The New Column is Up

I've written a piece on the state of journalism in the United States. Give it a read at CounterBias and let me know what you think.

Today is what we call a "slow news day" in the world of journalism. At least as far as my own brand of muckwracking goes. Not surprisingly, the right-wing message boards are buying the Swift Boat Liars Against Kerry fairy tale as truth handed down by God. There's a thread at Conservative Underground. They also fall for Drudge rumors, again, apparently, due to a lack of independent thought. See, conservatives don't use their brains for things like logical reasoning. That's why Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Matt Drudge are so popular. They do the thinking for the confused conservative, telling them how to feel and what to think, and the right-wing robots dutifully parrot what they've been told. Of course none of them stop to analyze the data they've been given to see if it's factual. Because they're stupid.

Actually, there is a bit of news that's worth repeating. It's about the Olympic mascots and how everyone hates them. Enjoy.
