The failure of the news media

No, this isn't a piece complaining about the foul fiends of the liberal media. This is a piece complaining about the foul fiends of the superficial media. Recently, the Washington Post published an article about the pressing issue of the day- Hillary Clinton's cleavage. Not joking, unfortunately. The link is here if you don't believe me. Thanks, by the way, to Brendan Nyhan's blog for this story--in my judgement the best blog out there. Also, there was recently a column by Robert Samuelson on another important story- the decline of the comma. These ridiculous "stories" would be funny if it wasn't for the fact that serious issues, e.g. Darfur, are not getting talked about
