  •  Sorry, not impressed with O'Reilly's contrition (3+ / 0-)

    yet another liberal, djbender, Matt Z

    When the son of a bitch puts his mea culpa as his lead item and repeats it every night for a week like he consistently finds some specious reason to hate us, then I can say the man has turned over a new fig leaf.

    But until then, his contrition means nothing. Perpetuating the "Kos is a hate site" (as a subset of the larger "all liberals are hateful") meme makes him money; but "I'm Billo Rile E and I screwed up" doesn't boost his ratings and therefore isn't on his to-do list.

    I don't mean to diminish the legitimacy of an actual "I screwed up" that you nailed him on, but only point out that until the Bilious O'Rile Me ceases to earn his money as a wretched lying bastard with no conscience, no spine, and no clue, my day is still uncomfortable.

    George Orwell is banging on his coffin lid and screaming, "1984 was a cautionary tale, you dolts, not a motivational speech!"
