Ben Swan co worker at Fox 19 suspended for calling Rachel Maddow "angry young man"

A Fox news anchor was back on the air Tuesday night following a 2-day suspension for calling MSNBC host Rachel Maddow an "angry young man" on Facebook.

Tricia Macke, an anchor for Ohio's Fox 19, took to her personal Facebook page last month to rant against the cable news personality, writing "Rachel Maddow is such an angry young man" on Oct. 12.
She was quickly criticized by her Facebook followers, who compared the comment to making racist jokes.

"I am sorry," Macke wrote to one such fan. "I should have said antagonistic."

Commenters then took issue with the fact that the anchor did not acknowledge that her choice of words in calling Maddow a "man" was offensive.

"I knew what I was saying," Macke responded.

sounds more like jealousy

they must be lovers! ;-)

Now I could see getting upset if it was called ..

a Carpet Muncher because that would be hitting below the belt..(butup bump Rim Shot) but serious folks the slender Fred Savage is VERY understanding and Im sure it would have no problem being refered to as a "angry young man" because it looks like and sounds like an "angry young man" sometimes!! IT DOES!! The PC crowd needs to take a CHILL PILL!! Or maybe a hit or 2 of a good Indica Strain..M-E-L-L-O-W Oooooout you UpTighters! ;O)

Now, that is funny... BTW,

Now, that is funny... BTW, most humor is t the expense of someone... so everyone needs to chill the hell out..

If you disagree with me on anything you are not a real libertarian...

wasn't this her personal

wasn't this her personal facebook page? so now fox 19 owns her personal views?

Unfortunately, she may be

Unfortunately, she may be under contract to follow certain guidelines when it comes to her public persona.

funniest comment I saw...she's an anorexic Fred Savage...

It seems like to the liberals, humor is a one-way street!

Not gonna lie.

I've made the same basic joke on this forum...

She IS pretty masculine

She IS pretty masculine looking. Just sayin...

A few years ago

I was in downtown Cincy at a food festival and was standing about 3 feet from Tricia. She is a stone cold Babe. Her pic doen't do her justice....up close in real life Tricia is hot hot hot! I am telling you guys you would not kick her out of bed...what a bod! She is tall too...I am 5"10 and she is an inch or two taller than me. Beautiful blues eyes, long sexy legs...mmmmmm delicious! trust me.

Instead of suspending her...

They should have just told her to grow up. And don't forget Maddow was the only MSM source that talked about how RP was getting railroaded on the path the Republican nomination. The only thing Tricia is good for is introducing Ben Swann's segments and "reading the news". Ben is out there researching and "finding the news".

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

Sorry but

The only reason Maddow ever cozied up to Dr. Paul was to try and grow a bigger divide in the republican party or to highlight the crap already going on. She never did anything to help Dr. Paul, only tried to use him to advance her own bullshit. She is a basic statist hack through and through.

Quite so.

But in his/her defense, she can only read cue-cards, it is not like he/she has a thought of his/her own.

Please, you gotta be some

Please, you gotta be some kind of stupid to think that Maddow actually gives half a damn about Ron Paul. She knows Paul supporters love hearing positive stories about him on the MSM, so she curried favor with the movement by pushing a few EXTREMELY SOFT stories so she could get ratings out of us.

Simple Facts and Plain Arguments
A common sense take on politics and current events.


I never said that

Whatever her intentions, more people who pay attention to the MSM actually heard more about Ron Paul in the midst of a total RP blackout. I know several people who first heard about him from Maddow.

Please don't call me or anyone else stupid. You don't have all the answers or all the knowledge in the world.

She also attacked Ron Paul for being a racist. I think it is what ever helps Obama, and hurts Romney. She doesn't like Ron Paul at all.

Oh I know

But hopefully some of what she said during the primaries woke some people up. I'm not actually defending Maddow. I just disagree with Macke and a lot of the people supporting her on this thread and others.

You have a problem with Maddow then say why. Childish attacks like this weaken one's own position. I do my best to follow WWRPD, and I know Dr. Paul would attack her actions as a journalist and leave out anything personal.

I am not always successful at this and neither is Macke or anyone else. She apologized to Maddow and she may actually have meant it; you never know. I publicly called out (not attacked) a user here a couple of weeks ago and I was wrong for doing it in that manner and sincerely apologized.

Always better to take the high road.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

I think it's fair to say

That Maddow looks alot like Justin Bieber. Or vice versa. Her show makes my skin crawl as much as his music that's for sure. In a bad way, not the fun tingle up your leg thing like Chris Mattews gets.

Although... saying she looks

Although... saying she looks like Bieber is saying she looks very much like a woman.

It's hard to tell what is what these days

Young men are so metrosexual I mistake them for females all the time. Then you have the gals wearing low jeans showing butt crack, I think they are metrosexual skaters dudes.

Freaks me out, all of it! lol

had to go there huh?

reading them 2 names in the same sentence
made that gagger thing in my throat quiver :)

Leave an indelible mark on all of those that you meet.
OH... have fun day :)

Hahaha, sorry

So which is which?

The comment was very accurate so what's the problem?

Well, I'm stumped

I just have to go with who I'm told which is which by the media hahaha.

Oh great, more politicaly

Oh great, more politicaly incorrect thought crimes being monitored by the PC police.

What I don't understand

maddow is a lesbian, probably wants to be a man, so what is the problem? Why would they suspend her for calling Maddow a man, when that is what she wants to be. lol

Political Correctness

Has got to stop!


From a gender perspective, gender being a social construction, Is Rachel a man or a woman? I say a little of both. So what is the big deal? We can't see her (lady) parts in order to make a determination about sex.

Her/Him being angry is not deniable.

Folks. we need to wake up. Liberty is being hammered by all of these interest groups with axes to grind. We get called every bogeyman name in the book. We need to fight back harder. That means using ridicule in the same way they do. Love him or hate him - you have to give Rush Limbaugh credit for being one of the few to override racial/gender/sex prohibitions on humor. These cultural Marxists are killing us with their righteousness free speech blackmail. The cut our balls off with this stuff. No more I say.
