Social Media

The trouble with Facebook and Twitter- actually all social media to a certain extent- is that it gives Anonymous people the opportunity to vent in a vicious way that they would never ever do face to face.

The language that is sometimes used, the casual cruelty, the lack of any kind of social grace or taste is deplorable- that's why people abandon social media.

And I bet you dollars to doughnuts that the vast majority of the people who are mean-spirited on the web are losers in life and this is their one opportunity to take out a switchblade knife to try to cut somebody they secretly envy.

But let me just say that if you are one of them then just get the hell off my Facebook or my Twitter.

I don't want you, the people who have something to contribute don't want you, you're a loser. Just go away find a hobby.

I find it so ironic that people come on this site to say horrible things and pretend that they don't care about what I'm saying.

Its just because in some way that makes them a bigger person.

Just go away if you don't want to talk in a civilized way. I'm not asking you to agree with me-God knows I work at Fox News and know that the vast majority of the people who watch me regularly on television do not agree with what I have to say. but just try to be a sapient being with a brain.

If you want to be an asshole, just go away.
