    yelling back at broadcast media does no good.

    so using the John and Ken show voting guide was a bad idea?

    But you try telling that to all the fucking NPR-heads who latched onto me during my brief tenure as a public radio reporter. They won’t hear it, they’re even worse than the Fox-clones at this point. “I was listening to this commentator on Marketplace and he said.. what do you mean fuck all those guys? Why are you so negative about this great news source America has?” Yadda yadda yadda. No wonder I never leave the house now.

    Please, somebody tell Derek! Seriously and not j/k, he said “I am going to call ‘Handel on the Law’ before I sign anything!” when we were discussing visitation papers.

    Annoying phenomenon (to which I’m not immune), for sure. But let’s call a spade a Clinton…The recycling, reposting, and regurgitating of the same news item is a side-effect of dying traditional media. Let’s remember that the embarrassing shrinkage that professional–as opposed to citizen–journalism has experienced over the past 10-odd years has everything to do with media consolidation, which, like NAFTA, was a disease we caught before Dubya. Respectfully posit that religion may in fact be worser! In conclusion, Rachel Maddow is the best thing to happen to news, ever. She reminds me of how it used to feel to watch 60 Minutes and 20/20, and listen to All Things Considered, before they became insipid, shiny-flashy, and soupy, respectively. Speaking of devastatingly smart and snarky, that reminds me: why don’t I read more Maureen Dowd?
