"A well-known journalist was fired this week by a radio station in Houston after he featured excerpts from a shocking interview with a woman who was forced to undergo several medically unnecessary transvaginal sonograms to obtain an abortion, leaving the reporter wondering if he was canned over abortion politics, rather than station policy.
Of course, that's not the reason they gave for firing him--oh no-- there was some little face-saving, ass-covering whoopdeedoo that nobody believes about subbing for the host of a non profit radio show which theoretically violated some agreement he had signed ( yeah, sure-- ho hum--go on over to the Raw Story and read all about it). It's the good old appearance/reality syndrome once again folks. The boys in the back room have their panties in a twist over Braddock's even handed professional handling of Texas's new trans-vaginal ultrasound law and they don't take kindly to anyone telling them how to handle their women or their horses. No sireee they don't.
Here's a link to Texas free-lance writer, Carolyn Jone's moving piece on her personal ordeal which originally appeared in The Texas Observer. It was Scott Braddock's interview with her when he was filling in for host Geoff Berg on the show Partisan Gridlock, that started the whole bruhaha
I've gone over Braddock's Bio and listened to some of his clips and I cannot believe that in the country that I am a citizen of, an idiot like Rush Limbaugh can get away with calling a young woman law student a slut and make disgusting insinuations about women in general. while a hard-working fair minded journalist like Scott Braddock gets fired for simply wanting to air all sides of an issue. Where is that much vaunted liberal media bias that the right is always talking about?
Everything is bigger in Texas, but the video below, which was made when Virginia passed a similar law requiring trans vaginal abortions applies to Texas too. A tip of the hat to Zina Saunders for making it.
