Lessons from a dutch Julian Assange, Chris Hölsken

Instead of telling you what I don't know about the Assange-schebackle, let me tell you about a case involving the mayor of our neighbouring town. Chris Hölsken brought the anger of that mayor upon himself when he called the town a pedovillage on his website that fights against child porn and informs the public of pedophiles. This all happened a while ago, but this very week it was in the news again. What happened, you ask?

Well, for the second night in a row, someone has thrown a rock through the window of a house in the town. The inhabitants were mentioned on the website. So the mayor and the minister of justice simply want to remove the site asap, because they won't have it that citizens start taking justice in their own hands. Both politicians are trying hard to take the website down, and are now investigating if they can hold Hölsken responsible for the damage caused.

Translating to the Assange-case, how likely is it they'll hold Julian responsible for future terrorist attacks? What is really the problem here for anyone? If this is the information age, can we at least learn to deal with its freedom? Both these websites have proven merits, they're only making a common error as explained in Jon Stewart's words : Stop with the drama already, we're not that easily impressed. We know our governments lie to us, we know there are pedophiles in our neighbourhoods and families.

They both can have their websites, but they should act like adults, not like mud-flinging kiddies.


Church is not the place to help the poor


Why Chris Matthews is in the stupid category

I almost forgot why I dislike Chris Matthews so much, but TYT was there to refresh my memory. Somebody should kick that baby.


Jon Stewart savages bloggers, killing some


Tell-lie-vision is a weapon of mass deception

Hard to tell who to hate more, have a pick between the business channels lying us into depression or the political outlets lying us into war. This is the way of the west? Shame on us.


Send in the clowns

Tucker Carlson rips Jon Stewart a new one... not. Instead he proves who the real clowns are. Thank God - or Allah or G'nesh or whoever - that show got cancelled. Oh, the hackery.


Best liberals in the world

The last late night with Conan O'Brien

Looking forward to seeing Conan on the tonight show, but I'll miss Jay Leno.


Glenn Beck, ignoramus and hypocrite

Glenn Beck is still on the loose. It's mindpuzzling how he remains a free man after showing the world his lunacy for so many years... He needs treatment, bad.


Grow some balls or lend Hillary's

Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton educate the media on sexism. These kittens are correct. Many pundits are acting like pussies out there. Nerdville needs to toughen up, big time.


Reporting of a jackass

I really don't get this. All the time, reporters are telling us to stay safely inside for the storm, blablabla. So then they go outside in the heart of a friggin' storm to report on the hard winds and the debris flying around. Man, we've seen Twister, mkay. We have an idea of what hard winds look like and what they can do. There's no need for you to go about risking your life as to show us. That stuff is for the new season of Jackass, jackass.


Is this the news or "Jackass"?

Crazy NBC reporting going on here. Am I watching the news or Jackass?! And what kind of a hurricane name is Gustav? Is Russia attacking America by weather?


Is your momma a whore? No disrespect...

Jon Stewart explains exactly what was wrong with ABC's 'debate': the moderators.

George Stephanopolus and Charlie Gibson were an absolute disgrace, asking one ridiculous question after another. The lunacy was not in the subject of the questions, rather in the phrasing of them.

"I would like to ask Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopolus why their debate sucked. I'm not questioning their journalism, it f** sucked!"


Go Fox yourself

John Oliver with a brilliant summary of the "fair and balanced" Fox 'News'-approach:

Clinton?! Bad! Bush?! Good! Democrat?! Bad! Republican?! Good! People?! Bad! Companies?! Good! Taxes?! Bad! War?! Good!.... please do carry on.


Clean language? Bite me.

I've been keeping my very own Lewis Black week, clustered to my monitor watching everything that can be found on ComedyCentral, and it is great. Here's Lewis on my all-time favorite subject: 'foul' language. The joke's on anyone trying to keep people in the media from using 'profanity'. Keep your funking ears open!
