I am watching CNN’s Glen Beck slam the New York times on the McCain story. During the news segment he interviewed some guy who used to be the spokesman for US Congress representatives who said the New York Times had become like bloggers – “who sit in their basement on a dial-up line and spread rumors.”
Is this really news? Is this what people want to hear at 7pm from a TV news organization? What does this tell us about how people consume news and how they make decisions in this country?
