Brit Hume (a one-time Serious Journalist whose career died in state of mortal sin and who must now spend eternity using Roger Ailes jockstrap as a hammock over at Fox News) pines for the good old days when everyone who was not a card-carrying member of the Elite White Guy Club had a subordinate role in Brit Hume's America Dream, and they all fucking well knew their place!
Now everything has just up and gone to Hell!
Via Media MattersOn the Fox News show “Media Buzz” on Sunday, Howard Kurtz asked Brit Hume about the “bully narrative” surrounding Chris Christie. Mr. Hume excused his behavior as follows:Well, I would have to say that in this sort of feminized atmosphere in which we exist today, guys who are masculine and muscular like that in their private conduct, kind of old fashion tough guys, run some risk.[…]By which I mean that men today have learned the lesson the hard way that if you act like a kind of an old fashioned guy’s guy, you’re in constant danger of slipping out and saying something that’s going to get you in trouble and make you look like a sexist or make you look like you seem thuggish or whatever. That’s the atmosphere in which he operates. This guy is very much an old fashioned masculine, muscular guy, and there are political risks associated with that. Maybe it shouldn’t be, but that’s how it is.
In other words...
