A Birthday Note For Media Matters' Eric Boehlert by Greg Gutfeld 7 Dec 2010 post a comment Share This: So it was Eric Boehlert's birthday last night, and no one noticed. Well, except for me. I sent the Media Matters mope a bouquet of edible underwear - since it may be one of the few things George Soros won't pay for. But what a gloomy day for E-B. He has just one job: watching Fox News in his tie-dye onesie... and he even screwed that up. Days ago, his hive of hacks mistook a Leno skit for a Fox Special Report clip. And this caused them to issue a "regret the error" note. Now - don't get me wrong. This is NOT a big deal. People make mistakes like this all the time. I probably made seven of them in the last sentence. So no gloating over here. However, it should offer a moment of contemplation for Eric, as that curved line of middle age descends toward death: this is what you do for a living, and you don't do it well. Think about it. Your job is to focus all of your energies on "media bias." But because the media world - i.e. television news, motion pictures, the art world, news papers, academia, all forms of pop music and pop culture in general - are liberal- it only leaves your progressive outfit with one real target. And that's Fox News. So that's got to tell you something: if your time is consumed needling just one outlet - that says you're barnacled to the bloated side of liberal bias. Or, you would have many more targets. Simple, no? Worse, that's a cushy job, and you mucked it up. You're like that kid in class whose only assignment is to carry around an egg - a lesson in responsibility - and you dropped it. That's got to be a sign: as another birthday passes, it's time to do something for a living an adult can be proud of. Churning out repetitive spurts of envious whining doesn't make for a life - even if Soros pays dearly for it. An alternative: pressed flower craft. it's like decoupage, but with pressed flowers. And if you disagree with me, you're worse than Hitler. Tonight: the lovely Lauren Sivan! the lovely John Gibson! the lovely Imogen Lloyd Webber! Bonus for Media Matters tonight: the Robots recreate Eric's birthday!
