Biz: CNN and CBS News: Two great tastes that taste great together?

  • CNN The news network has been getting
    killed in the ratings, but still has one
    of the best news-gathering crews in
    the industry (when not distracted by
    fluff). And hey, Anderson Cooper!
  • CBS News The network had to cut back on
    their news staff, but sees CNN as a
    way to stay competitive. They’re
    also getting killed in the ratings – oh
    hey, Anderson Cooper! source

Politics: Pundits try to put the Goldman Sachs saga into words, struggle

  • Can this be easily explained? No, but these pundits are gonna try. Here’s a five-minute long video of TV news types trying to explain what some say is easy to explain but others say is really hard. Either way, it’s hilarious to watch them play with metaphors. source

Politics: Jon Stewart deblusters the blustery language blogs use

  • Well, he took the wind out of our sails. Jon Stewart’s brilliant approach to the way that the blogosphere makes things seem crazier than they actually are is pretty brilliant. Moreso, even, than his multi-part steel-cage match between him and Bill O’Reilly earlier this week. (Both of them are so good at what they do that they pretty much cancel each other out.) We hope MSNBC host Rachel Maddow doesn’t eviscerate us for this post.

Offbeat: Katie Couric is a great singer when she’s auto-tuned

This auto-tuned take on TV news starts off slow but once Katie Couric starts “singing,” it becomes amazingly epic. source
