I can't wait to see how the next few years play out.
Is this country really heading towards a media that has completely lost interest in reporting in exchange for attacking the reputation of other media outlets, their business competitors?
After WWI, Churchill definitely wanted to use poison gas on the Kurds, "Saddam-Hussein style", even though they were no threat to London. Yes, he made noises about doing it in non-lethal fashion, but as anyone familiar with trench warfare knew (and Churchill had to know), the stuff was designed to be deadly, and if you managed to get less than a lethal dose you could look forward to being fucked up for life.
So O'Reilly isn't completely wrong on this one, he just got the country wrong, and he is trying to draw the wrong lesson from it. (The correct lesson is "Churchill was a good servant of his empire, which sometimes meant being a monster to the wogs".)
If O'Reilly is talking, he's lying. He's evil scum.
Olbermann may be unashamedly partisan, but he's intelligent and learned and that's enough for me.
This is the side of Olbermann that I like; he's justifiably furious and he's on target. This is the right amount of froth and alarm.
It's when I see him being easily twice as animated and hyperactive over the Carrie Prejean "scandal" that I want to punch him in the face.
