It looks like Fake Miss Oklahoma isn’t the only Oklahoman playing make-believe on Fox News. Tate Publishing CEO Ryan Tate appeared on the network twice this month under the guise of a “financial expert” to talk about how rising healthcare costs are hurting his family’s business.
Yep, you read that right. The nepotism product who’s best known for praying with, bullying and then firing 25 employees in a secretly recorded staff meeting is the same guy Fox News chose to be an ambassador for disgruntled right-wing small business owners across the country. Isn’t that awesome!?
So far, Ryan has appeared on two shows. On each of them, he’s blamed the health insurance price hikes on his stupid, lazy, moronic employees who voted for Barack Obama in the 2012 election. He claimed to know who those employees were, and as a result of their idiotic actions, Tate Publishing would have to fire people at its Mustang offices and out-source 50 more local jobs to the Philippines.
It’s very “dramastic.” Here are a couple of clips:
Okay, I lied. Ryan didn’t say any of those of things. Well, he did drop a “dramastic” in the first clip at around the 1:10 mark, but other than that, my description of his comments was satirical. Take that Tate Publishing Attorneys. Now you can’t sue me for libel. However, you can still probably sue Fox News.
Once again, look at what they called his royal douchieness:
Yeah, Ryan Tate is a financial expert….if you consider being a product of nepotism and damaging your company’s reputation for eternity as being shrewd financial moves. Even Fake Miss Oklahoma thinks that’s embellishing things too far. I doubt Ryan knows how to balance a checkbook or open Quicken. I wouldn’t trust Ryan Tate to follow the green Fidelity line. He probably thinks the E-Trade baby is still funny and/or dramastic.
Seriously, what a joke. Back in 2012, we published 10 Things We Know About Ryan Tate. Trust me, “Financial Expert” was not one of them. This was:
1. Ryan Tate is a product of nepotism.
It’s quite obvious that the only reason Ryan Tate has his job is because his parents gave it to him. I’ve done several Google searches and can’t find any mentions of a college degree or past successes as a writer, salesman or publisher. From what I can tell, it appears the only qualification Ryan has is his last name.
Have a made a point here? Ryan would be nowhere in life it wasn’t for his last name. Any other respectful company would have fired his ass for the bullying and other crap he’s pulled as CEO of Tate Publishing, yet Fox News trots him out as some business leader. IIf that doesn’t say everything you need to know about Fox News, what does?
