Well I'm all for camera guys not getting beat up, but if you don't want to be hassled move with the mass don't stand in front of it like an ass thinking everyone go around you. They either wanted to incite that reaction, or need to be purged for being so daft. I would guess it's the former.
I think they clearly wanted that reaction. First, they sent a cast member from Revenge of the Nerds to be the "reporter." to an anti-government rally.
Second, they clearly had no idea what the hell they were talking about going into the converstation. "Surprisingly, these far leftists don't love Obama!" Right. Because every lefty I know loves Obama.
Third, that repeated question about the first amendment the reporter keeps asking is just to goad a reaction. Where in the first amendment does it say I have to talk to the press? By ignoring you they were expressing their first amendment rights!
Even though Marino isn't a citizen and some people think we ought to deport him, I think he really does have his heart in the right spot. Thanks for the second vid Marino, I liked that one the best. And I don't care what others say, I would never turn you in to emigrations.
the citizen thing is not funny.
Why it's not funny?
Because too many people will find it plausible that just because I have an accent I may not be a citizen. That's a problem for two reasons:
1. It's not true. I've been a citizen cince '92
2. It leaves me vulnerable to all kinds of discrimination including the ability to earn a living.
Anyone that believes you are not a citizen has got to be rather clueless if the know you. You've been working for years here with the film industry and you're a property owner. What makes anyone believe or why would you think no one would believe you're not a legal citizen? Simply because of your accent? You're serious?
there's only one thing about the anti war movement and similar left wing anti establishment movements that really really hurts the cause... they all look ugly. look at Amy goodman... she's about as good as it gets folks. and her guest in that video up there? some scrawny lookin fugly guy. look at nader... dude's gotta groom himself if he wants to even be seen on TV, speak with authority... . someone has to step up that is smart and looks or sounds good. chomsky will talk you to sleep, goodman's doomsday haggard voice will cause you to commit suicide.... kucinich? bob's big boy's younger less successful brother on crack... Darryl Hannah? maybe.....
@Wink Martindale I want to disagree with you but I was thinking of the same thing. Amy Goodman looks tired. Perpetually tired. Don't get me wrong. I love her for all the work she does but somehow the tiredness that comes across becomes self defeating. As for the scrawny guy... yeah vegetarians... what can you do? jk
I think being a "spokesperson"must be a soul eating exercise. To be heard you need to have one foot in the establishment which is like having one foot in the grave. That's why they all look like zombies.
Here is a "rebels are sexy" video.
Cause the sexy people aren't the spokespeople, they are out on the street.
Do we have to have our conversations dumbed down to the lowest common denominator? Count me out if that's the case. Marino and I, I think we have a very good friendship. One that we would not let a joke dissolve it. And I don't have a problem apologizing to him, if that's what he wants.
Actually Fox is owned by Rupert Murdoch, who as an Australian I'm particularly well qualified to label as nothing less than scum.
Fox News is helping destroy democracy while the bankers loot the country. This has been going on since Reagan, and if you don't believe me, take a look at banking industry executive pay as a proportion of the GDP since the 1970s.
Not to defend Fox, but apparently Rupert Murdoch has had a massive change of heart since he remarried. His personal political view is now moving back toward the center, and apparently he cannot stand the sight of Bill O'Reilly.
Maybe Shepard Smith shouting "This is America, we do not FUCKING torture" on the air is the start of something new.
