Quaid to Meg -- Shut It, For Jack's Sake!

9/29/2008 3:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dennis Quaid has heard just about enough squawking from Meg Ryan about their messy divorce.

And now he's swinging back at her, telling Rush & Molloy she's "unbelievable" for dishing on the breakup while pushing her latest flick, "The Women." He's especially PO'd that their son Jack has to relive the whole thing again in the press.

Meg told mags and shows Dennis was unfaithful and wanted to "fill in the gaps" for people.

Hasselbeck "Really Upset" with Left Leaners


Not that she doesn't make this entirely obvious on the show, but Elisabeth Hasselbeck is apparently "really upset" with her left-field co-stars Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg.

Of course, as a "longtime staff member" tells the Chicago Sun-Times, "It's not as bad as during the Rosie era," but Barbara Walters has had to intervene and call a "cooling off" meeting to keep things from boiling over.

Buzz is -- Elisabeth might spend some time over at FOX News, possibly anchoring her own show.

Dupri Gives Back on His Birthday


As TMZ knows – because we were there -- Jermaine Dupri had a great time on his birthday. And now we're finding out just how great.

Spies at Tenjune tell the New York Post Jermaine was partying with Ne-Yo, Busta Rhymes, and Ice-T into the night, but things ended a bit abruptly for Dupri when he booted into Ms. Jackson's lap. Janet bailed immediately.

The poison of choice for revelers was Jay-Z's Ace of Spades and Patron. Jackson and Dupri's reps didn't comment.

Goodmorning    

Chicago ( Obama ) Politics:
Body count in the last six months:
- 292 murdered in Chicago,
- 221 killed in Iraq.

Our leadership in Illinois: Sen. Barack Obama, Sen. D ick Durbin,
Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr., Gov. Rod Blogojevich, House leader Mike Madigan,
Atty. Gen. Lisa Madigan, Mayor Richard Daley .....all Democrats.

Thank you for the combat zone in Chicago.

Of course they're all blaming each other.

Can't blame Republicans, they're aren't any!

State pension fund $44 Billion in debt, worst in country.

Cook County (Chicago) sales tax 10.25%, highest in country.

Chicago school system one of the worst in country.

This is the political machine that Obama says he comes from in Illinois.

Now Obama says he's gonna "fix" Washington politics?

Let's hope Hasslebeck goes to Fox. At Least she would be happy to be near Sean Hannity. Her stint on Huckabee's stupid show
was lame. But that's Fox!

Wha wha wha... Elizabeth is a whiny little brat who cries every time someone does not agree with her. You conservatives need to grow a pair and stop being such HUGE babies. I have NEVER seen so many comments by so many weak little people. If she can't stand the heat she needs to get out of the kitchen... or go over to FOX where no one will disagree with her because they are the media wing for the Republican Party.

The problem with Elizabeth is she thinks her opinion is the only one that matters and she is always right.And that everyone else is wrong!I love the fact that Joy and Whoppi won't back down from her and are not afraid to speak their minds!I think Elizabeth needs to just accept the fact that just because she is Republican doesn't mean she is perfect and doesn't mean her opinion is the only one that matters!Give her hell Joy and Whoppi!

Pretty typical of Elisabeth (or any Republican really) to be pissed off because everyone doesn't have your exact opinion. Why is it so hard to grasp that not everyone agrees? If Rosie was bad, Elisabeth is her exact opposite and just as bad on the other side of things. I don't watch the View, partly because it's just annoying to watch them talk, and partly because Elisabeth has no braincells and just spews back whatever she sees in political advertisements. How hard is it for her to learn to make decisions without someone else telling her to? Apparently pretty difficult.

What is the common denominator to the personnel problems The View have been having? Elisabeth Hasselbeck. She is what is known as a problem employee and needs to be replaced.
May I suggest Margaret Hoover? She's a Republican commentator who speaks intelligently and forcefully for the conservative side without the hysterical whining Ms. Hasselbeck often displays. And I've never seen Ms. Hoover become louder and ruder and talk over people as she expresses her opinions.

I remember it was Meg who was screwing around with Russell Crowe when she left Dennis Quaid.

Elizebeth should tell the old fossil Baba WaWa to stick it and split to FOX. The View is nothing but a bunch of hags who stink. Joy Behar is like two-day old tuna, pure stink.

