Greta, tactless but not far off the truth

- +

US lawyer and Fox News presenter Greta Van Susteren did not show tact. Her insults denigrating Thailand as a whole, slinging mud at the entire country, were over the top. But then, they were meant to be. How else does one generate publicity? 

She’s a lawyer and a media personality. Of course she knows how to tug and pull. In tugging and pulling, she’s quite successful. She’s good at it, this tugging and pulling thing. 

Personally, I don’t mind. It is rather entertaining, gratifying in a way, to be tugged and pulled. But underneath the tawdry theatrics, she isn’t far off.
