This just in from a reader who was less than pleased with our Monday feature on 10 orangutans that look like NBC “Meet the Press” host David Gregory. In fact, the professor is “so displeased.”


Subject line: Gregory and orangutans – disgraceful and unhelpful

“As a professor of Political Science I find little most distasteful and unhelpful than the rise of the sarcastic and pompous quasi-comical leftist shows like The Daily Show and the Colbert Report. I so am so displeased with them because college students increasingly think they are getting real news there. I appreciate the need to combat satire with satire: satire can be such a powerful weapon. But attacking someone’s physical appearance is just demeaning and wrong.”
