    . These are the kind of conversations Luke and I used to have.

    And were you Hitchens or Mos Def?

    Oliver's jewel-like prose clearly marks him out as Rushdie. (although he drinks like Hitch.*)

    I've seen him on this program before - is he some sort of spokesman now? Can't he just get back to doing Universal Magnetic?

    Hopefully he's realised the limits of bravado since then.

    Is this Bill Mayer's show? When/where's it on in the UK?

    Hear he's just done one on religion, which was great, say they.

    Yeah Religulous. Entertaining, but pretty weak really.

    That obsequious slug Hitchens actually manages to make Mos def look good there...

    In America, everybody listens to 19th Century Fox TV News. In which a bunch of loons just scream and scream and scream. And with each scream they tell another lie. How are we ever going to have an informed citizenry? Which means then how can we have an informed election?" - Gore Vidal

    Chomsky's tenacity and focus under extreme provocation is impressive.

    Fox Facts!

    Fox news is phenomenal.

    There was a report once from a French strike, where the Fox correspondant turned to to camera and whispered, "a lot of these people are Communists!"

    Fox fact.

    that's my problem with Hitchens, even when I agree with him (which isn't that often) I'm repulsed by how much of an odious jerk he is...did anyone see that video of him being waterboarded? here we go...I love that they're playing some kind of adult contemporary coffeeshap jam the background & I rather doubt real interrogators are as gentle & courteous...still I guess fair play to him for doing it & changing his views on waterboarding...



    also I hate to say it but Mos Def embarassed himself there quite badly. and it's not as if rappers can't be articulate, I've seen KRS-One hold his own against Sean Hannity (speaking of nutty Fox News)...

    I just watched the KRS-One, Hannity video.

    I want to live in a world in which Hannity isn't on television...

    EDIT: Except perhaps in the kind of scene which Padraig posts above.

    Holding your own against Hannity is surely not that difficult.
