Caminante Nocturno - 2007-11-19

I don't think the news media was ever that dignified to begin with.

Roachbud - 2007-11-19

Walter Cronkite, Edward Murrow, Sy Hersh

Roachbud: Even those guys covered non-stories and fluff interviews in their time.

There was a brilliant Colbert bit right after this too. Either Comedy Central needs to lengthen the clips, or we need multi-parts for these.

Roachbud - 2007-11-19

Sy Hersh's first big break was the My Lai Massacre and all he's been doing since then is breaking military stories, he outed the Bush Administration's push to Iran. Cronkite was a news anchor, so he read what his producers pushed to him, but that was before TV got stupid. Murrow brought down McCarthy.

What I am seeing here is exceptions to the rule.

Roachbud - 2007-11-19

What your seeing is two broadcast journalists who were in the business before corporations decided to treat their news divisions like any others, squeezing all the profit out of them they could. People like stories on Britney and Brangelina more than depressing stories about Iraq or global warming. And a print journalist who writes for arguably the best magazine on the planet, the New Yorker. Print divides out the stupid, there's People and then there's the Economist.

Sorry guys, but I have to do it:


Roachbud - 2007-11-20

I don't read the Economist, I have subscriptions to the New Yorker and Harpers, because I am a commie-liberal and I tend to think with the left side of my brain a little more.

healthy people use both sides in parallel to think, roachbud

Fuck Puritanism, in Bilbao, Spain they show porn on the public access channel on Saturday night

EvilHomer - 2007-11-19

Conservative monarchy by way of fascist dictatorship, but hey! Small price to pay for the freedom to spend your Saturday night watching public access porn, right?

Billy Buttsex - 2007-11-19

Puritanism kicks ass! Listen, these protesters aren't Puritans, they're idiots. The fact that they pointed this out instead of the myriad of other degrading and harmful portrayals of women suggest we've regressed into a society that cares about trivialities instead of meaningful and offensive concepts.

Puritanism: good. Idiots: bad.

Roachbud - 2007-11-19

EvilHomer, Spain's king is a figurehead and the current government is run by the Socialist Party, plus Bilbao and the rest of the north is as left-leaning as anywhere.

bongoprophet - 2007-11-19

wait, what... Puritanism is good? surely you jest!

Roachbud - 2007-11-19

Buttsex, talking about degrading to women, Puritans were the ones who put scarlet letters on their chests for doing what comes naturally. The good Puritan women spent her time in the kitchen and in prayer. Puritans committed genocide against the Irish in the old world and the Indians in the New World. Fuck them.

EvilHomer - 2007-11-19

Yes, because the fact that you measure a country's worth by how easy it is to find porn on public access TV is a clear indication of how concerned you are when it comes to the degredation of women. "A woman's place isn't in the kitchen! It's with three other women, rubbing chocolate on each other's tits, on my TV!"

Also, you do know that Spain's only had a "Socialist" president for a few years now, right? And that the country is still predominately Catholic and conservative?

Roachbud - 2007-11-20

You do know that it took Franco three years and a bloody civil war to take over Spain from Socialists? You do know that the Socialists ran shit before the Partido Popular did too?

As for the porn thing, I was just saying that they aren't fucking prudes like we are here. Sex is natural, but this society gets its knickers in a bunch whenever it's in public. Jesus had more to say than keep your legs crossed and your dick in your pants.

I never said I was concerned with degrading women. I laugh when I see one taking a shit in a cup then her and another one licking it and sucking on it, spitting the brown goop out and rubbing that sweet chocolate on each other's titis.
