Alan Grayson, Still trying to dishonestly scare people into giving him their money

05 May

Remember Alan Grayson, the Florida Democrat who was voted out of office after producing one of the most dishonest ads in the history of Florida politics. He is at it again and today he sent out a fundraising letter from the Committee to Elect Alan Grayson. I am not sure what office he is seeking but this appeal claims that if the sale of an Orlando TV station to a Christian media company is approved by the FCC, the children of Orlando will never see Big Bird and the gang from Seasame Street  again.

Dear Martin,

For 46 years, Orlando, Florida has enjoyed public television and radio. And if the Religious Right has its way, that’s over.

Why should we care? Well, Big Bird helped teach my five children how to read. Maybe yours, too. My children have enjoyed Arthur, Dinosaur Train, Bob the Builder, the Magic School Bus, and Teletubbies. And I’ve enjoyed the PBS News Hour, Frontline, the American Experience, and Nova.

Unfortunately, however, the “Daystar Television Network,” a Christian broadcasting outfit, has waived $4 million under the noses of the directors of WMFE. (Due to inflation, what cost 30 pieces of silver in biblical times now goes for $4 million.) And the WMFE directors want to sell – to sell out.

But you can help to stop them, and keep Big Bird on the air in Orlando.

Everyone always complains about the media. Well, here’s something you can do about it. Let’s keep good TV on TVPlease help.

Courage,

Alan Grayson

Paid for and Authorized by the Committee to Elect Alan Grayson

Of course the problem is that it is not true; oh sure enough the PBS affiliate WMFE which has been experiencing financial hardship for several months, is in the process of being sold, but according to Florida Today, the children of Orlando will not be without Big Bird and Elmo, or Bert and Ernie.

As a Christian media company moves to buy WMFE, the public broadcasting television station in Orlando, Brevard County viewers will have two options to see PBS programming.

WDSC, the station at Daytona State College, and WBCC, at Brevard Community College are already available on Brighthouse, DirecTV and AT&T’s U-verse. The two stations do not air “NewsHour,” but they do carry “Sesame Street” and other popular shows. One of them could take over the role of flagship station in the Central Florida PBS market as WMFE goes off the air.

It just goes to show you that you don’t have to be a sitting congressman to be a lying slime-slathered reptilian wearing a human suit.

    Alan Grayson is a wonderful human being who has a few issues that should be of concern to his local populace.

    It’s really not a good idea that Mr. Grayson be allowed to communicate with the unsuspecting public. I wouldn’t prevent it. I would just, AHEM, discourage it for the good of the locals.

    Mr. Grayson seems to be careening towards ‘an episode’.

    Does anyone know if the patient is armed? Just curious.

    The man seems to be highly unstable.

    It reminds me of an old breakfast cereal commercial.

    Cuckooo for Cocoa Puffs.

    Alan grayson obviously thinks that there are other human beings that are as twisted and socially challenged as himself.. I can only imagine what a horrific existence it must be to know what a slime-puke s^*t stain you are and still see the same thing in the mirror every morning.. grayson does not suffer from any moral restraints in his words, or actions, and does not understand why the population at large doesn’t ignore the necessity for credibility in what they’re being told and just accept him as a leader.. He’s a dangerous megalomaniac who has proven with his slip and fall practice that he will not respect honesty, and if his words and the truth intersect, it is purely coincidental.. He is one of the very few human beings I truly detest..

    Those two options are cable.

    I like Grayson. I wish there were a lot more like him in politics,

    And a lot fewer Republicans – who really do tell lies. Whoppers. Free trade, free markets, supply-side economics, ‘job creators’…. More than three decades of Republican lies, and there are still some so blind that they are still buying them.

      Yes. You really have it all figured out, don’t you Mackintosh. Less Free trade. Less Free markets. Less Freedom in general. Isn’t that what you’re saying? Less Free expression. Wouldn’t you agree with that, too?

      Fascist.
