Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Where Is Ted Turner When You Need Him?

I always thought it was sad that Ted Turner sold the Braves.  I guess I should be sad he sold CNN.

It's tough to say whether CNN has a responsibility to inform or simply to pander.  I suppose if you want to be informed there is PBS and NPR.  Hell, there's BBC America.  If you want your news to have POV, you have Fox and MSNBC.

CNN just doesn't make sense anymore so now they are, as the writer above puts it, a clone of Entertainment Tonight with more murder trials.
