I saw that tonight on the news and almost :Puke I can't believe that guy!!! I emailed him the following:

Dear Mr. Schram,
I am appalled by your commentary about the 'nurse-in' that took place in New York. I cannot believe that you are comparing feeding a child to peeing in a glass jar. I am a breastfeeding mother, yes I feed my daughter in public, yes MOST of the time I am discreet. I frankly don't think it matters if women are discreet about it or not. Please explain to me why it is ok for half naked women in Victoria's Secret ads to be on TV, but you think that a mother feeding her baby is wrong?? I think your commentary does a great disservice to women and babies, as you are being extremely negative about breastfeeding. Many people in our country are still learning to be accepting of breastfeeding and moronic comments like yours are not helpful. Most people I know are NOT offended by seeing me feed my daughter. How dare you criticize what is best for my child?!?!

Sincerely,
Rebecca S.

His e-mail is at the end of the piece asking for comments. Any takers? Perhaps someone should point out that it was NOT just BW's comments, but Star's continued reference to breastfeeding as 'gross' and the celebration of formula that lead to the nurse-in.

I am sure it does,but i don't care, obviously these people aren't going to change thier minds, so i am going to let them know just how I feel, they don't seem to care how we feel and i don't care how they feel. Sorry i know many of you don't agree. I see us running into a dead end with people like this.

WATCH the Jimmy Kimmel show on ABC tonight!

About 10 minutes into the show, he talks about the nurse in. . he plays the tape of what Barbara said on the 18th.
He plays the tape of what she said today on the view.
Then he says, what a minute.... and he goes back and plays the tape from the 18th again.

She is clearly saying that "she" was uncomfortable, and the man beside her was HER publicist (not some stranger).

On "the view" Tuesday, she is clearly heard saying that "he" was uncomfortable.

He is clearly implying, and showing, that she was lying today.

Please someone on the west coast, tape this.

Distribute this widely!

I have satelitte TV, so now I will have to stay up until 1 am here, to watch it on the Spokane channel
(My husband just watched it - he is at his sister's house tonight, he had to phone me right away to tell me!)

Darn it! I even had the Jimmy Kimmel Show on, but my DD woke up and needed nursed back to sleep. That is just awesome, though! Wherever Barbara is, I hope she knows she is B-U-S-T-E-D.

It's like a soap opera, isn't it? Except, even with 150 nursing mamas, you still probably see less breast than in a soap opera. :LOL

I unfortunately will not be able to watch what those ladies will have to say on THE VIEW tomorrow and I don't own a VCR.
Where can I get transcripts? Could any of you summarize what will be said tomorrow and post here? Or PM me?

PLEEEASE! :

That's the $1,000,000 question. If we could easily obtain transcripts, proving what everyone said would be a heck of a lot easier!

Well, I guessed that :LOL I am still baffled though at how stupid Barbara is for having the guts to lie so openly when what she said earlier has been recorded!!! Ok... maybe she thinks WE are stupid. A big bunch of "hormonal" ladies (to quote Rosie's pearl)
Seriously now - I was hoping for some unoficial transcripts. Anyone??

Keith Oberman also showed the original clip of her talking about being uncomfortable on his show on MSNBC (there is a thread about it).

I wish I had seen the Jimmy Kimmel clip....if anyone taped it, I would *LOVE* a copy!!

who is going to help me stay awake for 2 more hours - to watch the Jimmy Kimmel show???

I guess I will work on something. I have a talk radio interview tomorrow at 10, I wanted to get a good sleep.

Thanks for the thanks. This has been quite an amazing ride. I'm getting tired of working at a "New York" pace. I want to go back to "Saskatchewan time". And this being in the middle of the continent, means I can pretty much work all day on something.....

Just watched Jimmy Kimmel (Central time, US) and the Baba part is at the end of his monologue. He does play the tape where BW says that she and her male hairdresser were on a flight (she had window, coiffure dude in the middle) and a woman sat next to them breastfeeding "without a blanket or anything! It made us uncomfortable."

Then he plays the phone-in clip from today where BW says that "it made *him* uncomfortable, as it does make some men uncomfortable." Then the show goes back to replay where she said it made *us* uncomfortable. Then Jimmy said, "So she's a misogynist and a liar!"

:LOL Go Jimmy!

This is soo awsome , powerful and inspiring. I have spent almost an hour reading all of your posts.

I don't really remember how long ago I came here and read some of the first posts. Today I happened to watch the view which I never do and felt so proud of being part of tis discussion board.

That Rosie is going coo-coo like she will say. She's definitely selfish. I can't wait for tomorrow and hear and see what Babs has to say It will be interesting because the part that struck me about her comments today was how much the nurse in made her feel bad Buhh huu

Love to you all

I'm watching the Kimmel show on the computer right now so I can record it to a computer video format if anyone wants it.... I dont have a website big enough to put it on if it gets a lot of traffic, but can give it to anyone who wants it, LOL.

I saw the original offending show and was so ticked when Barbara made those statements today saying she never said it bothers her personally because she had....it is what was so offending.....it is why so many of us got so ticked (among other things)
I jusdt saw Jimmy Kimmel.....and I am now a fan. Sooooo cool to see it put up there and shown what a liar she has been about this incident.
I am curious what she says tomorrow...does she think we are idiots, does she think we have no tivo and vcr's???
If she had simply said she had said it and was sorry I might have some respect. Take responsibility for goddesses sake.

I do apolagize for my moment of weakness with the letter i wrote to that Ken guy, I just feel like some people are just not open minded and they will never change their opinon about BF. I tend to let my frustration act before i think things through with issues like this. Anyway this grumpy BFing mama needs her sleep! See you all in the morning!

BUSTed? Is the pun intended? :LOL

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50
