I’m sure we’ve all seen THIS

How could we not? Hour after hour given over to a story whose simple truth was THIS

That’s because we live in a “Mainstream Media” culture where PICTURES trump everything. Even when the meaning of said pictures are — to say the least — highly questionable.

Tons simpler to aim the camera at this crap than deal with Health Care, Afganistan, Unemployment, et. al.

That’s because it’s all tuend into our lust for spectacle — as explicated in excruciating detail by the the great Billy Wilder

In this case, of course, another wise “Media Maven” of the past — Maurine Watkins — plays a significant touchstone role. The author of Chicago would have smelled the shit a mile away.

Isn’t that right Liza?
