We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Venturing Into Right-Wing Wilderness, New York Times Reporters Bravely Watch Fox News All Day

26th March 2017

Read it.

The mainstream media’s obsession with Fox News continues, as the New York Times sends intrepid reporters John Koblin and Nick Corasaniti into the fierce jungle-land of right-wing television to watch an entire day of it. They have escaped back with this dispatch from the front lines: “One Nation, Under Fox: 18 Hours With a Network That Shapes America — Fox News is a singular force, crafting a searing narrative about what’s happening in the world for millions of viewers, including President Trump.”

It wasn’t that awful a report, although one can’t picture the Times undertaking such an expedition during the Obama years, going on a brave quest into the left-wing fever swamps of MSNBC (and CNN, and ABC…).

The horror! The horror!

On the other hand, I wouldn’t mind a job that required me to watch TV news all day and then write an article about it for the New York Times (at New York Prices).
