Death, Dearth & Derp Of The Media

Poor ol' Republican consultant John Feehery thinks it's still 2005, gets a rude surprise:
I was meeting with some D.C. press secretaries about a complicated legislative issue when it became clear to me that everything has changed since I left Capitol Hill in 2005.

We were talking about strategies to get our messages out back home. I asked about placing op-eds and letters to the editor in the local newspapers and talking to the reporters who cover the delegation about our issue.

There are no papers back home and there are no reporters who cover our delegation, the press people responded.

Where do people get their information about Washington, I asked?

Fox News, they replied.
File under "No shit, Sherlock!" & "Have you been living under a rock for the last 10 yrs.?"

It's time for a hostile takeover of Newscorp, the owner of Fox news, by an insurgent hedge fund. Somewhere out there, assuredly there must be a hedge fund with amoral compass and some billions to spare. Maybe they can buy the 6.6 percent share owned by an Arab prince.

Oh wait.

Yours crankily,
