The Great One, Mark Levin reported this interesting nugget about why Senator Jay Rockefeller might have called for the Fox News Channel and MSNBC (sacrificial lamb) to be shut down. It turns out that his wife, Sharon Percy Rockefeller, has been president and CEO of WETA - Public Broadcasting - in Washington, D.C. As such, she presides over both the flagship television and radio stations. Aren't radio stations that fall under the Public Broadcasting umbrella called National Public Radio (NPR)?

Hmmm. What happened recently involving NPR and Fox News Channel? Answer: Juan Williams was fired by NPR and got a big platform, coupled with a sweet contract extension with Fox. That platform - along with overwhelming public support - allowed Williams (and Fox) to bludgeon NPR so successfully that there is serious talk about having them defunded. If you remember, both the left and the right supported Williams. Is that why Rockefeller went after both MSNBC and Fox? Either way, his ire is clearly more directed at Fox and if throwing MSNBC into the pot allows him to portray objectivity, he appears willing to do it.

HERE is Sharon Percy's Bio.
Sharon Percy Rockefeller has served the public broadcasting community for more than 25 years as a leader and policymaker. She has been president and CEO of WETA, Washington, D.C.’s flagship public television and radio stations, since 1989. She continues to guide WETA to outstanding accomplishments in broadcasting and production. Before assuming the top post at WETA, she was a member of WETA’s Board of Trustees for seven years and a member of the board of directors of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting for 12 years, including four years as chairman. In 2006, Rockefeller was elected to the PBS Board of Directors for her fifth term.
If this is the reason, then lost on Rockefeller is the source that caused Williams to be let go. It was the result of pressure applied to NPR by the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR). So why isn't Rockefeller targeting them? Not sure, but it's the same mentality that has led to TSA agents touching American junk.

Here is Levin commenting on Sharon Percy Rockefeller via Freedom's Lighthouse:


The alleged 'White House Insider,' who has been talking to anonymous blogger Ulsterman has maintained quite steadfastly that Pelosi would not stay on as the Democrat leader, though he / she DID predict Pelosi would not stay on as Speaker. As we all learned this week, Pelosi will remain the leader of the Democrat minority. Ulsterman posted another interview with WHI that took place prior to it becoming finalized that Pelosi would be minority leader.

WHI did allow him/herself some wiggle room though. While virtually certain that Pelosi would step down, WHI did discuss what it would mean if she did stay on; the conclusion was it wouldn't be good for the Democrat party but more important, according to WHI, it would mean that she cut a deal with the administration not to leak incredibly damaging information about Obama in exchange for retaining her leadership role.

Via Ulsterman:
Ulsterman: But if Pelosi keeps her leadership position, and it looks like she will —

Insider: I wouldn’t bank on that just yet – we got more and more people telling her to step the -expletive- down. Stand aside. Don’t be surprised to be surprised on that. I said she was done as Speaker, and I was right on that. I said she-she didn’t have the support to be party leader and I still stand by that. Still standin’!

Ulsterman: What if she does stay on as Minority Leader? Any effect on the scandal? Investigations? The Obama White House?

Insider: The number one impact is on the Democratic Party – and it would be a terrible-terrible thing for us. It’s inconceivable. Do you get that? Keep in place the same damn party leadership that cost us to lose 60 odd seats in the House? Why in the hell would we do that? Why? There is just no damn way the party is that stupid. No. Cannot be.

Ulsterman: What other impacts? Complications?

Insider: Of Pelosi staying on as party leader? Plenty. For one, it makes me question myself – my information, and that would make me very-very nervous. I don’t like to receive surprises. Like to give them. Don’t like to get them. That would be a nasty little surprise come my way.
Ulsterman then presses WHI for more clarity on why it would be such a big deal if Pelosi were to remain as minority leader..
Insider: (Hands cover face – then looks back at me.) Ok…ok, here…here is – I strongly suspect Nancy Pelosi has certain information, or parts of information, that-that would be essential to helping certain investigations against the White House. Investigations that could lead all the way to the top. It was my understanding that Pelosi had decided to let this information be known to others, say members of a committee, in her…absence. She would be gone, living the good life out there in California, not part of the investigations, not the cause of the disclosure, you know, that kind of scenario – though I think she has let some stuff get out there already as a way of telling the White House to back the -expletive- off. But by laying back on all of it, she would have necessary separation from it all. Do you understand?
Sound credible?

Keep watching Robert Gibbs. Remember, WHI said he would be leaving soon and the clock is ticking. If Gibbs doesn't go soon, WHI could start losing readers.
