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.

@GrayConnolly Again: they ARE handling it, they ARE coping, they keep right at it. That takes fortitude. You want to shut them up too. Why?

Feb 05, 2016

@GrayConnolly So Trump can say what he likes about them, but they should shut up and take it so that they SOUND to you like they're coping?

Feb 05, 2016

@GrayConnolly Unclear what you mean. They're describing what it's like. They're not quitting, backing down or letting Trump drive them away.
