TV SoundOff: Sunday Talking Heads

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 01.24.2014 | Politics

Today is going to be weird because last night some sort of complicated diplomatic arrangement with Iran was reached in Geneva, Switzerland and so we awake today in a world in which Sunday's simpletons will break it down and probably Bill Kristol weeps because what about bombing Iran for sport? It will be a weird day, watching people with a mostly flash-card education grapple with a serious thing that happened with such very little time to spare. (Maybe that's why there's no "Meet The Press" today? Their brains got hurted?)

The Jobs Crisis: It May Not Be "Breaking News," But It's Definitely "Broken News"

Arianna Huffington | Posted 06.16.2013 | Media
Arianna Huffington

BREAKING! This just in: the economy is terrible and the country is suffering its worst jobs crisis since the Depression... developing... Of course, this isn't actually breaking news, it's aching news -- and before the tragic bombings in Boston, the most important story going on. But you wouldn't have known that if you'd been listening to the media, where the economy and the long-term jobs disaster that's been enveloping the country for five years goes virtually unmentioned. Only 88,000 new jobs were produced last month. And for the long-term unemployed, the situation is verging on hopeless. It's hard to imagine our jobs disaster will get the attention -- and the solutions -- it deserves if our media doesn't think it's a story worth telling. Perhaps we need to come up with an alternate term to the breathless "BREAKING" tag. How about "BROKEN"?

Chris Wallace is going to be talking about the Pentagon dropping the ban on women in combat (as a formal distinction) with retired Air Force colonel Martha McSally and retired Army Lieutenant General Jerry Boykin. Then Senators Dick Durbin and Bob Corker will yell at each other. Then there will be a panel. Then the earth keeps turning.
