Brenda Benet[edit]

There is no reference to this matter: "In her book The Death of Right and Wrong, talk radio host Tammy Bruce writes of her personal involvement with Bixby and Benet. Benet and Bruce were romantically involved for a time, and Benet killed herself in a home she had previously shared with Bruce. Bruce had moved out two weeks prior to the suicide. On the day of Benet's suicide, Bruce thought that she would be meeting Benet for lunch. Benet waited until she heard Bruce leave before pulling the trigger and ending her life. The book Soap Opera Babylon said that Benet was actually involved with a male costar on Days of our Lives that ended right before she killed herself."

Is the Bruce Article being scrubbed? - if so, there should be a dispute of content flag.--4rousseau (talk) 21:39, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

I don't know about the "scrubbed" business, but has this "material" been covered by reliable 3rd party sources? If citations can be provided here, that would help determine what should go in the article and how it is written. I personally know zippo about this "incident", just commenting more from an editing perspective. --Tom (talk) 13:41, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Personal life section[edit]

She graduated from college. That's it? Seems a little thin? Anybody want to improve this section, ie family background, childhood, ect, ect to balance out the career section? If so, that new section could go before career. Anyways --Tom (talk) 13:15, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

Obama comments[edit]

I have removed this "material" for now since it seems problematic on a few fronts. Can we at least give this some time to put this into some perspective and see what develops? Wikipedia is not the news that adds a report of whatever somebody says to their bio the next day. Thank you, --Tom (talk) 18:19, 25 March 2009 (UTC)

You wanted sources. The LA Times, the WSJ, the Huffington Post. Those are all RS. How many more? What is your next objection? Again, why are you hounding me?Jimintheatl (talk) 02:17, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
My object is that this appears as undue weight and recentism. Just becasue something is sourced doesn't mean we include it. Anyways, Tom (talk) 03:23, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
I also removed it. For one thing we can not report every remark every radio talk show host makes. I also raised some other issues in my edit summary. If these remarks affect her career or something then they should be reported here. Borock (talk) 16:08, 3 April 2009 (UTC)

Liberal Bias[edit]

Of course she's Libertarian and it's really sad that the typical "liberal" anti-anything-not-Democrat results is back handed insults about how any opinion not in lock step with their opinion is radical right wing. This page announces it's obvious bias almost immediately by double quoting "progressive feminist" as though she doesn't have the right to declare herself as such. There's a rapidly aging aphorism that's at work here, with all due deference to Jeff Foxworthy: if you think "liberal" and "progressive" mean the same thing you might be a liberal.

First Name[edit]

Is her first name really Tammy, or is it short for Tamara (or maybe something else)? Stonemason89 (talk) 16:01, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
