Color me prescient. And I quote: “I’m killing my Twitter account. I just don’t get the point.”
Anyway, while people are putting Twitter to good use in getting news out of Iran, our vaunted media is sitting on its 90-year-old ass interviewing American Idol contestants and “then, SPEIDI joins Larry to talk about ‘I’m a Celebrity…’ Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag Pratt on all things reality-show related Were they really tortured while filming in the Costa Rican jungle?? We’ll find out the truth and all the behing-the-scenes details you won’t want to miss!” WTF????
Fox isn’t any better…worrying about whether or not David Letterman really, really means it when he says he’s sorry for making fun of Sarah Palin. I kid you not. That’s the top story.
The thing is, I recall sitting on the edge of my seat during Tienanmen Square. I watched that kid stand in front of the tank on live TV…because someone was actually covering the fricking story!
Iran is exploding, and the best we can do is tweet. No offense to Twitter, but this is just sad.
