Me in Today’s WALL STREET JOURNAL

By Debbie Schlussel
Morgan Spurlock of “Supersize Me” fame is now the purveyor of an Islamo-phony “documentary” on F/X. And he tried to get me to play a supporting role. I wrote about it in today’s Wall Street Journal. A different, much longer version runs below.

You need to get on Stern again to publicize this. Listeners to Howard are most likely to watch this show.

I heard her on Howard Stern today. Of course Stern barely gave her the time of day and just proceded to comment how angry she is after she hung up.
What a Dhimmi he has become.

Ms. Schlussel:
Your column reminded me of a show that aired in New Zealand in July 2004, and which was subject to a fairness and denigration complaint before the New Zealand Broadcasting Standards Authority (BSA). In fact, it’s possible this show was the inspiration for Spurlock’s current overindulgence in that other junk food, dhimmitude.
The show – Eating Media Lunch – satirized Spurlock’s Super Size Me. The host of the show, Jeremy Wells, noted that there were three times as many Middle-Eastern style fast food outlets in Auckland as there were McDonalds restaurants and so he set out to eat at only those establishments for 30 days. His “results” were as follows: After a few days the host claimed to begin wearing traditional Arab dress and reading the Koran. As he consumed more Middle-Eastern fast food – kebabs, mostly – he progressed to trying to light his shoe on a bus, blowing up a car, and, ultimately became an Islamic fundamentalist terrorist, beheading a cat in a shaky home video.
The complainant charged that the show contained “fully fledged mockery of Muslims.”
Mercifully for the reputation of New Zealanders sense of humor, the BSA judged the show to be acceptable satire and parody.
Here is the link to the BSA decision. http://www.bsa.govt.nz/decisions/2004/2004-152.htm It’s pretty funny.

Funny stuff. Supersize Me was so stupid, it almost didn’t even rise to the level of a sham.
On Stern, to get better treatment, I’d keep everything to stacatto sentences and with a more matter of fact delivery. Something like:
“That new Morgan Spurlock show’s a sham.”
“They’d sent me a memo before they even shot it telling me the outcome they were going to get.”
“The producers also told me the show’s purpose was to show America that Muslims were the real victims of 9-11. No kidding.”
Also, if you make any new observation about Sal the Stockbroker’s insanity — for which there are infinite angles — Howard will keep you on.
