Unfilter this

kent.jpgA few years ago, Might Magazine wondered on its cover if all local news was actually being broadcast from hell. Once again, Eggers and his merry band of pranksters were dead-on but suffered from being too far ahead of the curve.
In today’s New York Times, Elisabeth Bumiller tells us that President Bush is bypassing those biased White House press pool reporters in favor of some non-judgmental, down-to-earth interviews with local newsmen and women. Five newsmen and women, back-to-back (junket-style), apparently. Said the President:
There’s a sense that people in America aren’t getting the truth…I’m mindful of the filter through which some news travels, and sometimes you have to go over the heads of the filter and speak directly to the people.
Right on, Mr. President! We the people, don’t like our news filtered for us by opinionated people, do we? Hell, no! I mean, what kind of an ignorant fool would want their news filtered for them? Not us, that’s for sure!
