Oh, I forgot to mention another thing about the intereview.
O'Reilly said that he was criticized for telling some gay guest on his own show to "Shut up." He said in the interview that what he really said was, "Shut up about sex." He felt that they should have included it when they "quoted" him (and claimed that the full sentence was in the transcript of his show). To give him the benefit of the doubt, we feel that that is only fair and must agree with him.
The influence of advertising, the media, and partisan politics, among other things, poses great challenges to clear thinking. The demands of work, a lack of time, and the overwhelming flow of information further add to the problem. Can we rise to the challenge and improve the ways in which we think?
Our attempts at better thinking can lead to better solutions and a better life.
