this website is also owned by fox news, in collusion with halliburton
this article from the new york post about the we're lying ignorant bastards (wlib) radio station is interesting, (which i also found at ace hq) but i really liked the very last, completely unrelated line:

Fox News Channel is owned by News Corp., which also owns The Post.

earlier in the article, the author had cited an interview bill o'reilly had done that franken had taken issue with. it was a passing referance, i actually had to re-read the story to figure out what fox news had to do with any of it.

the interesting correlation here, for me, is from when when sixty minutes ran infomercials for dick clark's book, presenting them as hard news. they never mention that sixty minutes is owned by the same company that publishes the books, and unless you listen to right-wing radio or read conservative websites you never would have even known about this little piece of journalistic incest.

it's not a huge deal, just good to know that somebody out there has the integrity to publicly disclose stuff like that, even with relatively minor referances such as this one.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
