The Five’s Andrea Tantaros blasted the choice of Sandra Fluke as a candidate for Person of the Year. Not only did she call Fluke a “terrible” choice, she suggested that Time might actually go bankrupt as a result.
“What a terrible, I think, person to elevate. A woman who says, ‘I need the government, I need help, I can’t afford my own birth control.’ I should also point out the girl who was shot by the Taliban… is also on that list. She is a true hero. She is a true woman standing up for women’s rights, and I hope that they choose wisely or they can go the path of Newsweek and go bankrupt by continuing on this ridiculous path of nonsense.”
Speaking of terrible women, this is the same Andrea Tantaros who recently boasted she’d “look fabulous” on a food stamp diet.
Sandra Fluke was (and still is) the face of a major civil/reproductive rights debate. The “War on Women” is the biggest debate in at least the last couple of decades.
The attacks on her from the GOP led women to organize ultiple boycotts, and even Fox News realizes that it impacted the election.
She became one of the most influential names in women’s rights overnight, and other causes now solicit her support.
Women’s rights movements overseas have made her their go-to example for how to expect to be treated, and how to react back.
Media impact? Check. Cultural impact? You bet your ass that’s a check. I’m having trouble thinking of a way the other American candidates even come close.
As a young adultfrom a privileged background who is standing up for the rights of less fortunate women, Sandra is a far better choice for “person of the year” than a 14-year old child. Malala’s case is heart-breaking but it is Sandra’s determined actions that will have ground-breaking (earth-moving) effects.
âWhat a terrible, I think, person to elevate. A woman who says, âI need the government, I need help, I canât afford my own birth control.â
Sandra Fluke was referring to a friend of hers, and not herself, when she testified before Congress. This, I think, proves that even FoxNews hosts are succeptible to believing the lies that FoxNews spewes on a daily basis. That kills the “I can’t afford my own birth control.” lie.
“I need the government, I need help, …”
She seems to be saying that in a durogitory sense. Why? Lots of people need help with a variety of problems that, often times, only the Government can help. Ask those “Sandy” victims, or someone who needs a “first responder,” or there house is on fire, or someone is in there house and they’ve got a gun, or many more.
You’re not in high school anymore, Andrea, so the “mean girls” routine just makes you look petty.

EARTH TO ANDREA TANTAROS:
There are three reasons Time will not go bankrupt, no matter who the hell it chooses as POTY:
1. It is owned by Time Warner, whose revenue in 2011 was over $28 billion
2. Time has the largest circulation of any weekly news magazine in the US (I realize you’re upset that something might actually be more popular than Fox News, just as BillO and Keith Ablowme were about the popularity of the “Gangnam Style” video — but hey, that’s life)
3. Time didn’t go bankrupt after selecting Adolf Hitler 1938, Josef Stalin [1939, 1942], or the Ayatollah Khomeini 1979 Persons Of The Year; I’m sure they won’t in this case
That was when I cancelled my subscription forever.
