We’ve just invaded Iraq and the nation is in chaos. Afghanistan is in a shambles. North Korea is threatening us with nuclear weapons. A deadly respiratory disease is beginning to sweep across the globe. The Bush administration is steadily eroding the civil liberties that make this country what it is. Millions in Africa are dying from AIDS. The economy is in the toilet.
And WUSA TV here in Washington is promoting their latest bit of investigative journalism: “Internet ‘N’ Word,” breaking the important story of the use of the word “nigger” on eBay.com.
Thank goodness for the media.
