Whatcha doing tonight? Spending quality time with the family, you say? Ha! I knew you weren’t doing anything important. You have no excuse not to watch this ProPublica/60 Minutes report on the U.S.-funded Alhurra television network, which spews anti-American propaganda in the Middle East, with a dash of Holocaust denial to add flava. If you can’t get to the TV, you can read the story here. (Remember, ProPublica is Mr. B’s project.)
Speaking of 60 Minutes, I recently saw a Family Guy episode where Death is sitting in an easy chair, reading a newspaper, as retired 60 Minutes dude Mike Wallace types at a desk. When Mike Wallace stops typing, Death looks up from his paper expectantly. Wallace resumes typing and Death goes back to the paper. I thought this was screamingly funny, but then I thought, “How would Mike Wallace feel if he saw this?!” Then I laughed even harder. I know! I’m going to hell. See you there. Mike Wallace will probably live to be 190 and bury us all.
UPDATED AGAIN TO ADD: Oh, look who is late to the party! The Washington Post has the story a day after the 60 Minutes/Propublica broadcast. I’m not going to bother to link to it.
