Quote of the day

Matt Loser Lauer of the little-watched NBC network, regarding the dinosaur media's year-old rehashing (as if it were brand new) of the NSA terrorist surveillance program (link):
Will there be a huge political fallout? Americans are evenly split on the domestic program [i.e., the terrorist surveillance progam].
"Evenly split"? Since when did 66% of Americans supporting NSA's efforts become an "even split"? Now I did go to college at Florida State, but I seem to recall that 66% is much greater than (i.e. not very close to "even") 50%. Excellent math skills, Matt! I see journalism no longer requires a well-rounded education in the basics anymore. liberal media bias!
