The 11/3 Project

I often watch The Daily Show, and Jon Stewart's recent tribute to Glenn Beck was just so awesome that I have to mention it on my blog. He just emulated Glenn Beck so well that I could very well imagine Beck saying the exact same things. It probably wouldn't be funny at all if you've never had the misfortune of seeing Glenn Beck speak, though.

The sad thing is that the arguments used in the eight-minute parody are just as strong as the ones Glenn Beck's fans swallow hook, line, and sinker all the time. Unless his fans think his show is actually a comedy ...

Troubling rumors about a TV personality

There are troubling rumors that a certain TV talk show host raped and murdered a young girl in 1990. I do not believe this to be true, but the lack of response concerning the matter from said talk show host is disturbing. If he did not commit these horrendous crimes, then why will he not deny these allegations? Is it possible that these rumors are actually true?

... I'm not sure why, but there seems to be something horribly wrong with this way of thinking. But said talk show host argues like this all the time, so this line of thinking has to have something to it, right? It can't be the case that a famous person that has his own television show talks nonsense on a regular basis, can it?

Good reality TV

I have a low opinion of most reality television shows. The things they make people do feel way too contrived, not to mention that a lot of the supposedly dramatic moments feel contrived, too. But there are some rare exceptions, such as the show God Loves ME Best!. It helps that it's not a real reality show but rather a parody of a reality show.

The "premise" of the show is to gather people with various religious beliefs and show how they live together. I find it very funny the way they satirize all of the represented religions (and non-religion). Even us atheists are shown in an unflattering light. And the opening sequence reminds me of the Brady Bunch.
