the real reason she was fired was for telling obama to stay out of fights with fox news.you cant be negative to the great one and get away with it.i dont agree with her on israel comments but it was her opinion.this firing will scare hell out of other reporters who might have had the courage before to report negatives on obama.

The reason she was fired because her mouth always has been toxic to say the least!

She is too old not to have learned some grace, and if nothing else know when to keep her rants to herself. But like the old fool she is she put her big feet in that toxic potty mouth of hers and thought because she was an old white woman she would get away with it? NOT
She over stayed her time in the white house just as some of the rest of the fermented varmit, that still is trying to keep a lid over the old Genteel way! Courage is one thing but just to be rude and ignorant is another! It was time for her demented, rude, obnoxious, depend diaper wearing self to be gone! And she has no one to blame but hereself.
Everytime something goes bad,or someone acts a fool it is not the Presidents' fault that BS!

"Oh, hey, look: he must be a Jewish guy 'cause he's got one 'o them beanies on his head, and he's got a video camera, AND he's askin' me what I think about Jews, pallys and Gaza... Ho ho! Have _I_ got an answer for _him_!"


And so, the [apparently] senile old news veteran does what she does best - makes all the OTHER newsfools look good by comparison.

There is no defense for her comments because they were nonsensical.

To say Jews should 'go home' to Poland or Germany or elsewhere made no sense as though she suddenly was unaware of history not only of the persecution of Jews but where their homeland is and it certainly is not Europe. It is as though she 'forgot' how persecution and murder continued in those countries even after the war and helped lead to reestablishing Israel though certainly not without conflict or without injustices, yet the only solution is to move forward.

It is unfortunate that her career came to this end as she was a role model for women for many years but it seems that some deep seated anti semitism on her part surfaced that is more visceral than simple opinion.

Corporate Media Figures If It Screams 'CONDIT!' Loud Enough, the Public Won't Notice the DEAD Woman in Joe Scarborough's Office

Joe Scarborough
"ConditLevyConditLevyCond itLevyConditConditLevyConditLe vy..." and that concludes tonight's news.... But wait! What's that we hear under the ConditLevy din? A female aide DIED in Joe Scarborough's office? No one knows how or why? What's that - the medical examiner Michael Berkland refuses to disclose any details? What's that about a toxicology report? And what's that about Scarborough, who ran as an UNCONTESTED CANDIDATE in his district, suddenly deciding to resign from his office just a few weeks before the attractive 28-year-old's death? What do you have to say about that, NBC, ABC, CNN, NY Times, Washington Post? "ConditLevyConditLevyCond itLevyConditLevyConditLevy. " That's what we thought you'd say!
