America would do better if it stopped watching TV.

Amusingly enough, TV would probably also do better if America stopped watching TV.

I once thought about making a cable channel where you get to watch a glass of water evaporate in real time with trance techno in the background 24/7.

So where's that big rant I've been promised? You need to post more!

I'm sorry, but Larry is wasting his time, although I'm sure he's laughing all the way to the bank. We all know Bill's a liar. Bill knows he's a liar, he just won't ever admit it in public. You could present indisputable evidence to O'Reilly of his lies, and he would look you right in the face and tell you that you're an idiot. He doesn't care what you say or think about him, he just wants his name out there so he can sell more books, commercials, etc. He's probably pleased as punch that you've got his name plastered all over your web site. And if you think he's bad now, just wait until after Kerry wins the election...

"he's convinced himself that his extreme right-view viewpoints are both mainstream and objective"

Absolutely not, he doesnt hide his views, and he's trying to make them mainstream, but on issues and interviews regarding elections, he is fair and balanced. Remember, Fox, Bill and Rush would have higher ratings and more money under a democrat president.

All media people have views, I think its better they let them known. New York Times has views, pro-this anti-that, but they claim to be neutral. Is that fair and balanced?

I'm glad i read your post more carefully. I thouht you were saying that Lessig directed 'Outfoxed,' but that was Robert Greenwald. Apparently, you were just mentioning his work with the film. No chastising required.

Indeed. Lessig did not create Outfoxed. The director is Robert Greenwald. Lessig has, I believe, been supporting the movie, providing legal advice.

Oh, thanks to Aaron (, I've now seen Outfoxed. It has a few damning facts (That is, The Memos, some compelling arguments, and a healthy chunk of suggestions of evil. THe technical work is a bit over done, but harmless. An interesting movie, but not extremely convincing. It fails to paint Fox News Channel as being as corrupt as they claim, but simply as deeply flawed. Lessig's upbraiding of O'Reilly is a more convincing argument than the movie he is defending makes.
