Jonah Goldberg: Still Dumb
There is an old phrase: death before dishonor. It means all manner of things specifically but in general it means that to live because you blotted your copybook you'd be better off dead. Or, more specifically, better, for example, to be killed by the Nazis than to live by collaboration. Recently it has become impossible to ignore the general cupidity and criminality of Rupert Murdoch's media empire. Many who work for his media empire violate laws, suborn politicians, and generally lie like there is no tomorrow. One newspaper chose death before dishonor and Goldberg, who is reliably dumb, casts a puzzled eye at anyone who would rather do something else than work for the devil. Dolt.
