TV News

Cutting the Cord (on News, at Least)

I was amused, in that "that's funny and really, really not funny at all" sense, to read the other day that television news outfits have decided to actually try and wait for things to happen before announcing them during tonight's Presidential Election coverage. You'd think that "reporting what's happening" is a basic part of journalism, but the rush to become all-encompassing and beat everyone else to the big story - leaving journalism somewhat behind - is just another sign that it might be time to rethink television news altogether.
