Usually I try to stay away from these crappy political battles that don’t matter and actually detract, if anything, from the real news the Mega Corporations that run the news should be reporting on. However, I kind of can’t stay away from this one.
I guess i’ll give you a brief synopsis of the back story that started this sh!tstorm. Carrie Prejean, Miss California and a contestant for Miss America was asked by Celebrity Blogger (and noted Homosexual) Perez Hilton, a judge, what her thoughts were on Gay Marriage. Ms. Prejean answered that she did not believe in same sex marriage, stating she was brought up that way.
You gotta give her a little credit for sticking to her guns. In this day and age where supporting Gay Marriage (publicly) is akin to peeing your pants in the movie Billy Madison, it’s refreshing to see someone in the spotlight answer that question opposingly.
So Miss California did not win Miss America and afterward, judge Perez Hilton went on to to a Youtube video describing why she lost and calling her some mean names:
I guess he makes a good point, she could have answered in the way that takes the personal belief out of it and puts the onus on state or federal government. That’s the politcially correct way to handle that question. Nonetheless, the way she answered the question doesn’t make her wrong. It’s her opinion (unless otherwise scripted by Donald Trump’s minions).
Now for the last week or so all you hear on the news and read about on news websites is Miss California this and Carrie Prejean that. So you have the right wing media supporting her for opposing gay marriage and the left wing media bashing her for being a whore naive model.
The left wing media bringing out that she allegedly posed topless for some photos while younger, which is against pageant rules. Also that, allegedly, the Miss California pageant company paid for breast implants.
Surprisingly, all I can think about is WHO FUCKING CARES WHAT MS. CALIFORNIA THINKS ABOUT SAME SEX MARRIAGE! She’s in a beauty pageant not running for office. Get this story off my iGoogle newsfeed page and out of what little TV news I watch (but keep me informed if any more naked pictures come out).
What really drove me to write this article was a piece i saw on the Kieth Olberman program. I was so angry with it I actually watched the whole 6 minute 40 second clip. Here it is:
I can’t stand Kieth Olbermann . I can’t believe people on the left take his gospel as the Word of God when a few years ago this guy was spouting out one-liners at dunks and home runs as a sports jockey for ESPN. I got into a discussion with a bar patron recently and he was all about Olbermann. Saying how he thought Kieth was great American and that he loved his rants. I’ll admit Olbermann can spout off a good rant but I’d look pretty serious too if I had a ton of writers coming up with rant content for me. As I delved more deeply into the root of his man crush on Olbermann the guy says, “He really goes after Bill O’Reilly and I hate that guy.”. I guess that’s a valid point but going after Bill O’ is why Olbermann is even a blip on the news anchor radar these days. It’s why people like him and from what I’ve seen he has devoted a lot of time to the subject. He’s more known for policing Bill O’Reilly show than his own journalism.
After conveying these tidbits to the bar patron he accuses me of being a Bill O’Reilly lover which I denied. I told him I try to get my news and opinion from less biased sources. I cited that I thought both O’Reilly and Olbermann were puppets of their respectively right and left leaning TV networks and thus reported stories a certain way for political and or economic interests.
“Oh well you gotta admit Olbermann is better then O’Reilly… come on”. I said that’s kind of like saying Athelete’s Foot is better than Jock Itch in my book chief!
One of the more Hilarious points about the Miss California story is that everyone knows who she is now and she’s not even Miss America. Anyone know Miss America’s name? I bet she’s pissed. She won and the runner up is the big story.
note: Sorry, this should have been two posts and I really didn’t want to overuse the videos in the article but that’s just the way it happened. Better journalism when I start getting paid and bow into the will of the interests of my sponsors.
