This was a sign at the Barnum Circus freakshow.
Printed like all the other signs, most patrons, unaware that "egress" is a word for exit, found themselves outside the tent.
This is what I was referring to.
This kind of trickery is pandemic in our national discourse.
Do a speck of research into PR. Learn some of the tricks they use.
Then come back and make clever comments.
Then they'll be clever, instead of silly.
And as a counterpoint: I was watching MSNBC last night to see how they were confronting the "Schumer" "extreme" incident.
They glossed over it like I expected them to.
Then I saw Maddow rip into Obama over deep water drilling permits. That the blow out preventers don't work. And that there is no evidence that anything has been done to prevent another Deepwater Horizon incident.
Second, Ed Schultz got into a shouting match with Jeremy Scahill(sic?) over our involvement in Libya. Schultz supporting, Scahill opposing, using the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan as an example.
I watch a lot of Fox "News". I have never seen that station take radically opposing positions on anything that might shed a negative light on Republicans. And they never went after Bush as hard as Maddow was going after Obama last night.
Yes, MSNBC is biased. But they will and do "say bad things about another Democrat", as Reagan stated was a bad practice.
Because winning is everything.
I find it amusing that people defend a cable news outlet more vociferously than many sports fans defend their teams.
Everyone knows politicians lie. Except when they're on Fox, right?
