In the concluding moments of the Freedom Friday program last week on WEBY radio, Zullo and Gallups stated that they were “turning off the the switch,” that is, ending all discussion of the small group of anti-birthers that they spent 38 minutes talking about on the program. They said that it was a waste of time. Here’s the exact statement:
Gallups: You are the lead investigator in this case, assigned by Sheriff Arpaio. You represent him around the nation, actually you represent him around the world. He is still engaged. You speak with him all the time. You just with him less than an hour ago. This is not going away. You are reporting directly to him. Sheriff Arpaio knows what’s going on with this investigation. …
Gallups: I agree
Zullo: They got their own [talk?] line.
Gallups: I agree. It’s a waste of your time. It’s a waste of your time.
Zullo: It is a waste. If they come through with an affidavit, and not an affidavit signed by Dr. Conspiracy, because quite frankly RC who’s the one out there saying he’s doing all this work.
Gallups: Right, right, right, right, right. Mike had to cut you off because we’re out of time.
I don’t know a lot about law enforcement, but I always thought that law enforcement not only accepted anonymous tips, but that they solicited them. Doesn’t every big police department have an anonymous “tip line?” Nevertheless, Zullo makes it clear that he cannot accept information from anybody without knowing their name, their address, and doing a background check on them. He knows my name, but he wouldn’t accept a recipe for making the long form with a Xerox machine from me because not only does he require my name, he requires that I give him the names and addresses of everybody who might have developed the information. That means Zullo won’t accept evidence from me unless I tell him RC’s real name, which I wouldn’t do, and NBC’s real name which I don’t even know.
But anyhow, it’s all over! I don’t normally listen to the Gallups show, except I felt obligated to listen this past one because it talks about me. It’s painful to hear the smears and the non sequiturs; it offends a finely-tuned logical mind like mine, not to mention my moral sense. Thank goodness I won’t have to listen to any more of that.
Oh wait, Zullo and Gallups lie. Sigh.
