  •  I happened to catch a bit of Fox the other night (9+ / 0-)

    when I was working out at the gym.  It was playing (thankfully silently) on one of the pre-set TVs.  Normally I never watch it (and almost never watch TV at all)...so it took a moment to readjust to the nonsense they were saying, in their full post-election meltdown phase.

    I realized that a lot of the crap I hear spewed at work mimicks the crap that is spewed on Fox.  I think the fact that Fox broadcasts this blatant racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, and downright conspiracy crap 24/7 makes other people think it's ok to say those things in public.

    It's not.

    Thank you for this diary, for your gracious response to such filth, for your public comment on your website, and for being willing to throw light in such unpleasant corners.

      you considered "arming" yourself with a TV-B-Gone so you can shut the damn things off?  They even published instructions for building your own if you are good with a soldering iron.

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
