Maybe that will finally relieve the need to keep reminding people of Gell-Mann Amnesia.  But probably not.

Washington, DC (AP) - Those clowns in Washington did it again. What a bunch of clowns.

In the newsroom in which I worked, we had five people putting the paper to bed.

How does it keep up with the news like that?

I feel sad for people like Don Bolles, less sad for editors, and sheer disgust for media owners. Telling lies and suppressing the truth isn't jounalism. And those things certainly haven't died with The Rocky Mountain News and other decent newspapers.

Under the leadership of president, publisher and editor John Temple, the Rocky Mountain News had won four Pulitzers in less than 9 years.

Papers like that shouldn't have been killed off by and Twitter.

Amundson says if the prediction comes true it could be a benefit, because it might free up reporters to work on more important stories.

Always love this reasoning. Ok it might be true for small %, but the rest will be freed up to pursue other opportunities of employment.

Sixteen years is all I need. Been doing it for 31.

Dear Associated Press: "Over" does NOT equal "more than." Also, "back yard" is a noun, "backyard" is an adjective.

It's always been that way..

A popular page on home page was my list of "journalisms". Cases where the press take liberty with grammar and common sense. I stopped after a while. It was like shooting ducks in a barrel. With a shotgun.

this type of software is not just making journalists unemployed, but also  securities research analysts

and with that, another path for advancement to the upper classes disappears....
