a scary, scary place

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 21, 2006

Brent Bozell's Media Research Center posts the Notable Quotes of 2005, in which collector's items of media pieties are displayed for our gratification. You'll appreciate this gem from the Katrinafest:

"Do I need to be concerned that I'm going to go live with a church family, are they going to proselytize me, are they going to say, 'You better come to church with me or else, I'm, you know, you're not going to get your breakfast this morning'?"

-- Co-host Harry Smith asking author/pastor Rick Warren about church families taking in those displaced by Hurricane Katrina, on CBS's Early Show, September 6.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Mmmmmm . . . quel dork. Whenever I see stuff from the MRC, I'm reminded how glad I am I don't watch morning shows.

    You have to admit that for the average network reporter that would be a fate worse than death. (And those of you who may remember my work history know that I know whereof I speak.)

    I'd be more concerned about being forced to watch endless reruns of a CBS media hack doing insulin shock inducing biographies on A&E. Perhaps its time for Mr. Smith to go to Washington.
