Summing Up the Corporate Media in One Sentence

Howie Kurtz on Sunday morning: "It's hard for reporters on the ground to figure out the central question in Iran -- whether the election actually was rigged or not. And now, let's talk about Sarah Palin versus David Letterman!"

Yes, I realize Howie's job is in theory to report on reporting. His entire raison d'etre is to gaze at media navels on the rare occasions when the owners of the navels in question are busy looking at something else.

It's still pathetic. And it highlights what the corporate media's priorities are.
