Death: Celebrities vs Everyone Else

By now, everyone should know that the mainstream media is full of hype and bullshit. If you don’t, then you are in the dark and are considered to be one of the “sheeple” who get force fed their information, led around by the hand, and would be lost without your masters.

Recently (I’m certain everyone has heard by now), the actor Heath Ledger has died. I’m certain you’ve heard of this because it’s been plastered all over since his death. While sad, it also helps illustrate a point. The point is this. There are thousands of individuals who have died in the war. There are even more who have died before, during, and since the actors death. You probably haven’t heard their names and certainly haven’t seen the media coverage about them. Are they less important because you haven’t seen them in a blockbuster movie? Because that’s all that separates Heath from you.

While personally I am not a fan of Montel Williams, I do however applaud him for bringing this topic up during an interview where he could have clearly just advertised his show and book. Instead, he turns the tables on Fox’s show.

Update: It appears Montel Williams has lost his job now just recently after the interview above. Did he lose his job because of the interview? A lot of people think so. It may in fact be true, but honestly, I think this was a long time coming anyway. I mean, anybody remember Jenny Jones or Riki Lake or Morton Downy Jr.? They all lost their jobs too. They had trashy talk shows with trashy guests and trashy viewers – who the hell really cares? I think they all lose their jobs at some point and move on – it’s the way of trashy TV.

Even children are skeptical of Bush. I can just picture a caption here: “Back off cracker!”.
