Why are people bailing on newspapers? The articles are too long. This, right here. How could I have been so blind. It’s not that newspapers purée everything, that Bush’s honeymoon period lasted his entire two terms, that newspapers are corporatism’s biggest cheerleaders ... it’s that the portions are too large. There have been many thoughtful (long) articles written over the last few years about the many reasons newspapers are tanking. This is the opposite. Thank god it’s short, I was getting exhausted reading it. Where’s my rattle? I want my blankie. Where is my blankie. Blankie.
