More proof the MSM is undeniably stupid

Bush's 2004 win has been credited to the support he got from Conservative Christians. The group the MSM not so affectionately dub, the “Religious Right”. In a rush to cash in on this “newly discovered” demographic, the networks have been trying to come up with television programs they think would appeal to religious Conservatives. But, since the MSM are mostly leftist atheists/agnostics with tightly closed minds, they keep producing flop after flop.

First there was Revelations, a spooky short run series that played even looser with end-time prophecies that the old Omen series did. Since to the MSM, the religious are nothing but a bunch of superstition buffoons, they figured a show that focused on superstitious mumbo-jumbo would appeal to them. That's like claiming a show about watermelons would appeal to Black people. It's just as offensive.

But apparently their bigotry and closed mindedness has only just begun.

The NBC network, eager for new hits to reverse a ratings slump, said on Friday it has given a mid-season 2005-06 commitment to a new drama titled "The Book of Daniel," depicting Christ as a contemporary confidant to a pill-popping priest.

The series stars Aidan Quinn ("Legends of the Fall") as conflicted Episcopal minister and family man, the Rev. Daniel Webster, and Oscar-winner Ellen Burstyn as his bishop.

The character of Jesus is portrayed by relative newcomer Garret Dillahunt, a regular on HBO's gritty, Emmy-nominated western "Deadwood." He played the man who murdered Wild Bill Hickok.

"Book of Daniel" was one of several high-profile projects NBC touted to advertisers at a special presentation in March, but it was left off the upcoming fall schedule unveiled by the General Electric Co.-owned network in May.

Proverbs 26:11 seem to fit this to a tee:

As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.
