Actor and filmmaker Harry Shearer, best known for his voice work in 'The Simpsons', blasted the news media in a speech to the National Press Club on Monday.
Specifically, he singled out the media's "myth-making" tendency - its constant desire to fit current events into mostly pre-formed narratives. "What I’m calling a ‘template,’ is based on facts. Some facts. A partial collection. The first dusting," Shearer claimed. "It then becomes adopted as ‘the narrative.' The mental doors lock shut, and no further facts are allowed in."
UPDATE: Sources tell NewsBusters Limbaugh-Rogers wedding slated for June 2010, which was reported as July 4, 2010 by Behar.
It's probably no surprise, but conservative talker Rush Limbaugh isn't going to get a break from the liberal cheap shot artists on cable television in the wake of the news he will be getting married to Kathryn Rogers on July 4, 2010.
"All right - let's move on to Rush Limbaugh, ok," Behar said. "Reportedly he set the date for his fourth wedding, July 4th - how patriotic of him. Isn't he patriotic? And the lucky lady is named Kate Rogers. Isn't that - so are you happy for him? I guess anyone can find love, right?"
