Liar liar, pants on fire.

FEBRUARY 12, 2015
I'm really conflicted about the Brian Williams scandal. I've always liked the guy I see on TV. I think his sense of humor (and what I've blithely assumed are his political leanings) has somehow mitigated my outrage. It illuminates a media prejudice that I'm a little embarrassed to cop to. Pretty sure I wouldn't feel the same wincing hesitancy and regret about pitching this sketch were it about Bill fucking O'Reilly (not the fairest comparison, I know, but..). The New Yorker, on the other hand, betrayed no such hesitancy in summarily shooting this here copter down.
