What? No words of wisdom about the media getting tired of the oil spill yet still ignoring Nashville? How about the lack of coverage for the Thai civil war?

Not even a peep about hurricane predictions?

None of that is "new."

"Nothing new this week" is Drew-speak for "I got a mother of a hangover and the glow from my monitor is making me feel the need to puke".

It's an efficient dialect.

It's not really a civil war at the moment, but it's definitely got the potential to become one if talks keep falling through and enough people lose hope that there are alternatives for resolving the conflict. Most Thai comments online seem to express a strong desire to avoid war, but that's not always enough.

I have seen a fair bit of coverage online of the protests. I haven't watched cable news in a couple of weeks so I don't know how they're doing, though Fark itself has been really lacking on links (and the comments are mostly Star Trek references)

The Megan Fox is a classic but the Tiger one is a great spin as well

Nothing new this week?
So all the voting opportunities are only due to a lot of greenlit voting-enhanced articles.
Or maybe it's a celebration of primary voting week.
