NewsBuster Brad Wilmouth reports on how government-controlled television is spending your hard-earned tax dollars:
On Friday’s Need to Know program on PBS, during the show’s semi-regular allegedly humor-based "Next Week’s News" portion of the show, Andrew Borowitz devoted the entire segment to mocking Sarah Palin’s intelligence as he faux-predicted that, after winning the 2012 presidential election, "Her first official act will be to cancel the agreement between nouns and verbs," and that she will then "replace the English language with ‘Palinese,’ a language known only to her."The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), is a government-created non-profit which channels federal funds to Palin-bashing National Public Radio and PBS. This year alone, American taxpayers are spending $420 million to fund CPB, roughly 13 percent of the leftist corporation's budget.
Using Palin’s recent "refudiate" Twitter misspelling as a premise, Borowitz made up other words to jab the former Alaska governor’s intelligence, as he alluded to her history of writing notes on her hands, and used the made-up word "rignorant" to portray her as stupid for wanting to continue oil drilling in the ocean after the BP oil spill disaster.
The "Next Week’s News" segment has a history of taking shots at the intelligence of conservatives as, on the second episode of the series back in May, Palin and Supreme Court Justice Clarence were both targets of ridicule. And in the first episode, Borowitz also suggested that Palin and Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann are two of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
