    But he has so many followers. Besides, where else do you get the news? Not the “left wing controlled lame stream media”.

    daily show and colbert nation. it’s sad when you get more accurate news and news that may not make the media anywhere else, but there it is.

    And of course the NEW YORK TIMES called the election more accurately than anyone else (thanks, Nate Silver), thanks to a reality-based approach…

    First, Hannity is not a newscaster. He’s man running a show that expresses his opinion.

    Second, I doubt if Rupert cares what Hannity says as long as his ratings are good and his show brings in advertising revenue.

    “First, Hannity is not a newscaster. He’s man running a show that expresses his opinion.”
    Alas there are a lot people who come to believe of his show, and others like it, as news.

    In the mid-1970s, we joked that Mike Royko (then at The Chicago Sun-Times) wouldn’t ever quit the paper because what other Chicago paper was there for him to go to – The Chicago Tribune?! Haw, that Republican strong-hold?? The idea was just too ridiculous!
    A few years later, Rupert Murdoch bought the Sun-times. He made all kinds of weird changes. The first day’s issue that came out under his control had the layout and typeface of a typical scandal tabloid. There was even a picture of some guy who won a contest of how many cigars he could cram in his mouth. It was astonishing, and I wish a still had a copy, but I literally spit on it and threw it in the garbage.
    In his columns, Royko kept calling Murdoch, “The Alien.” And a short time later Royko left for the Tribune! Never say never. There were other valuable people who left, too. It was a sad time for Chicago journalism.
    And a few years later Murdoch sold the paper, part of standard procedure in his purely profit oriented media empire. It was the slow beginning of decline for both the Sun-Times and the Tribune, that continues to this day. Scandals and bankruptcies have followed, new managements, and reorganizations. The Internet will eventually eliminate print editions of both papers — you watch.
    The output of journalism is getting away from paper that you can hold in your hand, from which you clip articles to put on the bulletin board. Are electronic media secure and permanent enough, free from 1984-type revisions, to guarantee our access to free information? I fear not. But it’s the way things will be.
    And besides, I’d surely feel strange taking a computer into the bathroom with me.

    It’s probably just me, then.
    But a newspaper is much more versatile in an emergency, know what I mean — unless there’s an app for that?!

    I can occasionally stomach a bit of Shepherd Smith, not too bad. But most of Rupert’s runts are too disgusting to listen to for more than a couple minutes of disgusting lies, same for Limbaugh. The same goes for his print “journalists” .

    It is important to note that Rupert is from Australia, not America, his English holdings are likewise reflective of his disgust for anything but the worst elements of the “plutocracy”.

    BTW, not ALL “plutocrats” are the bad, mad, and evil folks , painted with a bit too broad a brush. But! Those who see only their personal rise and profit as the “be all and end all” are a danger to the world, whether with respect to climate change, “border wars”, or profiteering from the deaths, or misery, of others.

    Rupert and “family” are in that latter group, and he makes William Randolph Hearst seem a saint.

    Yes, iPad is great in the bathroom. The laptop was too bulky, too slow to start up, too heavy, etc.

    The app you may want is one where it reminds you to purchase more rolls of paper so you don’t run out.

    Funny, gricks. Glad I wasn’t drinking coffee or anything.

    “I always remember what my first journalism teacher, in our initial class asked us, ‘What is the purpose of a newspaper?’ He corrected us when many of us replied with idealistic platitudes: ‘The business of a newspaper is to make money.’”

    Either you’re telling it wrong or your teacher did.

    The “purpose” of a professional enterprise and the “business” of it are separate things. The “purpose” of a hospital is to heal. The “purpose” of a university is to educate. The “purpose” of a theater company is to entertain. The “business” of all these things is to make money, or at least to sustain themselves. The “purpose” of a newspaper is to provide news to the population, and (to a greater or lesser extent) to shape public opinion.
