Modern-day journalism brilliantly explained…

Most of my regular readers know that Danah and I own a weekly newspaper, called The Oak Ridge Observer.

It’s a paper I started in 2004 — No, I’m not being Mr. Take All The Credit; this was Pre-Danah timeperiod, or PD — and  Danah and I still spend too much time working at.

Besides the newspaper we run, journalism is also my major.

All of which brings me to my point. The article below brilliantly explains modern-day journalism …

Let Me Explain Why Miley Cyrus’ VMA Performance Was Our Top Story This Morning.

Keep the faith,

Stan R. Mitchell

Oak Ridge, Tenn.

P.S. You should seriously consider buying this book as it has absolutely changed my life. It’s about $20, but is worth about $10,000, in my opinion.

  1. I know it’s The Onion, but it sounded pretty spot-on to me.

    Thanks for at least not rerunning the video. Ugh.

    Keep up the good work. I relish all that you write, even if I don’t always agree with it. Thanks to your comments I did not write a (redundant) letter to the editor about Council’s idiot member, summoning her rant as “grandstanding.” Nancy
