Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

From the Mouths of Babes

Below the fold is a video that is meant to be provocative. On one hand, I agree with what the kid is saying, but on the other hand, I find it repulsive that the adults involved with the making of this video are comfortable with using a kid to say such things. Why hide behind a kid? Why not take credit for your own opinions and words?

Rhetorical response from Bill O’Reilly … *yawn* .. why wouldn’t he just ignore this, instead of drawing more attention to the video by ranting about it?

    Mixed feelings. I mean, there are parents on the opposite side of the spectrum teaching and encouraging their kids to believe and say the exact opposite.

    I think they used a kid to heighten the effect of the statement. A child is chastizing O’Reilly! A CHILD! (laughter)

    And it worked too – O’Reilly took the bait. If the adults had put themselves up on youtube – no one would have noticed. It’s sensationalism.

    The smart-aleck kid has been a fixture in entertainmant for a long time, and for good reason.
