Wow, that felt good. Okay, not really. Stating the obvious doesn’t make one wise. Not even in today’s U.S., where layer upon layer of historical and political self-deception often relegates the obvious to the pejorative category of “conspiracy theory.”

Anyway, it bears mentioning that one of the largest media conglomerates in our fair land sees fit to pay someone millions of dollars a year to make statements like the following:


Still, you have to admire even the most audacious of bullies for standing behind his own idiotic words. Well, maybe not. Is it actually admirable when he doesn’t have to face any consequences for his hateful and belligerent speech? Alas, it makes little difference. O’Reilly and his bosses at Fox News are successful at what they do because millions of people happily sit and gobble up their ignorant, mean-spirited bullshit. I suppose that’s what you can expect in a market-driven representative democracy founded by slaveholders and Indian-butchers.

    The big splotchy one needs to go down like the $10 whore he really is. Unfortunately, unlike real journalists, O’Lielly isn’t held to any standards, so as long as he pulls the mouthbreathers in with his ranting and raving, he’ll have a show.

    I guess this is the time of the unenlightened.

  3. Yes, Cynthia. The unenlightened and the shamelessly distracted.Teh: It’s hard to fault O’Reilly without heaping a bit of scorn on useless airwave-wasting whores like Larry King and all the corporate minstrels of the network morning ‘news’ shows. Thusly the scorn do I so heap. Or somethin’ like dat.
