Unreality TV

People say that so-called "reality" shows are crowding out fiction from TV. But fiction can still be found - on the cable talk shows. I caught a few minutes of "Tucker" this afternoon while I was writing out holiday cards (had to slip in that personal detail to satisfy George Will). Here's how the conversation went (from memory):
Tucker Carlson: "Ahmadinejad has now proclaimed that Iran is a nuclear power [Ed. note: by which he clearly means that Iran claims to have a nuclear weapon; countries that merely have nuclear power plants are not called "nuclear powers"]."

Guest: "Now that Iran has committed not just to wiping Israel off the map, but also Great Britain and the United States..." [Ed. note: Wha-a-a-a-a-a?]
There was another guest, who I think may have been the "liberal," but no rebuttal to this utter nonsense was forthcoming.

Note to George Will - this "genius" has a one-hour television show. I have a few hundred readers a day. If you want to complain about something, there are plenty of opportunities.

Why stop here? There's more...
