Don't Believe the Hype

Aereo has been shut down by the Supreme Court. Shady tech bros want to get rich by avoiding paying the licensing fees and following the regulations that everyone else does. I'm supposed to feel bad for them? When they're dumb enough to learn nothing at all from Napster? I'm no fan of the media hegemony, but Aereo wasn't "striking a blow for freedom" or any such nonsense. It was a bunch of dudes trying to get rich. And now they're trying to get public sympathy on their side by claiming to be fighting for freedom blah blah blah. They are not somehow morally superior to the tv stations and producers that they were trying to profit off of. Don't fall for their marketing hype.

Thank God for Savage and Scarborough. Without them, who, besides Rush, O'Reilly, Buchanan, Novak, Kristol, Roger Ailes, Hannity, Barnes, Hume, Will, the Wall Street Journal, The Washington Times, The New York Post, the Weekly Standard, American Spectator, The New York Sun, all of Fox, most of MSNBC cable, much of CNN, ABC, National Review, Drudge, Andy, Ann Coulter, Bernard Goldberg, etc, etc, would have the guts to take on The liberal media?
