Lawrence O'Donnell melts down

Hilarious if you haven't seen it yet. Came out yesterday. No wonder they did this to him if this is how he routinely treats his co-workers. I love watching these prima donna assholes melt down and get outed for the angry miserable pieces of shit that they truly are.

Enjoy.

And yet the menace of the years
Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

That irritated my soul by just watching this short cry-baby rant. What a tool of the highest order! He comes across as one of those kids that was never turned down when he wanted something and doesn't know how to act rationally when he doesn't get his way.

Shouldn't this be in the 'Small Pleasures' thread?

Well that is Bill O'Reilly so that's quite obviously different and I refuse to accept that as being even remotely in the same category because it doesn't support my political beliefs nor the obviously slanted political agenda that I am trying to push on others as the only acceptable outcome. And you, Sir, are obviously a racist Nazi homophobic asshole for pointing out the hypocrisy of my beliefs....

Oh wait....I'm not a liberal. Never mind.

Yeah O'Reilly is an asshole too.

I friggin' LOVE the OReilly meltdown. "FUCK IT! WE'LL DO IT LIVE!!" is still my favorite response around the office whenever a server goes down or a skype connection fails at a VTC meeting.

Anyone see the little mousy NYC frumpystilskin intern at 4:39? Yeah, don't expect someone like that to stand up for themselves. And who wants to bet that's the sort of person who would give up their vote for student loan forgiveness? And yes, I am an asshole and am judging them based solely on appearance.

Love it.

I'm happy to report I have no idea who O'Donnell is. Unfortunately I do know who O'Reilly is, the leading reason I no longer watch most news shows.

For no particular reason other than it still makes me warm inside:

I wasn't attempting to point out any hypocrisy. In hindsight, I guess I should have added "This reminds me of..." at the beginning of my post.

No worries...it just shows that there are spoiled, whiny people on both sides of the political spectrum. It actually warmed my heart a little to watch their breakdowns.

In today's technical world, I don't understand how these people don't suspect that in some form or fashion, their blunders and outbursts would end up on the web. Maybe they simply don't care....

As you probably know, he got turfed and replaced by Tucker Carlson, who is a huge improvement over that self-righteous douche. Now he has the time to write his own books....

If they could only get rid of Juan Williams. Great moment the other day when he asked if he could just bang his head on the table and the other four people at the table enthusiastically encouraged it.

Come back to Fox, if only to boost their Nielson against the others.

No need for guilt, it's a completely valid process. "Appearance is signaling".

I can watch Lara Logan if the sound is turned off.

Haven’t watched O’Reilly since his Chris Kyle interview. I thought he was disrespectful. Glad O’Reilly is gone.

There have been a lot of classic media meltdowns over the years. The ones that always stood out for me were a Casey Kasem meltdown over something to do with one of the "dedications" on his radio show, and the other one was Howard Cosell going on about some glitch and kept asking "who goofed?!".

And if you live in Chicago, you never get tired of hearing Lee Elia, the Cubs manager back in the 80s, go totally ballistic after the Cubs lost another game during one of their many bad seasons back then.

Yeah, that was pretty good. I'm gonna say fuck all those talking head propogandist dicklickers who participate in this media ratings race, regardless of political affiliation.

I'm so out of touch I had to google up who this twatwaffle was. He's a bit excitable. Like to see him try to manage a firefight with the BC chirping in one ear and talking with fast movers dropping bombs in his other ear while somebody shoots RPG's at him.
