Drudge Targets Chris Rock as Oscar Host
Bump and Update: Show Chris some heart and tell the Academy how you feel.
Here's a chance to see how much power conservatives have over MSM. It's just begun in the last couple of days so follow along and see how it plays out.
It begins with Drudge bashing Chris Rock as a choice to host the Oscars due to some quotes from his routines that are sure to enrage conservatives, particularly the radical right and evangelicals.
Drudge expands his reach by taking it to Hannity and Colmes Monday night, where he is granted not one, but two segments-- alone --with no guest taking the other side. Crooks and Liars has the video....
Despite Drudge's ambiguous denials of an agenda to get Rock de-invited to host the Oscars, I'm not buying it. He repeated the same lines by Rock over and over, hoping to cause a firestorm and create a groundswell of support for Rock's ouster.
Variety reports that the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences is firm in having Rock host the Oscars. It also says it hasn't heard any opposition from members. Not only that, the Academy released a firm statement of support today for Rock.
