Food for Thought

Very interesting article in the Monday Tyee Headlines today, regarding new media. Go read: Is The Future of Journalism Goop? As a person with a vested interest in the written word, I found it a fascinating read. Well-written, which is always a plus.

  1. I reject that “humans are programmed to pay attention to powerful people”. I accept that most people have been brainwashed by too many hours of television in general, and commercials specifically. I feel sorry for the people who hang on GOOP’s every word the same way I feel sorry for people who set their Tivo’s to record Bachelor. Yeah, I am aware I am in the minority here, but I refuse to lower myself, no matter how may eyeballs look at my work. There are more important things going on in the world than the best lipstick and trendiest shaped accent pillow. Makes me want to light my hair on fire!

  2. Well stated, Terri!
