Laughed my balls off when I saw that watching the episode last night.
Notice that he doesn't deny the accuracy of the statement, preferring to 'pinhead' the Groening crew for biting the hand that feeds them. (Although whose hand feeds which mouth remains in question.)Still, coming back to O'R., he blames the Simpsons crew for not kowtowing to their network.For kicking ass instead of kissing it.Funny, such stances usually elicit admiration for courage and chutzpah. Not for the Organization Man, I suppose.
Who cares? I mean...honestly if there is one show on the air that needs to be mercifully killed besides SNL, its the Simpsons. As per them making fun of Fox News...again, who the fuck cares? News Corp would show snuff films if they could get away with it, and by Bill-O creating a fake controversy, they get double the mileage off of crappy jokes that haven't been funny or relevant since the mid nineties. The Simpsons are to humor what Glenn Beck is to rational thought...
The best was the line right afterwards when the guy got off the helicopter and it crashed-- "We're not balanced! IT'S NOT FAIR!" Love that the Simpsons is still totally awesome after all these years.
