I don’t watch tel-a-lie-vision, so was amazed to come across this fracking rant, on fb. And yup, Letterman undercut its dramatic intensity in the end with two jokes. Was there somebody in the wings, staring him down? Was he forced to stop?
Just noticed that this video went up in July 2012. Already a year old. No more peep from Letterman? Has he not (yet) endured that fierce attack of conscience that divides the world in two?
David Letterman is not Howard Beale.
“Ladies and gentleman, we’re screwed” — if we think that celebrities are going to save us. The new world starts inside each of us. Each of us an Edward Snowden, each of us a Howard Beale.
