Tomgram: Jay Rosen, Mindlessness in the Media, Campaign 2008

tomdispatch.com — Let's see. They were wrong on Hillary Clinton, essentially nominating her for the presidency months before a primary was held. In Iowa, they were wrong on Mike Huckabee and Barack Obama, John Edwards and Clinton (again). In New Hampshire, wrong on Obama, Clinton (yet again), and -- at least...

chrisamico.newsblur.com — Paul Beaty / AP When I was around 10 years old, my father confronted a young man who was said to be "crazy." The young man was always too quick to want to fight. A foul in a game of 21 was an insult to his honor.

Tone poem for the “leave it there” press

medium.com — This person - a political journalist: intelligent, informed - appears on my TV screen regularly during those roundtables where pundits try to dissect the news: Over at the 'Meet the Press' site, where NBC's Chuck Todd holds forth, this question was recently asked: Why the selective political outrage?

Tone Poem for the 'Leave It There' Press

huffingtonpost.com — When journalists try to distance themselves from our hyper-polarized politics something has to be said. Here is my little attempt to say it. This person -- a political journalist: intelligent, informed -- appears on my TV screen regularly during those roundtables where pundits try to dissect the news: Over at the 'Meet the Press' site, where NBC's Chuck Todd holds forth, this question was recently asked: Why the selective political outrage?

Tech Is Eating Media.

medium.com — Tech Is Eating Media. Now What? is a good question. I spend a lot of time on it myself. John Herrman, co-editor of the Awl, has been on this story for years, and also "in" it because the Awl is a venture on the same seas, a publishing try that has to cope with tech.

chrisamico.newsblur.com — And then I tasted it. I immediately tasted the garlic-sharp, bracing, freshly grated garlic is hard to miss-but it was kind of good. It worked alright, if you don't mind garlic, that is. But I'll be bringing this Presidential guacamole to my friend's 4th of July potluck tomorrow, to put it to the real test: the people.

Trump, comb-over justice and Politico's Dylan Byers

storify.com — The problem starts here. Dylan Byers thinks I'm saying what he expects people to say: "Why are you covering Trump? He's an ass and a clown and he can't win." But that was not my observation. My observation was: by their own rules - the horse race game they freely decide to play - they have no choice.

@RobL777 Everyone involved agrees with you. Win, win, win. That's their thinking. Mine: this shows how thin PBS's identity is in TV news.

@DickeyFuller My observation was about fuzzy definition at PBS. I am not in the dark about why CNN finds cheap programming to its liking.

Feb 06, 2016

@BrettZongker Q. Why is a debate put on by public broadcasting so similar to the commercial product that it fits seamlessly into CNN's flow?

Feb 06, 2016

@HankSilverberg @c_cgottlieb True about reach. My point: a debate put on by public broadcasting is no different from the commercial product.

Feb 06, 2016

@DickeyFuller What does that have to do with my observation?

Feb 06, 2016

The fact that a PBS debate can also be a CNN debate money.cnn.com/2016/02/04/med… shows how little definition there is to PBS. Little, as in none.

@chrisFnicholson Maybe there are different kinds of savvy: stupid and commodified like Dick Morris, informed and seductive in other settings
