Mea Culpa Meltdown


Man, did y’all see Peter Arnett’s mea maxima culpa on the Today Show this morning? I don’t know if I’ve ever seen anything like it. He basically said he was a spent sack of journalistic offal who betrayed the trust of his employer and his American viewers. He groveled like nobody’s business. It was one of the most humiliating things I’ve ever seen on TV. Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving journalist. He’s radioactive now, and will be lucky to get work as a weekend anchor on the UPN affiliate in Bugtussle, Arkansas.

By the way, anybody know if Geraldo really has been booted? Boy, that’d be a daisy-cutter to his ego. He’s been such a grandstander (as usual). He’s so full of himself. I can’t stand to watch him.
