TED Talk: Let’s try emotional correctness

Sally Kohn gets an unbelievable amount of hate mail for doing her job: being a liberal pundit on Fox News. Political persuasion begins with emotional correctness: the respect and compassion we show one another.

Our challenge is to find the compassion for others that we want them to have for us. That is emotional correctness.

Given the current climate of anger, this seemed pretty appropriate.

Network

One of those Facebook poll things had a list of American Film Institute top 100 movies. Fortunately for me, Netflix Watch Instantly has several of the ones I wanted to see.

Network was one of them. The scene where Beale, the news announcer breaks down in the rant, “I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore,” was like watching Fox News. The rambling conspiracy-theory laden monologue strongly reminded me of the shows I have seen with Glenn Beck. Later Beale does a monologue even more Beck-ish and passes out. Amazing!

It is clear to me Beck committed copyright infringement against this movie.
