"This is vulgarity. This is hate speech. This is homophobic speech." Former ABC News anchor Sam Donaldson reacts to audio tapes of Fox News' Tucker Carlson. "This is the kind of speech, if left unchecked, will change this country forever," Donaldson adds. https://t.co/hemqMUsywb pic.twitter.com/ljcnXYQVbb

What is the deal with this “change the country/world FOREVER” … uh, trope that’s in every movie trailer these days? Heck, Sam Donaldson hasn’t even changed the way he combs his hair since
the Iran Hostage Crisis Watergate. (Okay, I just realized that I was confusing 85-year-old Sam Donaldson and 79-year-old Ted Koppel.)
For example, people have been writing credible exposes on the Southern Poverty Law Center FOREVER and yet nothing ever changes except the SPLC piles up even more money in the Cayman Islands.
