So if you are able, if you are so inclined, please donate. Paddy, Lucian, and I have expenses up to our collective chins and can't do this without your help.
Thank you ahead of time for your consistent kindness and generosity. Without you, there would be no us.
I accidentally sat thru Mark Burnett & Roma Downey oozing righteousness about this yesterday on Sunday Morning. Guess we know how they vote. Everyone commenting on this is quick to compare it to the "head" of GWB showing up in a "Game of Thrones" episode which was quickly removed from the re-airing of the show. Think they're going to change the devil if we make enough of a scene? Yeah, me neither. Via.
I checked into the story about the Nightline reporter, Dave Marash. Here is what he said about "bias"
Marash garnered considerable attention when he joined Al Jazeera English in January 2006 as the network's Washington, D.C. anchor, thus becoming the de facto American face of the new English-language station. Two years later, in March 2008, he stepped down from his position. Marash explained, "To put it bluntly, the channel that's on now — while excellent, and I plan to be a lifetime viewer — is not the channel that I signed up to do." Specifically, he cited the loss of editorial control and his inability to vouch for content that the network was broadcasting, as reasons for his departure.
On February 14, 2011 however, Dave Marash defended Al Jazeera English on the O'Reilly Factor on Fox News against claims by Bill O'Reilly that Al Jazeera was anti-American.

Idiots. I wonder how Megyn Kelly and company would react if they actually learned that Al Jazeera is already available in DC over the air (no cable required) and on every cable provider...
Ah, here we go.
