How true!!

This is from my local paper. It was on the OpEd page yesterday.
Pretty much sums up the suck-ass state of affairs of the lame stream media today.
Everything from Fox "News" to CNN and all the rest.
Thank the Lord for the Internets.

heh, so did good ol' Mike Douglas.. :)

Good Night, Good Luck was a great movie, though. Very well done.

Yup, they sure have come a long way. Want to try something really scary? Imagine how banal and dumbed down the "media" will be a few years from now. Maybe we'll be looking back at the "news" coverage of 2006 and refer to it as the good old days.

I'd really rather not think about it.
But, it goes well with our consumer and celebrity-obsessed culture right now..

Didn't Murrow interview Liberace because he had to? I understood that he had to do "soft" pieces as sort of a trade-off for the pieces he wanted to be.

Though without the political bent, don't forget Quiz Show as another fine lesson in culture and media.
