I can has TV webbmasstr Jowb?
I'm not sure what disturbs me more about the state of mass media in these troubled times.
Is it the fixation on bread and circuses, like pointless audience polls (and please don't ask me about the fascination with Kim Kardashian)? Or is it the unrelenting daily confirmation that many members of the Fourth Estate seemingly teeter on the razor's edge of functional illiteracy?
Sorry, make that Forth e-State. Foreth Eestayte? Fowrthe Estayt?
I would say "bring on the new Dark Ages" . . . but I suspect they're already here.
Or is that "hear"?
