The New York Times Thinks We're Too Cynical?

We thought this was worth mentioning, even though we don't watch FOX News, but are only accused of it. From the mouth of New York Times executive editor Bill Keller:
I think if you're a regular viewer of Fox News, you're among the most cynical people on planet Earth.
Wow. Just wow - but, since FOX viewers are mostly conservatives, that statement does prompt a question:

After 10 years of The New York Times' unwarranted Bush bashing, Tea Party lies, Sarah Palin slander, NewAge misinformation - and just good old fashioned "making things up" - where does this clown think we got our current cynicism from?

Plus, don't forget, there can be an upside to cynicism:

As the Left learned during their march to the White House, it can work really well as a tool for steamrolling the opposition.

Look, get used to it, kids. And if it'll help you to understand us better now, pull out your old records by The Clash and listen to "The Clampdown" for a refresher:

"Let fury rule the hour - anger can be power - if you know how to use it!"
Yeah! See, you weren't the only Punks in the audience after all! We were listening, and learning, and - hey - you were asking for it!

So, as the old saying goes, you want it? You got it!
