With Anchorwoman Dead, Can O'Reilly Be Next?

23

August

I knew Anchorwoman's awful ratings would prompt Fox to put the show on a short leash. But even I Anchorwoman2 never imagined the network would cancel the series after just one airing -- bowing to the realities of low viewership where arguments about ethics and taste failed.

My only concern now: Did the show flame out because it got so much bad press before it aired? Or does this just prove that young people could give a crap about the news, even when its presented inside a comedy/parody/reality show?

And now that Anchorwoman's down, maybe the tsunami of bad karma produced by the show can be directed to the next spoke in our Media Axis of Evil, Bill O'Reilly.

Courtesy of my man Amani Channel, here's one of the best rebuttals to O'Reilly's barely-concealed prejudice that I've ever seen.
