The Bitter Old Bigot Caucus Still Going Strong

Business as usual.
The Bitter Old Bigot Caucus Still Going Strong

This week in "No One Noticed" news, Bill O'Reilly is quite correct:

He's right; in pursuit of the kind of viewer who thinks Bill O'Reilly is a genius, MSNBC executives have insulted its core audience so relentlessly and debased its currency so thoroughly, why should anyone care about them whacking their midday lineup and replacing it with Moar Shuck Todd?

You know what else no one cares about?

The fact that, while Brian Williams had to eat a humiliating public suspension and take a demotion for making shit up, the scandal of the serial lies of Bill O'Reilly has now completely vanished down the memory hole and Mr. O'Reilly's career continues to roll merrily along, unperturbed.

The fact that Nobel-prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist, Paul Krugman, penned yet another devastating vivisection of the Cult of Centrism which has killed out politics, and which disappeared down the memory hole within a few hours of being published.

The fact that New York Times columnist and America's leading Conservative public intellectual and Moral Scold, David Brooks, absolutely shit the bed in print just two weeks ago. Since then, all the Very Serious People who idolize Mr. Brooks and all that he stands for have very conspicuously avoided mentioning the incident or asking him a single question about it. And so, down the memory hole it goes as well.

To understand how completely our media and our politics are being wrecked and by whom, one need only draw a map using these four "disappeared" stories as cardinal points.
