Found this at Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. Will this lunatic ever shut up and just retire already?
If you can’t beat ‘em, buy ‘em out. That seems to be Pat Robertson’s policy for press criticism.
After decades of operating a faux-news operation from his “700 Club” perch at the Christian Broadcasting Network, Robertson is now expressing interest in purchasing The Virginian-Pilot, a real news organ that has offered critical coverage of the TV evangelist.
“Although the price for The Weather Channel is a little rich for my blood, I am considering a potential bid for the Pilot and have asked my attorneys to look into it,” Robertson said in an e-mail sent by his assistant, G.G. Conklin. “It would be particularly helpful to provide internships for Regent University journalism students.”
I’ll bet it would be! Regent University’s motto is “Christian Leadership to Change the World”. A world dominated by Xian theocracy . . .scary!
