Here’s Montel Williams, making sense on the subject of press coverage of Heath Ledger versus coverage of troops killed in Iraq.
According to this post on daily Kos, from which I lifted this idea,
Three minutes into this awkward segment on Fox, one host cut off Montel in order to go to a commercial. Montel did not return after the break. Four days later, after 17 years as a television host, Montel lost his job.
Speaking of Fox and its hamhanded style of shaping discourse, here’s a clip on their klunky transparent fluffy of the candidacy of Rudy Giuliani. Man, this is Soviet-style propaganda, about as subtle as a freight train. Maybe if they had been a little less strident they would have been more successful.
Or maybe Rudy’s just such an asshole that not even Republican voters would fall for his schtick.
