| Gannon calls Ron Reagan, Jr. 'twinkle toes' and 'nancy boy'
Former White House journalist Jeff Gannon posted a blog entry on the cancellation of Ron Reagan Jr.'s television show on MSNBC. In the post, Gannon refers to the TV host and son of the nation's 40th President as "twinkle toes" and as a "nancy boy." Gannon also calls Reagan, Jr. a "disgrace" to his namesake father.
With Reagan, Jr. no longer hosting a show on the network, Gannon mused that perhaps anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan would host a show on what he called the "worst cable news network."
Here is the post from Gannon's blog:
Nancy's nancy boy nixed
Ron Reagan, Jr., the embarassment [sic] that bears the name of one of the greatest American presidents is out of a job after his daytime talk show was mercifully cancelled last week. MSNBC put Reagan in the host's chair as the result of his election year masquerade as a "journalist" (btw, Twinkle-toes, what's YOUR journalism background?) proved to be a "stick in the eye" to those who revere his father.
Who will be next to have a show on the worst cable news network, Cindy Sheehan? Sooner or later, it will be her turn.
Gannon, who questioned Reagan, Jr.'s credentials as a journalist, was exposed as a a plagiarist on the site Why Are We Back in Iraq. To see paragraph by paragrpah comparisons og Gannon's 'work' to its original source click here.
