...The One-Minute Pundit

Yesterday LALA moaned that there were too many "antiheroes" on television. Today it whines there should be more female grossout comedies. This puts us in mind of how most newsrags are "edited" -- for spelling, mostly, minimally for grammar, more minimally for facts. Whether a piece is fair matters not; worse it matters not if a piece might wrongly anger the reader. Once editors had tantrums. Now they let the readers have them. In the luxury news suites the Lou Grants get along with their writers nicely, in part because you don't yell at subordinates anymore no matter how badly they do. This piece of garbage wouldn't have insulted the reader if an editor cared. As we said yesterday, LALA should fire more of its staff -- including some editors.
