The brain damaged New Yorker (the once great, venerable, brilliantly written instittution turned lefty terror enabling tool) has an nterview with Orianna Fallaci here. It is unworthy of Fallaci and her work, and while Maragret Talbot tempered her contempt, Fallaci's much needed message was marginalized and dishonestly portrayed. I hated it. Talbot's pull quotes from Fallaci's work were the ones that sounded worst out of context. It kicks off with
“Yesterday, I was hysterical,” the Italian journalist and novelist Oriana Fallaci said. She was telling me a story about a local dog owner and the liberties he’d allowed his animal to take in front of Fallaci’s town house, on the Upper East Side. Big mistake. “I no longer have the energy to get really angry, like I used to,” she added. It called to mind what the journalist Robert Scheer said about Fallaci after interviewing her for Playboy, in 1981: “For the first time in my life, I found myself feeling sorry for the likes of Khomeini, Qaddafi, the Shah of Iran, and Kissinger—all of whom had been the objects of her wrath—the people she described as interviewing ‘with a thousand feelings of rage.’ ”
So you get the flavuh of how they paint her.
I reqeusted an intervew with Fallaci months ago but I am not ginormous enough. But thes mainstream media pieces do Fallaci little good to advance the cause of exposing Islam and the gravity their intentions.
