Media The Fuck-Word

Apparently, someone named Joe Scarborough accidentally said “fuck you” on his MSNBC morning news show this morning. Mike Barnicle, who is a plagiarizing dick who somehow still has a career as a pundit, was shocked. Everybody on Joe Scarborough’s little morning news show acted like a bunch of children in a classroom when a student accidentally lets slip with a swear. They responded by giggling and doing double-takes and with “great apologies” and lame jokes about washing his mouth out with soap. It’s embarrassing to watch these adults acting like children:
Seriously: How many kids were watching Joe Scarborough on MSNBC this morning? How is it that, on a show for adults that discusses adult issues, an accidental vulgarity can pull a discussion of the news to a full stop? It’s 2008. Fucking get over it. There are much worse things, like for instance the sad state of television journalism, to get all huffy about.
