The Japanese government prepares to shoot down the North Korean ballistic projectile if it looks like it will fall on Japanese territory, and that’s a “threat to shoot down N. Korean satellite”? Since when has the C in CNN stood for “commie”? Who do they think they are, BBC?
Kidding. In fact, the article itself is pretty tame—again, reminding us of BBC.
The quest for online eyeballs can be pretty pathetic, though. For example, yesterday’s CNN segment on its reporter stalking AIG employees in London (after a NYT op-ed had already effectively eviscerated the mainstream media, CEO Edward Liddy and everybody in Washington including Obama) was Samantha Bee on The Daily Show without the laughs. If I am seeing the future of the media, it looks a lot like Geraldo.
