Cheney’s Book Tour, In Which He Takes Out His Heart Battery

August 29, 2011

What gets me is the ability of these people like Dick Cheney to be legitimized by the corporate media as they trot out a book.  Or, as in the case of Karl Rove, a criminal is given a platform by the News Corporation’s Fox Network, and in doing so, a natural impression is created, namely: ‘this guy can’t be really bad –he’s a regular on a program.’

My all time favorite was watching Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor being interviewed by Matt Lauer – it was soon after the Bush v Gore decision.  She was pushing her new book about her childhood.  Not once, not a single question, not even an allusion to what had just transpired was posed. 

I was making “Orwell Rolls In His Grave” at the time.
