What about her brother Leavenworth?
 
2012-04-15 05:34:07 AM  
Is there a reason Roger Ailes had a reason to comment on her name in the first place?

I'd do time there.

Chimperror2: wow. Libtards have a severely underdeveloped sense of humor.

/Ailes should reply that he knows she was named after the Virgin Mary since she would be slightly more wrinkly if she was named before the Virgin Mary.


Unlike yourself, who merely has severely underdeveloped sense.

Wait till you guys find out what Santorum was named after.
 
2012-04-15 06:00:49 AM  
wait? she wasn't named after the prison?

/i just assumed her folks were from California... the more you know.

UCFRoadWarrior: I heard Shepard Smith was named after someone who shtooped sheep

Also heard Piers Morgan was named after a place where they park ships


Huh. UCF is even worse than I thought.

Well, yeah, but why would it even occur to him to talk about the subject of her name at all? It's a weird and surreal topic to even begin talking about.

FTFA:"African-Americans assume I'm named after the notorious Soledad prison or Mount Soledad in California"

Which means, if Ailes thinks that he is also African American, so all of you hating on him are RACIST.

That's right.

Uh huh.

Neeek: Is there a reason Roger Ailes had a reason to comment on her name in the first place?


Was he supposed to criticize her on the quality of her journalism? He's not exactly in a position to do that.

cman: Sabyen91: cman: Why is this in the politics tab?

Are you farking stupid? Roger Ailes is a political hack and you know it. Fake ass troll.

I ask a simple question and I get accused of trolling?

Charlie Sheen talks a lot about 9/11 and politics, yet whenever he gets a greenie, it always goes in the Entertainment tab. Although these people dabble in politics, yes, that does not mean that it dominates their lives 24/7


Politics dominates EVERYONE'S lives 24/7. As it should.

You would insult the only Fox personality who has a whit of journalistic integrity. A Freeper hating RINO's! Shocking!

He's the Republican operative who founded Fox News, to misinform the nation.

Roger Ailes starts with R and ends with S, just like Rikers. Suspicious.

Was that the one about nuns in prison? I think I saw that. It was pretty hot.

cman: Why is this in the politics tab?


Because Fox News is a distributor of right wing propaganda.

ecmoRandomNumbers: AeAe: Sabyen91: farkityfarker: Is it possible that he really didn't know that the term "Soledad" has far more meaning than just a prison name?

Probably not. When someone has a name you don't usually think...prison name, so he might just be one farked up moron.

It's funny, because as a parent, I named my girl "Alcatraz"... such a beautiful name.

Alcatraz is a bird (pelican or gannet, depending on the region) in Spanish. It comes from Arabic the terrorist language.

Why? Soledad is a nice name when you pronounce it correctly.

I guess, and living in South TX, I can.

Funny thing about it, I never thought of the connotations of that name until it was brought up, before that, it was just a name like any other.
 
2012-04-15 09:24:47 AM  
What a pathetic excuse for a human being. How filled with hate do you have to be to make such a transparent, petty attack on someone.

My name is altogether too long for Americans, who've always struggled with it. It's even too long for a driver's license. African-Americans assume I'm named after the notorious Soledad prison or Mount Soledad in California. Latinos want to know if I'm lonely.

It's good to know Latinos are less likely to be criminals.

Soledad used to be the host of a computer-tech-related show early in her career, and damn, she was hot then. Seemed to really be into the show too, only later did it turn out she thought the whole thing was lame. Especially having to interact with a virtual co-star called Dev Null.

Seems like she could have saved herself all that trouble by going by "Maria", no? There. No more confusion.
 
2012-04-15 10:10:01 AM  
So what you're named after matters somehow?

Any journalism professor who brings Roger Ailes in should be at least put on a sabbatical.

WhackingDay: Seems like she could have saved herself all that trouble by going by "Maria", no? There. No more confusion.


There are probably thousands of women named "Maria" trying to come up in journalism. I guarantee going by "Soledad" was a way for her to stand out from the crowd. An ignorant comment here and there? Meh. I'm sure it's a worthwhile tradeoff for her.
 
2012-04-15 10:35:45 AM  

cman: Why is this in the politics tab?


Because Fox News is the only major network that covers news in a Fair and Balanced way.
Unfortunately for the libs that sometimes means something negative is said about something happening in the 0bama administration that they cover which eventually forces the other networks to cover (such as they don't pay women as much as men, fast and furious, Solyndra).
That gets people all upset.
Therefore anything negative which can be said about Ailes is a political defense of 0bama.

I doubt the "girl named after a prison" remark was caused by "confusion."

how many conservative commentators are on ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC (although they hardly count as "major network" anymore)?

Well that explains how he ended up on the wrong side of the law.

His father disappeared before he was born, his mom spent time in prison, dude never had a chance.

This is why single moms shouldn't have custody, orphanages for everyone without a male and female parent.

You are one of the least talented trolls I've ever seen on fark. You have absolutely no farking subtlety. You're like a giant retard smashing plates to amuse himself. No one finds you even mildly clever. It's kind of sad watching you try to garner attention. I imagine it has been this way most of your life.

Mary and Theresa are very very common names in Catholic circles while Soledad is not common at all. Guess she just wanted to be a little more memorable.

//Being not of Spanish heritage I don't know if there is some other reason due to Spanish naming conventions.
///What is your middle name, please.
