Fox News' Bill O'Reilly explains the politics of marijuana legalization. He's an expert explainer of things, you know:
"The left is basically saying, harmless, OK, which I don't agree with and I don't think you agree with. It's not a harmless substance, all right? And, you know, 'it's blacks', you know, 'you're trapping the blacks', because in certain ghetto neighborhoods it's part of the culture, 9 year old boys and girls are smoking it. And they don't like that. They don't want those kids to be targeted by the cops."
Bill O'Reilly explaining "the blacks," ghettos, the drug war and what 'the left' thinks all at the same time? Be still, my heart.

Now, I haven't heard of a new influx of pot-smoking 9-year-olds into our federal penal system, but I admit Bill O'Reilly probably gets his news from different places than I do. But now I'm wondering just how much pot you'd find if you did a sweep in the Fox News studios. It's been clear for 10 years that they're smoking something—it's only a matter of time before these newfangled high-definition cameras pick up a thin, tell-tale wisp of smoke from behind the Fox & Friends couch.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
