ESPN isn’t the only entity that’s moved away from hard news in favor of ratings-driven celebrity worship, but since it’s what most guys watch, it sucks to see the mindless, speculative drivel it’s become. What makes the situation especially compelling is that ESPN pays to air most of the content that it then reports on. Deadspin did a great job rehashing the problems and how they came about.

All the Nips That’s Fit To Print

I know that the print industry has been hit hard, but if this is any indication about where it’s going, newspapers may not be completely dead. The New York Times published the above picture in an article about yoga last week. Look at the chick on the top right. It’s a nipple! There was a nipple in the Times. How has nobody noticed this? Now I know I’m a trendsetter but I didn’t think the newspaper of record would be copying The Suite after only a year. I figured it’d take at least a year and a half. What’s next? A Dayyyyyyyyyyyyuuuuuuuuuuuuum Girl on every page? You’d definitely have a lot more people reading the paper and being informed about current events. This is exactly what the country needs. I’d read Larry Flint’s Wall St. Journal.
