Jay Levine to WIND Host: Stop Questioning Emanuel or “I’m Gonna Deck You”

Big Government 13 October 2010 5 Comments

We’ve often said that the media “protects” President Obama but this video from WIND radio host and Big Blogs contributor William Kelly shows this allegation literally.

Kelly, a Chicagoan, was there when Rahm Emmanuel was pressing the flesh, kissing babies, and greeting reporters. Emmanuel didn’t account for unassuming Kelly to fire off serious journalistic questions more pressing than the requisite “how’s it feel to be back?”

Kelly didn’t account for was the manner in which Chicago reporters behaved. Are these reporters or palace guards? In the video you see them physically move to shield Emmanuel from Kelly’s questioning, as though their backs alone would deflect the questions. Kelly is berated and shoved by mainstream media journalists, but the scene stealer is when CBS2’s Jay Levine (who has not responded to my requests for comment) screams at Kelly, “Let him finish or I’m gonna deck you!”

    This Kelly guy is a jerk. I’m wondering if he authored the above article??? A real journalist would know that there are several misspelled words in it.

    Bill Kelly is a joke. He’s not a journalist or a reporter, he’s a joke. His show is brokered time.

  • JMK said:

    Kelly is a character, but he asks more intelligent questions than Jay Levine. And many radio shows in Chicago have been brokered, including some of the most popular. I don’t see how the business arrangements with the media carrier effects the quality of the questions.

  • Content Doc said:

    Levine is an arrogant, egotist with no guts. Kelly bothers him because he asks questions Levine couldn’t think of. Time to retire Levine…you’re getting old…what a waste of flesh.

    Kelly is part of the alternative media, which is much more credible than the paid off talking heads of CBS, NBC & ABC. The alternative media will always ask the obvious questions. Wake up people!!!
