"Charity is commendable, everyone should be charitable. But Justice aims to create a social order in which, if individuals choose not to be charitable, people still don't go hungry, unschooled or sick without care. Charity depends on the vicissitudes of whim and personal wealth, justice depends on commitment instead of circumstance.
Faith-based charity provides crumbs from the table; faith-based justice offers a place at the table"
~Bill Moyers

I present to you the class of 2009... By Karl Frisch

I saw this post and I knew I had to publish it on my blog too.

The ignorance, misinformation, desinformation, et al or the Shock Jocks in Right Wing Media is so out of hand that when I just consider the harm it causes, my head goes reeling and I get a feeling of sadness at witnessing people selling their souls, willing to lie ad infinitum et ad nauseam.

I believe in Free Speech but, the people who are privileged to have a microphone which reaches millions of listeners / viewers, should be held accountable when they abuse it, furthermore, the outlets which hire these Shock Jocks, should answer by having their broadcast licenses not renewed or canceled for failing to live up to the conditions under which these were issued, specifically, one of the clauses is that they provide a public service, lying, misinforming, defaming, attacking members of that public, fosters a climate of intolerance, ignorance and hate, it doesn't affect the population in a positive manner, quite the contrary.

I present to you the class of 2009...

The path here was long. Some said it would never end.

You lost your integrity. You lost your senses. But you did it with gusto!

You lied. You misled. You twisted the truth beyond recognition.

Together, you may not have learned much, but you certainly sounded convincing to the unsuspecting ear. And that's what really matters, right?

History, science, economics, pre-med, pre-law... the degrees you have earned may mean nothing in real life but in the cable news business, well, it's solid gold (and if you need the money, G. Gordon Liddy will gladly sell it for you at 2 a.m. on basic cable for a modest commission.)



Fellow wingnuts.

I present to you, the Conservative Misinformation University class of 2009!
