Tidbit journalism

Was in a bit of funk yesterday, it being my Dad's birthday. He would have been 84 years old had he lived. So I didn't get around to bitching about Chuck Todd's lament on the state of journalism. He's all kinds of sad because we're talking about Etch A Sketch instead of serious stuff. You know like the deep meaning of stupid daily polls.

This from a guy whose First Read space at MSNBC is 99% horse race trivia and check out his twitter feed some time. (No I'm not going to link to it.) Believe me when I tell you you won't learn anything about substantive issues there either. Not important, but just so irritiating to hear this guy whine about the media problem, when he's one of prime exemplars of it.

Meanwhile, Jake Tapper tweets: "What America needs is a campaign that resembles LITE-BRITE."

Sadly what we have is a campaign process that resembles nothing so much as Trivial Pursuit.
