I've had to shut off social media for the time being, as the circular discussions are driving me nuts. Just to be clear, I'm as shocked and offended by the various racial and sexual slurs uttered by over half the house as everybody else.
But I can no longer handle the chatter.
Every one of those unfortunate comments is being rehashed and rehashed. We all know what was said! We all agree that it's horrible!
There's no coverup, though. The incidents (except for maybe one case of loose lips) all happened after Saturday's veto meeting. Sunday's show was already in the can at that point, and it also didn't fit Tuesday's timeline. Tonight is the night that it would be shown, during that opening segment that is usually present to make you believe the eviction is a tossup.
I predict some of it will be shown, and it is due to those that heard them on Sunday and Monday. It was those people that led to news outlets such as NPR, HuffPo, and other publications to report on the incidents. It was those people that are ultimately responsibel for Rachel Reilly's self-serving interview with TMZ earlier today.
Without it hitting the media, CBS could have easily swept the story under the rug. They're now forced to deal with it, and I'd be shocked if they didn't. If they do ignore it, then you can scream about conspiracies.
Until then, I'd like a couple of hours of other topics. Can you help a fella out?
