Former TV News Anchorwoman to Purchase Cindy Sheehan’s Camp Casey
The next time someone tells you that there aren’t any liberals in the media, make sure to point out the following to said person.
Former WCBS TV (New York) and KCBS TV (Los Angeles) anchorwoman Bree Walker is buying Cindy Sheehan’s Camp Casey near President Bush’s ranch in Crawford, Texas.
For those unfamiliar with Walker, she is now a "progressive" talk radio host on Air America’s affiliate KTLK in Los Angeles.
As reported by the Associated Press:
Cindy Sheehan will sell her war protest site near President Bush's ranch to a California radio talk show host, who will preserve it as a peace memorial, her spokeswoman said.
Sheehan, who announced on Memorial Day that she was stepping down as the face of the anti-war movement, will sell the 5-acre site in Crawford for $87,000 to Bree Walker, Sheehan spokeswoman Tiffany Burns said.
Liberal media bias? What liberal media bias?
As an interesting sidebar, Sheehan paid $57,250 for the property, giving her a nice little 52 percent return on her money in less than a year.
As the funds to buy the land came from insurance money she received after her son Casey was killed in Iraq, a cynical person could make the case that she’s profiting from a war she's been protesting against.
Of course, we know that only warmongering conservatives can do that thereby likely making this an angle the media won’t be covering.
Or, is that just too darned cynical?
