dogs, cosmic irony, and the New Yorker


For anyone who read my last post. How strange is this? A cartoon from The New Yorker Cartoon Bank.

PS. Maxi Saver Dollar Theater is running Crash and Hustle and Flow, both got positive reviews from Denby.

Ugh how offensive. ;) People at the New Yorker are just jealous that we bloggers can do their job just as well as--or even better than--them. Look how threatened they are.

AND THEY SHOULD BE. Haha. Love the dogs though. So cute.

Yeah. It is an offensive cartoon. And I think you're right, anyone can and SHOULD do the kind of literary, art, cultural criticisms the NYer does, and can do them a lot better and with more relevance. That's kind of the point of attacking poor Mr. Denby.

The news is a little different, and I dwell on it less here. Seymour Hersh and Mark Danner are standouts in the mainstream media for the kind of investigations they are doing, and I suspect it takes a lot of funds and connections to get the info they do. Not that blogging doesn't provide good insights and perspectives on major world events, it does . . . but Hersh and Danner have a really important role to play too.

Absolutely. Gathering and presenting news is extremely vital...as long as the bias isn't extreme and then that extreme bias sold as "objective". (Fox "News" being "Fair & Balanced", anyone?? UGH!).
