Further Outrage at the Mainstream Media
I love the New Yorker. I have a subscription. They employ Seymour Hersh. What more could you ask for?
But like so much of the Mainstream Media these days, they are slipping into irrelevance.
Each week the magazine has a Caption Contest. They publish a captionless cartoon and invite readers to submit captions for it. I've done this twice and haven't even won once!
Okay, so this is America. Free speech and all that. But there comes a time when you have to speak truth to the media power elite. Here is the most recent cartoon for which I submitted a caption, along with my caption:
OK, so they have genius IQs, but they don't know much about how
the world works.
Comedy gold. This is funny with a capital "F". Oh, wait, so I guess that would be "Funny" then.
"Unfortunately, at this age they don't carry much pocket change."
"I told you those humane traps never really work."
Probably they didn't pick me because I have a blog. They are afraid of me. I threaten them. I am the brave new world of online Comedy Gold.
No wonder the Republic is in peril.
