The Guilded Page


I mean, seriously now. Didn't this kind of shit used to be illegal? You know, something about preventing one individual, business, Point Of View from dominating the dissemination of information.

Oh. That's right. It's the ownership society. Fuck you (me), Commie!

  1. I can't wait for all those FOX viewers to start reading the Wall Street Journal looking for the NASCAR results. The WSJ is nothing but a Corpocracy hacksheet anyway, so let Rupert have it. I hope he dumbs it down for the Poor White Trash crowd. It already has the Rich White Trash, so why not go for the Poor White Trash as well?

  2. "It is the international system of currency which determines the vitality of life on this planet. THAT is the natural order of things today. THAT is the atomic and subatomic and galactic structure of things today. And YOU have meddled with the primal forces of nature. And YOU WILL ATONE. Am I getting through to you, Mr. Beale? You get up on your little 21-inch screen and howl about America, and democracy. There is no America; there is no democracy. There is only IBM, and ITT, and AT&T, and DuPont, Dow, Union Carbide, and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today."

    I know this is a lazy comment, but I thought this quote from "Network" (Paddy Chayefsky) was appropriate to the occasion. Also, fuck The Wall Street Journal, anyway. I don't need no stinkin' newspaper.

  3. Fox viewers reading??? LOL!!!

    That's Good One, Neil!

    Totally appropriate quote, Larry! Thanks for the reminder. I've still not seen that flick. It's definitely on my "one day" list, though.

  4. Might as well stick the WSJ up there at the supermarket checkout aisle with The Sun. There will soon be a space vacated by the Weekly World News.

  5. Rupert will tumble. The day will come when we see him tumble. I did note that he donated heavily to the Hillary campaign.
