New Film Explores Fiery Bill Buckley-Gore Vidal ABC Debates in 1968

June 20th, 2015 4:02 PM
In 1968, ABC News tried to improve on its lowly third-rank status by bringing on some rock-em, sock-em commentary around the two party conventions  from two intellectual heavyweights: William F. Buckley Jr. On the right, and author Gore Vidal on the left. A new documentary – from the left, considering it carries a tag from Independent Lens, a leftist documentary series for PBS – explores the…

In Appreciation of Gore Vidal, NPR Broadcasts Historic Lie About Willi

August 4th, 2012 7:31 AM
NPR is the network that sought out Christopher Hitchens to trash Mother Teresa upon her death as a horrible fraud, and then when Hitchens died, they warmly remembered how he hated God and Mother Teresa. So it's not surprising that radical leftist and gay activist Gore Vidal was going to be honored without a second of dissent or disapproval of critics. None of the glowing obituaries and…

NBC: Gore Vidal 'Unquestionably Brilliant'; William F. Buckley 'Paid D

August 2nd, 2012 4:28 PM
In a glowing tribute to radical left-wing commentator Gore Vidal on Wednesday's NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams could barely contain his adoration for the "prolific writer" who was "unquestionably brilliant." Williams further gushed that Vidal, "got his larger wish in life, to be remembered as both a polemicist and a man of letters. One of the most active and agile minds of his…

August 2nd, 2012 10:16 AM
“A conservative Republican was beaten by an even more conservative Tea Party candidate,” CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley announced Wednesday night in reporting Ted Cruz’s victory in the Texas Republican primary.

Nets Sing Praises of 'Brilliant' and 'Witty' Gore Vidal; Omit His Left

August 1st, 2012 12:37 PM
The Big Three networks enthusiastically paid tribute to leftist author Gore Vidal on their Wednesday morning newscasts, but not one mentioned his political ideology. NBC's Today devoted two briefs to the "sardonically witty" Vidal, who died late Tuesday. The morning show also labeled him a "cultural icon." ABC's Good Morning America played up his "outsized personality and scathing wit."…

Author Gore Vidal Labels Polanski Victim a ‘Young Hooker

October 28th, 2009 3:54 PM
Plenty of celebrities issued crazy statements in their efforts to defend director and rapist Roman Polanski but none went as far as author Gore Vidal did when he labeled Polanski's victim a "young hooker." In an Oct. 28 interview with The Atlantic's John Meroney about a variety of topics, Vidal claimed he didn't "give a f---" about the Polanski case. "Look, am I going to sit and weep every…

Gore Vidal: Obama 'Too Intelligent' for America; Vidal Adds He Wanted

October 23rd, 2009 8:08 AM
If you haven't gotten your daily dose of left-wing crazy, strap yourself in. On CNN Headline News Oct. 22 broadcast of "The Joy Behar Show," left-wing author and conspiracy theorist Gore Vidal shared his thoughts about President Barack Obama. He said he thought the 44th President of the United States might be a little overqualified - at least as far as his intelligence. "I like him," Vidal…

Gore Vidal Writes About Gates Arrest; Lapses Into Incoherence

July 29th, 2009 11:05 PM
Perhaps it is time to recall William Shatner to the Tonight Show in order to read aloud, accompanied by bongos,  leftwing novelist Gore Vidal's incoherent screed about the Henry Louis Gates arrest. Even Grampa Abe ranting aloud while spinning around on the church floor in "The Simpsons Movie" made more sense than Vidal. Perhaps it could be explained by one too many Ketel Ones but here is his…

Gore Vidal Signs Open Letter to Obama Urging Him Not to Concede Even I

November 3rd, 2008 8:07 AM
If Barack Obama loses the election, will he graciously concede? According to an open letter signed by author Gore Vidal and a gaggle of leftists, Obama should not concede under almost any conditions. If Jon Voight had signed an open letter to John McCain asking him not to concede, that would be big news. So far the only sound from the mainstream media to Gore Vidal's dangerous request is the…
