Out the window

 The NYT article on Bill O’Reilly’s firing–and Fox News’ future–includes one of my favorite words: defenestration

Let’s call it our “words of the day.”

I love the very idea that we have a word for “getting thrown out the window.”

After all, it doesn’t happen too often, unless you want to start the 30 Years’ War.

By contrast, we lack a single word to describe all sorts of things we do everyday, such as walking up and down the stairs.

Of course, if you are walking up or down the stairs and someone decides to toss you out the window, then, we have a one-word description.

Best (and funniest) TV interview today

Tucker Carlson interviews CEO of “Demand Protest,” which provides protesters on demand.The CEO, “Dom Tullipso,”  plays it absolutely straight, claiming it is a real organization. Tucker goes at him hard, as if he is trying to get away with fraud.

Gradually, it dawns on Tucker that this guy is doing a performance to show how gullible TV networks are.

The best part is when “Dom” says how much he supports Peyton Manning (meaning Chelsea Manning).
