“Dead Air”

This is about a Slate post; I commented on the site as well.

The article was cleverly titled, since it fitted not only the subject but the article itself.  It also shows what the usual columnist expects of news, the major thing involved evidently being predigestion.  And complaining about Andy Rooney’s relevance is like complaining about lack of privacy in a public bathroom; it simply goes with the territory–look at John Dvorak over at PC Mag.

We’ve come to an age where we’ve–perhaps irreparably–confused news with its presentation.  Then again, of course, think of the millions of people in this country who think the president is elected by popular vote.
