Journalism Suspended Today

Journalism (i.e. providing the information citizens need to be free and self-governing) has been suspended today for the Michael Jackson memorial. Even CNN Headline news is covering it live, which seems to me 1) redundant, and 2) waaaay off purpose. Check back tomorrow — for more coverage and commentary of the memorial. Keep checking back.

I do not mean to suggest that it not be covered or that it isn’t news or a sort. I mean to assert that what we’re seeing is overkill.

  1. I’m kinda wondering what you mean by “today”.

    I wondered the same thing when I posted it, but I decided to leave it alone 🙂
