Longtime Journalist Fired for Slur Against Trump

Believe it or not, some news agencies will not permit a free-for-all on Donald Trump.

Bill Crane, appearing on WSB-TV, found that out the hard way.

Crane went for a quick laugh, calling Trump “Orange face.”

His bosses did not think it was all that funny, and now Crane is out of a job.

Can’t Say That

WSB was discussing Graham being called to testify regarding the 2020 election in Georgia.

Crane observed, “Labor Day is when undecided voters and nonaligned voters really start focusing on the election ahead.

“And keeping Donald Trump and his fantasy of elections being stolen in November of 2020 in play keeps Donald Trump and his looming orange face in front of voters at a time when they’re trying to decide how they’re going to vote.”

Ray Carter, the vice president and general manager of WSB-TV, announced the parting of ways with Crane on Monday.

He stated that Crane’s comments “are not aligned with our commitment to fair and unbiased reporting and analysis.”

He was terminated “effective immediately.”

Crane did the obligatory apology, then tried to justify the comments by adding that he tries to “call the hard balls and strikes on either side, and attempt to do so with a bit of humor, sarcasm, the occasional pun and tongue in cheek.”

He added, “I have worked in senior staff positions on both sides of the aisle and consider many of those folks, Democrats and Republicans, as friends and mentors.

“The ego is bruised, and I am a bit down … but not out.”

Crane has been with the network since 2006.

Sean Hannity better watch out, as the precedent has been set, so he better stop calling Biden “Sippy Cup Joe,” or he could be next!

  1. “Sean Hannity better watch out, as the precedent has been set, so he better stop calling Biden “Sippy Cup Joe,” or he could be next!”

    But Biden is sippy cup Joe for sure so it is the truth he is stating.

  2. Well great, another idiot out of the way. But, who the hell decided that the media personalities run the country anyway? Many millions of American citizens all have a brain, and can think for themselves. If that thinking has been twisted by media bias, well that is to there own detriment. What did they teach us way back when learning computer science in college…. “Garbage in, Garbage out”. We cannot do anything about the fools that listen to garbage and believe it. And we cannot do anything about those that produce it. The only course of action is to be discerning in our processing of the information they spew. It is not an easy row to hoe, but that is the only way a reasonable person can get past the BS. Question everything.

    1. Rufus, Your email is so true. The problem is our kids are graduating from
      high-school without the ability of a third grader to think. Many people who hear the news on TV think it has to be true. I live in a senior community and
      many of these people are stupid. I cannot say much.

  3. Naw !You don’t want to fire them. They have a habit of telling the opposition what their plans are and are pretty good at it.
