Still blaring out after all these years.

There are days when it is best to not watch any cable news.  For me personally, those are the days of the week that end in "Y".  But without even watching them I know that the big "important" discussion of yesterday can be summarized thusly:
Mitt Romney decries Barack Obama for never having run a business while also saying his source for how voters feel about the economy is his wife, who has never run a business.  How dare a Democrat point out this glaring inconsistency!  Clearly liberals are decrying the model of motherhood we hold sacrosanct but which our economic policies have made impossible...unless you are rich, like Mitt and Ann Romney.  Harrumph, Harrumph.
Thanks right-wing Wurlitzer, for keeping us focused on the unimportant stuff.  Good job cable news.
Hey, speaking of cable news...
On Thursday, attorneys at Epstein Becker & Green P.C. sent Gawker publisher Nick Denton a letter urging his blog to “immediately stop publishing information and videos that have been unlawfully obtained by or from Joe Muto, and return them to Fox News.”
But that’s not all. The letter also urges Gawker to protect all evidence and material Muto gave Gawker. The letter claims that Gawker and Muto — a now-former associate producer at Fox News, who until Wednesday night remained anonymous — likely engaged in “criminal and civil wrongdoing,” which will be the subject of further investigation by Fox.
Which naturally led to this accurate tweet:

From the tone of that letter, Roger Ailes must think he's a shadow assistant secretary of defense.

Of course, I can see how he might think that, since Fox News spent eight years being Little Boots' official propaganda agency.
