A couple other things worth noting about Loesch's rant. First, Loesch posted the advertisement paid for by Ed Martin on her Dana Show blog without any acknowledgement that it came from her husband's studio and was paid for by Martin:
She also tweeted about it without acknowleging the conflict of interest:
Second, she claims that all of this was because she had Ed Martin on her show one time:
Since I once had Martin on my show months ago, before I went full time and my show went to a daypart to talk about an initiative for the troops in which he took part, the candidate trumpeted that I was “in Martin’s pocket.”In fact, Loesch has had Ed Martin on her show many times, and generally not, as she claims, for the troops.
So it's not entirely clear why Loesch wants to claim that she only had Martin on her show once, but that claims clearly false.
Third, Loesch, trying to act cool, tried to pretend that she only heard about the post after she got "three hits" from the RFT site:
It was then perpetuated by a lazy blogger for the Riverfront Times who mistook defamation and libel for content. I knew they wrote about it when I saw that I had a whole three hits from their blog.But, the RFT post didn't even link to Loesch's site, and her husband Chris was ranting about this online on Monday, so her attempt to be aloof didn't quite work out.
Anyway, I'll have to keep my eye out for her next 1,000 word rant on a "non-issue."
