I have always enjoyed the creativity and comedy of Sarah Silverman, but now I have even more reason to like her.
See the link here for the full read.
Sarah pretty much comes out and states the obvious to most of us, but I am still glad she said the following about the entire Faux News operation:
"The entire Fox News Channel is a 24-hour-a-day racism engine, but it's all coded, all implied," she wrote (via NewsBusters). "Lou Dobbs used to scream on CNN about 'immigration,' not 'filthy Mexicans.'"
Of course Faux News doesn't refute the accuracy of what she has to say only that Ms. Silverman is bitter about the recent canceling of her own show on Comedy Central. This is Faux News response:
"Sarah's anger is understandable having recently lost her television show," a Fox News spokesperson said in response. "We sympathize with her need for attention considering her book is languishing near 300 on Amazon.com."
Actually, not wanting to take any "fact" from the Fox News Machine at their word. I checked where her book was currently ranked by Amazon and by other organizations.
Bookcourt has Bedwetter currently ranked 3rd on their list from the period May 24 - May 31.
On the NY Times list she is currently at #35.
Also, the book was released on April 20th, and was #7 as of May 6th, #12 of of May 13th, and #24 as of May 28th. So, after more than a month after release her book is still at #35 on the NY Times best seller list. Seems pretty impressive to me.
Oh, in regard to that Amazon ranking, I guess the people at Faux News have a tendency to round up whenever it suits them. Her book is ranked #260 against all books. In Amazon's Memoirs category it is ranked #28, in Essays it is ranked #7, and in the Entertainers category it is ranked #16.
Say what you will about Faux News, they never let facts get in the way of a story. Also, in terms of her career I think Sarah will be just fine. Based on IMDB.com she currently has two projects under development.
Keep up the good work Sarah!
