I'm not going to link to anything specific, because if you haven't heard about this, you can find out easily enough. Anyway...
Last week, Jeff Goldstein and Bill Ardolino interviewed Michele Catalano on The Citizen Journalist Report. Jeff and Bill asked some sarcastic and insulting questions about Michele's atheism, and she flipped out on them. Afterwards, there was a big debate about whether or not it was real. They've since revealed that it was, in fact, planned as a joke, but the right side of the blogosphere is now divided over how to handle it. I just have a couple points to make:
1. I listened to that interview, and...I'm sorry if I'm insulting anyone, but...if you couldn't figure out that it was staged within two minutes of hearing it, then you. are. an. IDIOT.
2. I understand that the whole thing was a joke, but I really don't get what was funny about it. I mean...really. Was it the bleeps? The "Jew" line? The fact that two people who identify themselves as non-religious were making fun of someone for being an atheist? What? It had nothing to do with anything, and it was just completely fucking useless.
In conclusion, I still hate humanity. Thank you very much.Posted by CD on April 25, 2005 06:28 PM
