soros-funded group that is simply trying to silence the public debate over important public policy issues, so I will have to come to the defense of MSNBC for not buckling under that pressure.” – Tony Perkins

First order of business, we need to do something about MSNBC. That they are the presumed “progressive” voice in MSM media and yet continue to give air time to hatemongers such as Perkins and ignore the calls of the public is too much.

They need to be boycotted.  Plain and simple.

Sorry Rachel Maddow I love you and all but show some balls and refuse to renew your contract and/or quit.  Or at the very least SAY SOMETHING!



Video – FOX News’ Cal Thomas At CPAC: Rachel Maddow Is A Walking Ad For Birth Control

CPAC,  “The Conservative Political Action Confrence” otherwise known as GOP-NAZIPALOOZA is in full swing sans the Auntie Tom self loathing homo’s of GOFuckYourself, I mean GOProud and the hate and bile is spewing forth like a geyser. 

Today Fox News pundit Cal Thomas was greeted with cheers at CPAC: “I’m glad that you played the Rachel Maddow clip because I think she is the best argument in favor of her parents using contraception. I would be all for that. And all of the rest of the crowd at MSNBC, too, for that matter.”

Can you imagine the outrage and uproar if a Liberal media person said that the best part of Cal Thomas ran down his fathers leg?

Oh wait one just did.

Fuck you Cal Thomas and the Kiwi Parade Gloss Black Shoe Polish you slather over your ugly head.
