What would todays media do with this?
Experience has sown few seeds of doubt in him: not that his mind is closed, but it’s closed round whatever he believes at the time. “Christianity will go,” he said. “It will vanish and shrink. I needn’t argue about that; I’m right and I will be proved right. We’re more popular than Jesus now; I don’t know which will go first-rock ‘n’ roll or Christianity. Jesus was all right but his disciples were thick and ordinary. It’s them twisting it that ruins it for me.” He is reading extensively about religion.
Quote by John Lennon
It would be a shit storm! It was, but not to the point of where Paula Dean’s “ENNNN” word mistake. I think we should remove the letter ‘N’ completely out of the alphabet and replace it with the happy face Emodicon so we :)ever have to use the phrase 🙂 – word again.
This brings me to Mrs Paula Dean.
First I would never compare a human health hazard to the ‘walrus’ but I will compare the coverage.
I do have a tendency to treat this blog like my personal Speakers’ Corner, but I do enjoy a good rant.
Please enjoy this. Do me a favor, when you do read it to yourself or preferably out loud in Starbucks , read it with an aggravated tone and poke yourself just enough to get irritate . It will be exactly how I felt when I think about this current event.
Do you know who the real villains is in the Paula Dean demolition project? It is every pinhead news agency, newscaster or any donut burger loving, butter basted TV viewing sheep out there that can’t boil an egg without a recipe.
We all know that any racism is not acceptable, but a poorly chosen word, by a excitable old southern women should be taken for what it is, “ya know, she’s sometime a little stupid-bless her heart…” (Spoken in a southern accent of course) and that’s it. That is all the attention it should get.
This “story” should have never been stewing for this long nor should anyone care. This women’s life, income and career is destroyed. Two months from now..it will be completely forgotten, milked to death with absolutely zero social change, impact and in the big picture, completely unimportant.
What is important is to be to remember people are at war all around the world, banks and Wall Street have destroyed many people’s lives, oh ya, we have the NSA thing. People are starving, living in the streets and we have an obesity problem with kids, figure that one out, and we give a shit about #PaulaDean? Really?
Sure, comedians have joke material for a week. I have a few good ones in the bag…
But @cnn @fox or any other news outlet that feels that this issue is worth this kind coverage is relevant- Please, I beg of you, shut the fuck up and do some good. Even better, be a journalist, have some integrity! I can assure you, you won’t get a Pulitzer or any broadcast award for this ‘chicken fried-gate’ coverage you are obsessively chewing on, like a piece of grizzle on a beer battered pork rind, which is never good.
I am not saying that Paula Dean should not apologize, but keep in in perspective and keep it as a “by the way” article instead.
This is an account of my conversation just last night with a couple I thought knew better.
