“We continue to pretend that video games are not desensitizing the troops (mostly kids) to such killing "fun." Each year, the blithe indifference to human life seems more and more prevalent. But then, many of these same kids are insensitive to the poor, to racism, to social justice, to taxes, to laws, to facts, and the rest of what we onc ecalled "society." Conservatism, with the help of Fox News, have wrecked America. Deal with it.”
“I've been hammering on this story since it was first announced. I harass @samFeistCNN and @jonKleinCNN routinely on Twitter, hoping they understand that we're not going to sit back and watch them Foxify CNN without a little struggle—it not a big one.
Here is the video and explainer we produced on Erickson.
As one of the more visible of those "left leaning" partisan crashers on Twitter, inundating CNN with "bloodthirsty outrage," I am amused by the sheer volume of words you have just expended, basically saying "Oh, those CNN boys will be boys?"
Are you so cynical from your years helping these unwholesome whores, that you simply roll over and let them fail or succeed with their gambit without even a token cry of outrage or resistance? Do you think you're educating us by telling us that they knew full well what the reaction would be to hiring Erickson? That was obvious from the first tweet from Sam Feist, and the cover fire he'd already arranged with his troopers like Ed Henry, who were armed with the corporate talking points before the words hit the first browser.
Your screed is is precisely the kind of droll, oh-so-worldly, inside baseball acquiescence to what these concorporate tools do, that gave us Lou Dobbs, Glenn Beck, and Michelle Malkin in the first place. In 2005, FAIR captured Jon Klein admitting how predictable such muted, weak-kneed reactions from the left have become. http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=2489

“Keep on doing what you're doing there, Shaq (see how annoying that is?). Keep telling yourself that bombarding CNN with crazy tweets is an effective means of making yourself heard and getting your point across in a way that might produce actual results. Let me know how that works out for you.”
