BPR Quote of the Day
“The only thing that can really destroy us is us. We shouldn’t do it to ourselves, and we shouldn’t use fear for political purposes—scaring people to death so they will vote for you, or scaring people to death so that we create a terror-industrial complex.”
I haven’t watched news on TV since… well, never is probably accurate. And every year, I find more reasons not to start.
There are a few good reasons to watch TV “news” (e.g., John Stewart, Steven Colbert, Rachel Maddow) but they are far outnumbered by reasons not to (e.g. all of Fox News, the Sunday network talk shows etc). I don’t blame you a bit, X.
I watch Jon Stewart online on the Comedy Central website, which also has Colbert. And occasionally I see Maddow clips on Youtube. So I’ve pretty much got everything covered.
