    Hilary Rosen is nothing but an evil, evil corporate whore. More than any other single person, at the behest of Big Entertainment, she killed legal p2p in its infancy and assured that corporations would always have control over what two people shared between them on their computers. I gave up on HRC years ago when she was first brought aboard. She speaks for no one. No one good, that is.

  2. Henry Gerber says

    Second that! Rosen is also a WHORE for the Obama administration who side-by-side with Obama Piss Boy and $300k a year hack head of HRC Joe Solmonese attacked Dan Choi, Michelangelo Signorile, and Dan Savage on CNN before the National Equality March for DARING demand that Obama keep his promises.

    She accused them of not being as politically savy as she and the other Porch Faggots and Dykes for Mass Barack are, blah blah blah.

    Not to forget she’s even defended Repug Fags who work for gay hating politicians.

    And, yes, she was the coconspirator with her then paramour Elizabeth Birch in turning HRC into a worthless cashsucking hole.

    Not a surprise that she’s now whoring for no less than British Petroleum. Bravo Huffington Post.

    Good for Apple. They have to protect their products. East Asians are known for stealing. A copy of the iPad known as the iPed is already being sold in China by a Chinese company.

  4. stranded says

    There just are no words to describe the contempt I feel towards Hilary Rosen. To even consider siding with BP in this fiasco reveals a monster who’s a friend to no one. This is one political calculation that can never be forgiven.

  5. rovex says

    Bill, its the other way round. Good for Asians! Apple are known for stealing other companies IP and passing it off as ‘innovative’ and ‘revolutionary’ and then they over charge everyone for that technology that they dont pay Licensing fees for. Thats why everyone is suing them.. Apple are the scum of the industry.
