In a world where FOX rules the media world, ONE MAN has the guts to stop them. But maybe he shouldn’t.

Remember, kids: all “In a world” blog titles must be read in the voice of Don Lafontaine or else you won’t get your money’s worth outta this mess.

This situation is sort of a tough call for me. It goes without saying that I hate FOX News, especially that smarmy fucking idiot Chris Wallace, who daily pisses all over his journalistic legacy.  But…….do we really want the White House going there?  I say NO! (& very forcefully too, much like John McLaughlin, at least as imagined by Dana Carvey.)  What? No?

Yes.

Oh wait I mean

NO!!!

What I mean is, we have lots of websites, all of them very active, that are solely committed to debunking stupid FOX stories, to convincing their advertisers to pull out, among other things.  I admit that it’s all essentially a fruitless endeavor (because as has been noted many times, Murdock doesn’t give a flip about the money element of it) but it’s the only appropriate venue for airing these kinds of grievances.

I sympathize with the White House because FOX really has gone out of its way to subvert the national agenda.  The Tea Party march was almost solely organized by FOX themselves (or at least by their night-time talking heads).  But that doesn’t mean Obama or Dunn have permission to start a flame-war. (If FOX ever got openly seditious, that’s another story, but one would have to have a very high standard for what would be considered seditious.)

Now, why would I, Jason, named socialist devil, poo-poo on the parade of my hero, fellow terrorist Barack Obama?  First of all, this kind of conduct fucks with the decorum of the Office.  You can call me a stick in the mud or old-fashioned if you want: to my mind, decorum is what keeps the two-party system from erupting into a literal gang-war.  Secondly, I generally hate the slippery slope argument, but this surpasses my distaste; besides, once the State takes on the media, whether it’s justified or not, you have already slid down the fucking hill.  As much as I hate FOX News, the only weapon we have against them is the superiority of our philosophy and our culture, and to my mind, we are most definitely winning the long-term battle.
