Your remarks about media's relationship to liberalism makes it seem like the media is a kind of Nessus Shirt for liberalism; they think it makes them invulnerable, but the shirt itself is toxic.ALSO IN THE COMMENTS: Saint Croix said:
I could never call up NPR because then I would have to do the NPR voice.
Maybe they're all medicated?
I don't know who's worse, the screaming crazy madman liberals, or the NPR voice. The NPR voice is definitely spookier.
"We are in control. Everything is fine. Listen to my voice. There is no need for excitement. Remain calm."
The NPR voice often reminds me of HAL from 2001.
"Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this. I honestly think you ought to sit down calmly, take a stress pill, and think things over."
This is like NPR, right after they fired Juan Williams:
"I know I've made some very poor decisions recently, but I can give you my complete assurance that my work will be back to normal. I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission. And I want to help you."
