I'm back! I have been traveling quite some time, now I have some catching up to do. First, I would like to mention an appearance by Bill Kristol on the Daily Show, and yes, I know it was some time ago, but I still think it was remarkable.
Of course, Kristol is the same unapologetic Republican scumbag he's always been, but that's not the point. In the beginning of the interview, Stewart asks him about the New York Times, and Kristol goes like, "bah, The New York Times, who cares." Well, last time I checked he was employed by The Times. That's something Stewart also reminded him of, and then he said: "Well, they have one good columnist." I assume he was talking about Bob Herbert.
Corrected me if I'm wrong but dishing the paper you work for in public, especially on a popular TV show, used to get you fired when Punch Sulzberger was still in charge. What the fuck are they thinking at The Times? Or are they so desperate they put up with every scumbag?
