Awwww. I was kinda hoping they'd caught one of the liberals in something careless. We rarely throw them very many bones, and the last one that I can think of is Chris Hayes talking about the troops. Scarborough though? That's barely trying, of course he said something dumb.

/where's the liberal show on Fox News, incidentally?

So we're calling the douche Sideshow Bob now? I don't know who decided that, but that's hilarious.

You guys should do yourselves a favor and stop paying attention to cable news.

Sure it's bad, but on the bright side it's starting to get so bad that it's hard to deny. Journalism is broken.

"Sideshow Bob : James Holmes"

(or, alternately, vice verse).

Apparently he hasn't said much of anything at all. I maintain my theory that he thinks he's dead.

He looks more like Cecil than Bob.

There is also the matter of the four years at clown college.

It's obvious that James Holmes isn't right in the head. I don't think it matters what variety of disturbed he is, he surrendered to police at the scene as the shooter. There really is no debate on his innocence or guilt. There are some mitigating circumstances in every crime, I suppose. But he admits his guilt and has not been ruled too incompetent to do so. So really, his mental and emotional hang ups don't matter. Doesn't matter if he's too autistic to relate to the world, doesn't matter if his IQ is 120 or 70. Doesn't matter if his mommy raped him. He's guilty beyond doubt, even to himself. Sentence him and let it rest.

Drew himself has endorsed it, if I remember the threads right, but I'm not sure he was the first: there's at least one thread calling him that which predates Drew's tweet.

I have Asperger's. Of the many people I've known with Asperger's, it seems like a higher-than-average proportion of them seem to be very angry. It's not even most of them, just that it seems like more of my Asperger's friends are angry than my neurotypical friends.

I personally don't think we're any more likely to act on that than NT people. Possibly even less likely, because I think people with Asperger's might be a little more afraid of jail than others, because of our need for routines we can control. And we are quite capable of compassion and empathy. We're not robots. But sometimes we probably give off that impression, which baffles NT people and leads to statements like this.
 
2012-07-24 02:55:03 PM
Not to defend them, but I don't think it's laziness as much as it is the pressure to fill the every growing-media balloon with air. They fill the time with speculation because they have to fill it with something. If we didn't have the 24 hour news cycle and we didn't feel that we were owed a full story within minutes of an event, we might have thoughtful reporting again.

And the clown acts like Hannity, et al. would be where people like Morton Downy Jr. used to be.

I had that once when my doctor switched me to Buspar. I experienced such strong derealization that I wasn't actually sure I was alive. Fortunately, I stopped taking it and made him switch me back.

While you are correct, I still contend that Politburo is the way to go because it starts with a P and it sounds more communismy. Accuracy is not important in the children's insult game.

What the hell is MSNBC? They went out of business like two weeks ago.

Anyway, yeah I won't be shocked to find out he's autistic, schizophrenic or ate a bunch of bath salts.
 
2012-07-24 03:00:13 PM
To be fair, MSNBC is more like monkeys flinging poop at a keyboard than a news organization. You kind of expect this kind of nonsense from them.

Millennium: Great Janitor: Has this guy made any form of statement explaining why he did this?

So, if he has not said anything, what is the purpose of claiming he's affiliated with any political group or that his actions where aligned with any group? I have heard people claim that he was both with the Occupy movement and a Tea Partier. Any journalist who makes such claim without evidence is not doing anything but insulting the victims and the members of the groups that they claim he belongs to. And claiming that he might have mentail illness A or B is not any better.

I really wish we had news groups that reported fact, all the facts, and nothing else.

I blame Joel Schumacher. If he hadn't ruined the earlier franchise with Batman & Robin, it would have continued with another movie or so. And the time would not have been right in 2005 for Christopher Nolan to reboot it with Batman Begins. No, it would have taken a couple more years and given "the butterfly effect", it would have been a different director, most likely one that would not have created such an effective Joker, who this asshole is emulating.

So fark you, Joel Schumacher!

Despite what he allegedly did, he is still a human being who deserves the decency to at least be called by his own name.

Nah. If he ate bath salts, he would have been naked when he shot the place up.

I dunno, he claimed he was the Joker. If he's using silly names instead of his own, I don't see why the rest of us can't.

I'd like to create a news channel called "yesterdays news". It would report the same stuff, just with a minimum of 12 hours after any given event so that people could check stuff.

I know. Nobody would watch it.
