WHY THE REST OF THE PLANET LAUGHS AT OUR MEDIAThis nonsense
is from one of America's best known, " power", newspapers. Overall, it's not a bad thing for our Secretary of State since it indicates the opinion-making set is so fascinated by her that even her trivialities make news. Commanding that kind of imagery is a form of power that can be used, it's a psychological wedge that hasn't been played well since tales of Henry Kissinger's sex life was interspersed with stories about detente with Russia. On a certain level, I can commend the journalist for thinking out of the box but that level really doesn't belong in a serious newspaper, it belongs in Vanity Fair or Vogue. And by placing it instead in a paper known to be read by our nation's elite we all come off looking like a pack of gibbering morons.
I subscribe to The Economist
and read foreign dailies online because the only national newspaper here that's worth a rusty damn is The Christian Science Monitor
Zenpundit at warp 5, set phasers to " Irritable"......UPDATE
at tdaxp posted on this idiocy as well.
As for the decline in The Economist, I must say that a) an absolute decline still leaves it with a relative advantage and b) The Second Law of Thermodynamics sends everything to hell....
