Fox Affiliate Anchor Calls Rachel Maddow an Angry Young Man


Cincinnati Fox anchor Tricia Macke got pulled off the air for posting the following on her Facebook page:

“Rachel Maddow is such an angry young man.”

Local LGBT groups were not happy about this. All she had to say was “Sorry if you were offended”, which has not helped things. Since then she’s been suspended. Hey, maybe she was just confused by Maddow’s haircut.

I make it a point to mistakenly call dykes "sir" every chance I get. Then watch the false anger and the true appreciation fight it out.

I think Rachel Maddow would have a laugh at that. I bet that's not the first time she's been called a man.

So now we have a problem with telling the truth? If Rachel Maddow could adopt a penis she'd have an african.

We got to start to realize that everyone is watching all the time. You can't drop jokes like that anymore if your employer isn't gonna like it, because they're gonna see it. We are spying on each other and ratting each other out.

This bitch is fucking hot! I'd eat that conservative ass in a second. Oh, and even my liberal ass thinks Rachel Maddow looks like a fucking dude. She looks like a dude cause she feels comfortable looking like a dude. There for, there's no reason for her to be pissed when people call her a man. She wants to be manly! And I'm pretty sure she wasn't pissed when she had the comment relayed to her. She probably also wants to fuck the shit outta this bitch and could care less what the fuck people think of her man like qualities. Fuck the over-sensitive LGBT and their bullshit sensorship and any organization that tries to sensor people

Where was all the pretend outrage when the new Mathew Perry show had an episode where the running gag was that people thought he was Rachel Maddow?  What's the differnce between posting a joke that Maddow is a dude and broadcasting a joke that Maddow looks like a dude?

She should have been suspended for such an old and unoriginal joke.

I'm betting Maddow is waaay better at softball than Tricia Macke

Maddow forgave her on the condition she can take Macke to next years Super Bowl.

Maddow so wishes she was born with a dick. Het Rachel no matter how short you cut your hair and no matter how much you play dress up in your daddys clothes . Your vagina will always be a place where sperm should be ejaculated upon.

 @sidwasout One's a tv sitcom, the other is a news anchor who represents the network?

 

Personally, I don't care what she said and wouldn't blame her for not getting in trouble for the comment, but there is a difference between your two examples.

I love how you wrote “ejaculated upon" instead of "ejaculated in". What a great choice of words. @Androidvirus

@zel I'm going to agree with you that if it came down to a sitcom and a news anchor then it'd be unacceptable. But Fox "news" channel is not at all a news channel. Its "news entertainment". Therefor acceptable. So why they pulled her is completely ridiculous and seems to be against their entertainment goal.

 @zel

 Granted, but she wasn't making a news broadcast.  Was it on her personal page?  Is she not allowed to make jokes on her personal page?  Jokes are jokes, regardless of whether they are funny or original.  Unless she made her joke in the context of a news broadcast, or on a page officially affiliated with the company for which she works, I don't see a real difference.

@SerotoninsGone That was the point of the joke. Should I have put the obligatory "Too wordy?" at the end?

 Yeah, the local affiliates tend to do actual news shows, like the local affiliates for the other major networks.

@Drippy Granny She's on a local affiliate, not the national cable channel. Not really the same. But at least you didn't say "faux news," ugh...

 @Drippy Granny  I agree with your comment about fox news entertainment. But whether they are news or entertainment, it's their right to decide what they want to do internally, even if I disagree with it.

 I hear you. But honestly, I do not think her comment was not meant as a joke at all (still don't think she should be fired!).

 @zel

 Understood.  I was commenting on your view that the two are different.  They are not exactly alike, but I think they are more alike than different.  Jokes are jokes.

 @sidwasoutLike I said, I agree with you. I was just commenting on y our question about the difference between her comment and the show "Go on".

 

I don't know if it was her personal page or not.
