Media Bias

Todd Zywicki at The Volokh Conspiracy (two links to them in one day. No doubt their traffic will increase by .000000000000000001% thanks to me!) makes a good point about the modern American media, whether you are talking about left wing bias, right wing bias, or clown wing bias:
"Something that doesn't happen every day--when I signed in at CNN yesterday to be on Lou Dobbs's program (Lou wasn't there though), the signature right above mine was Jose Canseco. And the lead-in story to my segment was Robert Blake's acquittal.

Kind of puts it all into perspective."

You know, our media is so damn shallow, and really, aren't their more important issues than Robert Freaking Blake or the ponderings and panderings of Jose Canseco? I disagree with Mr. Zywicki a whole lot, but damn if he doesn't have a point, eh? Dumbing down America, indeed.
