My new post at David Horowitz’s NewsReal blog looks at ABC’s decision to fire an astonishing 25% of its news division — and how old fashioned Big 3 newscasts compare in popularity with talk radio.
Also, from Mediaite:
Beck had his finger on the zeitgeist — in this case a fearful and frustrated fringe — that has since overwhelmed the country long before anyone else, and proceeded to provide it with an utterly entertaining mainstream voice — if chalkboards and Mao dolls can be considered mainstream! — much to the amazement, and let’s be honest, the enjoyment of a lot of people. What these recent ratings make me wonder is if that ride is over. And if so, why.
