I have taken the weekend off to work on another project (that will likely never be finished, but it is nice to dream), so there hasn't been a lot of activity around here. One thing that The Barefoot Bum pointed out yesterday, though, that ought to get more coverage (and outrage) than it has is Fox News arguing successfully for the legal right to lie. Yes, freedom of speech is important, but so is consumer protection. It is not within a food manufacturer's rights for free speech to print, "Lead free!" on contaminated food, so why is it any different for a news broadcaster?
I have tended to try and laugh off my abhorrence for Fox News by, for example, looking them up on Conservapedia, but this is really hard to laugh at. The more I think about it, the more I want to let loose with a tirade of vitriolic invectives (and even coming up with fancy ways of saying I want to swear and curse can only distract me so much), so I think I'm going to have to end this post here.
