"An Orgy of Hilariously Self-incriminating Projection"

by Jay Allbritton
Marty Kaplan does the Huffington Post and the English language proud with his post today called "Soros or Murdoch".

Kaplan writes:
Get ready for a new Fox-wide onslaught on George Soros. The man Bill O'Reilly calls "the single most dangerous individual in the United States," and to whose name O'Reilly attaches the Homeric epithet "radical-left activist billionaire" as regularly as Spy magazine used "thick-fingered vulgarian" as a prefix for Donald Trump's name, is backing a new effort to unmask political propaganda, and Rupert Murdoch's minions can be counted on to denounce it in an orgy of hilariously self-incriminating projection.

The 60th anniversary of George Orwell's essay "Politics and the English Language" will be the occasion in a couple of weeks for a daylong conference at the New York Public Library subtitled "Orwell Comes to America," as well as the publication of a book called "What Orwell Didn't Know: Propaganda and the New Face of American Politics." Anyone who hasn't drunk the Murdoch/Cheney Kool-Aid will instantly recognize the legitimacy of the topic: American discourse has been hijacked by right-wing demagogues who win by smear, reign by fear, demonize dissent, treasonize reason, and accuse any public utterance which reveals their lies or intent as "liberal media bias."

He who smelt it, Fox News, dealt it.

By the way something, just because a guy has a gozillionty billion dollars and is a staunch liberal doesn't mean he's paying the light bills at the old ice station. In fact I'm not sure how the lights stay on here. I don't get a bill or anything, so it's kinda baffling. Yo George, if you're out there, sir, break me off a grant, man. This global warming is out of control. My penguins are sweating bullets! I need central air! Upgrades! Help us out.
