Seth Godin wrote on Seth’s Blog an article about "The problem with cable news thinking". I am pleased that he doesn’t single out one side or the other in his commentary, as all political persuasions seem to be guilty of it.
It should come as no shock to you that I consider most of the stuff that passes for “news” these days is more tripe than anything else. Even the “commentary” is either shallow thinking or shouting matches.
Godin compares the traits he writes about to company board meetings, but, you know, I have to wonder how many churches, both in and out of COG circles, reflect these traits as well.
