Big Talker host Curtis Wright apologizes for actions, lawsuit over

The libel lawsuit filed by the state Republican Party chair against a Wilmington radio host is over. Tom Fetzer sued Big Talker FM host Curtis Wright in June after taking exception with an e-mail Wright sent to county Republican chairs. The e-mail included a letter by an anonymous author that claimed Fetzer is gay. Late last week Fetzer released a letter from Wright clarifying why Wright sent the original e-mail and apologizing to Fetzer for "any distress" Wright's actions may have caused. But the controversy may not be over. In an e-mail over the weekend to WWAY, and other media outlets, Wright claimed Fetzer violated the settlement Wright told WWAY Monday morning Fetzer was not supposed to say anything more than the agreed upon statement or release the letter. In fact, Wright said his lawyer is checking to see if the letter Fetzer released is the draft Wright agreed to. Wright also said in the settlement he admits no wrong doing.

Why did Fetzer sue?

In this day and age, a man still feels libeled when called gay? Please! This is antidiluvian thinking on their part. From my own experience, I have found gay (deplore the trivial label) men, as a whole, to be more intelligent, more creative, and more talented than the average straight man. Fetzer should have ignored the name-calling; instead, he reacts like the typical reactionery right-winger that he and Curtis Wright are and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.

I don't know about you pal,

I don't know about you pal, but I don't see being called gay as a compliment. Call me an idiot if you want, but I'm not the one who is confused about what I am.

With Wright everything is wrong!

Wright, save us from your whinny rants! Go back to California where you belong!!!

What else is new, actually

What a twist. Usually Republicans use this gay tactic on others, but now they have used the name-calling on each other! The Republican meltdown continues, even on the local level. Nice to see it.


Yes, THE BIG MELTDOWN! Where two men have a disagreement, (that just so happens to be in the same party) and sends the Republican party down in ashes! Wow, how will conservatives ever recuperate from this one? Forgive my sarcasm. Your line of thinking does more a disservice to your party and really brings some liberals twisted logic to light. Nice to see it.


YOUR kidding right...there isn't a Republican meltdown...your just projecting....or your just a racist...
