BILL PRESS (15 DECEMBER 2011) (29:45): Oh yeah, all right all right yeah first of all I just have to thank my lord and savior Jesus Christ and you know what I want to say, S.T.F.U. [shut the f*** up]!
I’m tired of hearing Tim Tebow and all this Jesus talk….
Tim Tebow, everybody wants to make him a hero. I think he’s a disgrace! I think he’s a disgrace! I think he’s an embarrassment!
Press is the author of a book called TOXIC TALK: How The Radical Right Has Poisoned America’s Airwaves.
Yet in July, he suggested House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) should be struck dead by lightning. The year before, he likened a Glenn Beck rally at the Lincoln Memorial to an Al Qaeda rally at Ground Zero.
Media Matters for America hosted a book-signing party for Bill Press, at which he thanked them for providing the source material for the whole MSNBC/lib talker lineup. No wonder MSNBC’s rhetoric, and their ratings, are so toxic.
