Curse my essentially ethical nature!

I had a perfect set-up to use Ed Schultz getting the ax¬†at MSBNC as a way to insinuate stuff about the Clinton campaign… only it turns out that said insinuation wouldn’t have been supported by the evidence. So, no, Ed Schultz probably didn’t get fired because he did one too many favorable interviews with Bernie Sanders. It’s probably all just due to his having rotten ratings.

Pity, really. I was going to do a timeline, and bullet points, and everything. It would have been a thing.

    1. I had understood the scale was Degrees Morgan…based on the ratings Piers got when he had a show.
      I could be mistaken, of course.

      1. Hard measures can’t be graded on an identity politics curve. Degrees Morgan might apply to straight white males, but never to Sharpton or Maddow.

    1. That video is as far from us in time as it was from the time between the end of WWII and the start of the Korean War to when it was taped. Perspective.

      *racks metaphorical shotgun*
      Now get off of my lawn already.

      1. Yes I have been drinking.

        Early 1980’s video to today = 30+ years.
        From early 1980’s video back 30+ years = about 1951(?).

        And all of that equals a ‘go see James Lileks’ moment in order to absorb everything.

        1. so, would the idea of a tv channel entirely consisting of music videos be less weird or more weird to someone in the 50s, compared to a computer about the size of your wallet that is your phone, has maps for wherever you go, and has a camera lots of people use mostly to take pictures of whatever food they are eating to share with the world, for someone in the 80s?

          Not to mention the social absurdities.

          1. I’m still absorbing all of that. I get it. I see it. I use it.

            I am still trying to work past it all. And that I am 49 is either helping or hindering me no matter what the color of the sky is when I wake up.

  1. As an example: Donald Trump burst into the celebrity scene in the 1980’s.
    Make of that what you will.

  2. You’ll always be able to find work in Private Security Moe, ethics and honesty are marketable qualities. The pay sucks though.
