David Letterman’s death grip on late-night TV has finally been relinquished, and the only problem is that it didn’t come sooner. Though the mainstream liberal media made Letterman out to be just another of those lovable, hip late-night comedians, he was actually nothing more than a liberal mouthpiece running interference for socialist politicians like Barack Obama and liberal causes like anti-fracking.
Letterman’s infatuated idol worship of Obama has been documented all over the place, such as here, which of course confirms his left-wing allegiance. Obama returned the favor, slavishly gushing all over Dave in his final of 800 or so prior appearances on the Late Show since he’s been POTUS.
Letterman’s aggressive disdain against conservatives, barely concealed as a pitiful stab at comedy, has also been widely documented, such as here. His lies about fracking got so insane that he was even exposed by Forbes Magazine for particularly outrageous fear mongering on the issue.
It’s a shame to see the mainstream media relentlessly praise Letterman as he’s now finally being put out to pasture, but of course that makes sense, too, since the media is full of liberals who love Democrats like Obama and hate conservatives in general. Observing the totally dishonest media coverage, you’d think Letterman was really Saint Letterman, retiring after 30-plus years of performing miracles and “ending” poverty all over the world.
The truth is Letterman was never a comedian or even something close to funny: He was a contemptible liberal shill bashing conservatives and spreading liberal lies as an entertainer to an audience of uniformed, young people.
As if that’s not bad enough, though, the media—in its sendoff to the gap-toothed Indianan—is also refusing to mention Letterman’s chronic womanizing and targeting of young, female employees for sex during his time as host of the Late Show. When you’re gushing all over Dave, it’s hard to remind your readers that Letterman was also about:
- - Having an affair with longtime assistant and staffer Stephanie Birkitt, 30 years his junior
- - Having a fling with intern Holly Hester while she was still in school
- - Blatantly admitting, “The creepy stuff was that I have had sex with women who worked for me on this show.”
Hell, one former writer for Letterman even revealed that his talk-show workplace was rife with sexual favoritism, an environment where more powerful, male staffers would routinely have sex with less powerful, female employees in exchange for workplace status.
Oh yeah, and who can ever forget that he viciously derogated then-14-year-old Willow Palin, daughter of former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, with sexually laced mockery?
From the liberals’ own perspective - the same liberals who remember Letterman as a beautiful human being deserving of endless tributes and celebrations - it goes without saying that everything Dave has done is complete and utter misogyny. Of course, liberals are shameless hypocrites, so denying this is par for the course for them.
Letterman’s replacement is Stephen Colbert, the extremely unfunny and really annoying comedian-cum-kinda-political-commentator whose running gag is relentlessly trying to imitate Bill O’Reilly…or something unfunny like that. Will Colbert replicate the same conservative-defaming, liberal-loving and sexual harassment-flourishing workplace as Dave? Time will tell, but you can bet that we’ll be watching and exposing that, too, if it happens.
