Ya gotta love it. Martha MacCallum is an alleged "news" anchor or an alleged Fox "news" show. Not only does she defend GOP talking points; but she makes baseless pronouncements on business ethics in foreign countries. This week, she and Roger Ailes boy toy Fox religion analyst. Fr. Jonathan Morris discussed the Vatican leak scandal which now includes the arrest of Il Papa Benedict's butler. After Morris referenced Vatican corruption, MacCallum tried to establish moral equivalency between the Vatican and the Italian business community. She said that "there's a history of corruption, all truth be told, that exists in most businesses, it would seem, in Italy that there's cronyism, paying off people, you know to get business contracts..." So there you have it. Fox News says most Italian business are corrupt. Questo è un insulto? Wonder if Martha would say the same thing about American businesses? Mamma Mia...
Italy (and its sub-culture the Vatican) is TOTALLY right wing conservative….and corrupt. Berlusconi???? Mussulini? These people make me embarrassed to be of Italian descent.
Methinks Mad Martha is about to get a little “visit” — only it won’t be from Fox News Security . . .
Now. Let’s see how Roger Ailes compares. Italian? No. (Of course, has anyone seen Ailes’ birth certificate? The “long-form?”) Capitalist? Check. Corrupt? I’m gonna mark it as “Check” (he’s aligned with Rupert Murdoch who owns FoxNoise and we all know about Murdoch; Ailes has to know just as much—unless he only gets his news from FoxNoise). Right-winger? Major, major check. Thinks the law doesn’t apply to him? Pretty much, check. Vatican buddy? Oh, major, MAJOR check.
Hmmmm. Maybe I’m on to something. It’s less about “Italian” and more about “Vatican buddy.”
