TV News Critic: We're Silent On Steve Centanni's Life or Death Peril Because We Don't Like Fox

Yes, goddamnit, he said that. Or words quite similar to that.

Fox has deliberately set itself apart from other news media. Starting at the top with Roger Ailes, the Fox sales pitch has been to deride other media, to declare itself the one source of the real truth, the sole source of 'fair and accurate' news reporting. As a result, there's not a reservoir of kinship or good will with Fox on the part of the rest of the news media. You can't keep insulting people and then expect friendship when you need it.

They've made it a policy to keep a distance between themselves and the rest of the media, far beyond the usual competitive spirit, so that's where they are: at a distance.

They're not asking for "friendship," you vicious, vile asshole. They're asking for a modicum of concern for two human beings' lives.

We'll even take feigned concern at this point.

There is no distinction anymore between the MSM and Democratic Underground. DU openly prays for Steve Centanni's beheading; the MSM simply says the same thing in slightly more "nuanced" language.

Michelle wants a blogburst for Steve Centanni and cameraman Olaf Wiig.
