Recently I saw a bumper sticker that sent me into spasms of laughter, almost to the point of tears. It read:
"Fox News: Keeping You Stupid 24 Hours a Day."
OK, here's a good example...reporting on the Clinton Challenge to Obama to join her in a Lincoln/Douglass style debate, this is the graphic they used as background to the story.
So, what's wrong with this picture?
First of all, Stephen Douglass was WHITE! The image on screen is that of Fredrick Douglas who was BLACK and an abolitionist. There are many other differences, but you get the idea.
The stoopid, it burns.
And so the stoopid goes.
