I'm amazed that most of this made it through the editing process. That last bit is almost unbelievable.
Are you (read: we) watching it? Then why would they have thought for a second to edit it out

Five big ones for two brassy old whores discussing and rating their old tricks.

What does that MEAN? Is he calling him a Judas?

Old media and new media collide, but Koppel is correct that the stakes are much higher than that.

Every time Fox gets called on its bullshit, its defenders (from Bill right on down to angry teabaggers in bars) fall back on the "BUT IT GETS RATINGS!" argument.
As Ted points out, the fact that they equate ratings with good journalism means they have no idea what journalism even is.
I do have a problem with the two competing claims:
The right view point is attacked and under-represented in the media
WE ARE AWESOME!!! WE CRUSH YOU IN THE RATINGS!!! No one watches the left-wing lamestream media.
Which is it? Tragically misunderstood underdog fighting for the common man, or ratings giant smiting all who stand in the way?

I thought this was going to fill me with shame/rage/despair/embarrassment the way most Fox News clips do.
This was wonderful. I loved everything about it.

The fight for the last "word" here is glorious. It was destined to end as it did or at worse, with them in an amorous entanglement to knock each other out of their chairs.

Was that a kiss blown at the end?
When the Inquisitor ceased speaking he waited some time for his Prisoner to answer him. His silence weighed down upon him. He saw that the Prisoner had listened intently all the time, looking gently in his face and evidently not wishing to reply. The old man longed for him to say something, however bitter and terrible. But He suddenly approached the old man in silence and softly kissed him on his bloodless aged lips. That was all his answer. The old man shuddered. His lips moved. He went to the door, opened it, and said to Him: 'Go, and come no more... come not at all, never, never!' And he let Him out into the dark alleys of the town. The Prisoner went away."
"And the old man?"
"The kiss glows in his heart, but the old man adheres to his idea."
Stop posting your "Prisoner" slash fanfic.
... I just looked up the credits for the 1958 movie. Holy shit, It starred Captain Kirk, Digger Smolken, Chief Wild Eagle, and King Mongkut of Siam.

OH MAN. WONDERFUL.

The only thing better would have been if Koppel followed it up with a Throat Cut gesture.

"You can't be on top as long as Fox News has been on top, and sell a product that is inferior or dishonest. It's impossible."
Well, you know what H.L. Mencken said: "You'll always go broke eventually underestimating the American Public"
