And the award goes to...
As many of you have pointed out, Sam and Fuzzy was once again denied an Academy Award this year. Some speculated this was because Sam and Fuzzy is not a movie. A few others thought it might have had something to do with Fuzzy calling the Motion Picture Academy a bunch of "spineless egonmaniacal buck-toothed pornographers." Your guess is as good as mine, really.
It is really interesting to compare the "war coverage" of the big American news networks to any other source, be it online or even from other national TV news networks. Regardless of my views on the Middle East, I don't understand how anyone could be satisfied with the media circus that CNN and Fox News have become this week. I know we live in an age of corporate media ownership and "embedded reporters" and everything, but the level of bias is becoming ludicrous. I'm lucky because I can compare this sensationalist garbage to some at least marginally thoughtful analysis on CBC Newsworld. Folks, if you aren't getting a good variety of views on TV, it's definately time to hit the web. It takes at least three perspectives to make a 3D image.
Ok, that was a lousy metaphor, but you know what I mean. :)
