When I saw this story:
“I gave you the question and you decided to fight me, Jay, so stop your games with me. We’ve known each other for too long. I’m not somebody you talk down to from your podium. Answer my question, Jay.”
I had to wonder:
Does Joe really think he “gave” Jay the question? Doesn’t Joe realize he is nothing more than another paid teleprompter reader, like the President?
That’s all these people on TV actually are: talking monkeys. They could easily be replaced by any “Barbie” or “Ken” who can read the prompter coherently. Yet, somehow, they actually believe reading an electronic screen makes them intelligent and gives them gravitas. I wonder whether or not they have read this (pssst! It’s from the HufPo 😉 ):
Do you recall the story of Narcissus? The handsome fellow in Greek mythology who, because of his indifference and disdain toward others, was punished by the gods by falling in love with his own image? He was so enraptured by his beauty that he was unable to pull himself away from his own reflection in a pool of water and wasted away and died.
Folks, that’s all those video screens are: modern forms of that ancient reflecting pool. Be sure you don’t fall in and drown like the rest of these clowns.
