‘What We Call The News’


An occasional topic on this blog is the slow death of print journalism. It has little to do with religion but ...

I actually started as a print journalist, joining my college paper, The Daily Bruin, because I wanted to be a TV man. And all good TV journalists, I assumed, were good writers. You’re laughing, right? I wasn’t, and I got an internship at KNBC in Los Angeles, which scared me straight, and I haven’t watch the local news since. (I actually hadn’t really watched it before either.)

Above is a righteous parody of “What We Call The News.” It sticks to national and cable news. Just imagine how inane the topics would be if this went local.

You stay classy, Planet Earth
