Every now and then, it gets to them

Every once in a while, even a FOX on-air personality can't take the toxic sludge that spews out of the FOX/AM radio/ right-wingblogosphere. It's happened to Shep Smith a couple of times. (here) And Megyn Kelly had some pushback against the misogyny recently. This time, it's Greta Van Sustren

Here's her take on right-wing fixture Erick Erickson, the droplet of butt-crack sweat that taught itself to talk and thought its opinions should matter:

What is wrong with this guy? He is such a jerk! He is a repeat offender!

Apparently, she has a middle-schooler compose her headlines.

I don’t care how much you disagree or agree with Texas’ Wendy Davis, you have to agree that this guy, Erick Erickson, is a real jerk and is really lousy at being a spokesperson for his views:

And for some reason, she writes in italics.

Calling her an “Abortion Barbie?” 
Really? Does he think that makes him look smarter?  It makes me think he is a jerk.  

Of course he's a "jerk!" That's the first line in the job description for right-wing commentator! You have to be rude, offensive, insensitive, morally bankrupt and intellectually dishonest or they toss your resume' in the trash before the first interview. How long have you been with FOX?
Have you not met this guy?

PS – I read someplace that he was a CNN contributor and is a Fox News contributor.  He has never been on TV with me.  His name sounded familiar and I checked back on GretaWire and I blogged about him once before May 30, 2013.  CLICK HERE 

Oh, come on! You're seriously going to pretend you didn't know he was a FOX guy? You work at FOX! I don't even watch your crapfest network and I knew that!

Just quit.
Quit working for this open sewer of an organization. Quit working for a network that routinely makes sexism and misogyny a filler between homophobia, race-baiting, and victim-bashing. You're shocked by the comments coming from the men of FOX? Quit! Storm out. March into Murdoch's office, flip his desk over and shout "fuck all y'all" as security drags you out. It isn't like these comments are anomalies. It isn't like there are a few bad apples there that, once they've been dealt with, FOX will become a decent, inclusive workplace. Have you met the guy who runs this place?

It's like you went to work for the mafia and you're shocked that your co-workers keep shooting people!
