Mailvox: the onanistic circle

RM writes: What has truly becoming stunning about the media is the way news shows interview other news people instead of the news makers and just sit there and confirm each others’ bias.

Or better yet, smugly affirm each other’s notions, from their position of objective Olympian majesty. This is one reason why I have zero interest in pursuing appearances on the news shows. The idea of subjecting myself to discussions featuring the length of a fruit fly’s life cycle and the ntellectual depth of a mosquito-breeding swamp puddle makes me shiver. I simply have no any interest in a medium where “I disagree with your facts” is considered an effective rebuttal.

News that purports to be entertainment is neither.
