"Presidents have been assassinated. So why is that so far-fetched?" To hearty applause from the Los Angeles audience, Lee asked: "Do you think that election in 2000 was fair? You don't think that was rigged?" Lee argued: If they can rig an election, they can do anything!"
ABC reporter Michel Martin dismissed this theory, but added, "Anybody with any knowledge of history can understand why a lot of people can feel this way, that that's a reasonable theory." So who is the knucklehead? HBO, which is part of the Time-Warner-AOL-Turner consortium. But it also has CNN, the least trusted name in TV news, so there you are.

Unless Michel Martin is fired for not knowing the difference between "plausible" and "reasonable", the award goes to Disney Corp., which owns ABC. Spike Lee, Bill Maher, and Time-Warner-ANL-HBO-Turner would have to settle for lesser knucklehead status.ReplyDelete
