Yeah, we’re in a picture sort of mood this morning. We should be back to normal soon.

    Perfect timing — I was just boggling last night when CNN started showing and reading blog entries about the hurricane.

    Why does this unnerve me so? I am all for citizen journalism, but for some reason, seeing CNN display and read repetitive entries on how the wind from Katrina was strong enough to crack windows, etc, entries which didn’t contribue any new information to the preceding “news” report … I dunno. I guess I am not yet inured to infotainment being so boldly out of the closet.

    I think the move has been so subtle, we all missed the moment when journalism as we know it ceased to exist. Which is really kind of sad because I miss the day of hard-hitting questions and getting to the root of issues.

    Though now that I think back, it’s possible those days were a collective hallucination. Must ponder this.