As far as Jermaine Dupri goes, who cares about this criminal no talent puke? Really, who the f**k cares about Jermaine?

#28- Here I am, those are incredible stats, but most people don't want to hear the truth because it really would set them free. Remember this is the change you can believe in. Bush has not been a good president and us conservative can say that, but the democrats never admit anyone is a bad candidate or political hack. When Elisabeth just call it what it should be the liberal View.

As my father used to say, Elisabitch is a "fast talker". I watch the View everyday and I see her interrupt both guests and the panel. She can be heard commenting under her breath when she doesn't agree with a point! I have seen her 'tear' up when she feels cornered! I also can't stand the sound of her voice, it's just so winey!
Send her to FOX, that's where she belongs!

Goodmorning    

The mainstream media have gone over the line and are now straight-out propagandists for the Obama campaign.

While they have been liberal and blinkered in their worldview for decades, in 2007-08, for the first time, the major media consciously are covering for one candidate for president and consciously are knifing the other. This is no longer journalism; it is simply propaganda. (The American left-wing version of the Volkischer Beobachter cannot be far behind.)

And as a result, we are less than seven weeks away from possibly electing a president who has not been thoroughly or even halfway honestly presented to the country by our watchdogs — the press. The image of Obama that the press has presented to the public is not a fair approximation of the real man. They consciously have ignored whole years of his life and have shown a lack of curiosity about such gaps, which bespeaks a lack of journalistic instinct.

Thus, the public image of Obama is of a "man who never was."

So, too, the man the media have presented to the nation as Obama is not the real man.

The mainstream media ruthlessly and endlessly repeat any McCain gaffes while ignoring Obama gaffes. You have to go to weird little Web sites to see all the stammering and stuttering that Obama needs before getting out a sentence fragment or two. But all you see on the networks is an eventually clear sentence from Obama. You don't see Obama's ludicrous gaffe that Iran is a tiny country and no threat to us. Nor his 57 American states gaffe. Nor his forgetting, if he ever knew, that Russia has a veto in the U.N. Nor his whining and puerile "come on" when he is being challenged. This is the kind of editing one would expect from Goebbels' disciples, not Cronkite's.

More appalling, a skit on NBC's "Saturday Night Live" last weekend suggested that Gov. Palin's husband had sex with his own daughters. That show was written with the assistance of Al Franken, Democratic Party candidate in Minnesota for the U.S. Senate. Talk about incest.

But worse than all the unfair and distorted reporting and image projecting are the shocking gaps in Obama's life that are not reported at all. The major media simply have not reported on Obama's two years at New York's Columbia University, where, among other things, he lived a mere quarter-mile from former terrorist Bill Ayers. Later, they both ended up as neighbors and associates in Chicago. Obama denies more than a passing relationship with Ayers. Should the media be curious? In only two weeks, the media have focused on all the colleges Gov. Palin has attended, her husband's driving habits 20 years ago, and the close criticism of the political opponents Gov. Palin had when she was mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. But in two years, they haven't bothered to see how close Obama was with the terrorist Ayers.

Nor have the media paid any serious attention to Obama's rise in Chicago politics. How did honest Obama rise in the famously sordid Chicago political machine with the full support of Boss Daley? Despite the great — and unflattering — details on Obama's Chicago years presented in David Freddoso's new book on Obama, the mainstream media continue to ignore both the facts and the book. It took a British publication, The Economist, to give Freddoso's book a review with fair comment.

The public image of Obama as an idealistic, post-race, post-partisan, well-spoken and honest young man with the wisdom and courage befitting a great national leader is a confection spun by a willing conspiracy of Obama, his publicist (David Axelrod) and most of the senior editors, producers and reporters of the national media.

Perhaps that is why the National Journal's respected correspondent Stuart Taylor wrote, "The media can no longer be trusted to provide accurate and fair campaign reporting and analysis."

That conspiracy not only has Photoshopped out all of Obama's imperfections (and dirtied up his opponent McCain's image) but also has put most of his questionable history down the memory hole.

The public will be voting based on the idealized image of the man who never was. If he wins, however, we will be governed by the sunken, cynical man Obama really is. One can only hope that the senior journalists will be judged as harshly for their professional misconduct as Wall Street's leaders currently are for their failings.
