Rising Tide 3: Journalism Panel


Cartoon broadcast on SNL in 1998. It was broadcast on the east coast, but never appeared on the West Coast broadcast.

The conversation is revolving around Jeffery's homework list. Can't really summarize the conversation. I'll add updates as I can. The video was mentioned in the conversation, so I'll post it to help people find it.

UPDATE- Nagin and "sex appeal" should never be used in the same sentence ever again.

Lee Zurik made a great point that much of NOAH's attention came as a result of Nagin's press conference and antics. He got 10 or so emails after the initial report. He got 300+ emails after Nagin's press conference where he was accused of "hurting the recovery." Who is responsible for loving sexy news, like the "Inside, Nagin's a Hero, Outside He's a Joke", but ignoring the education situation in New Orleans. Is is the responsibility of the journalists or the public?

UPDATE 2-

"I READ THE BLOGS AND I WANT TO SAY MY EYEBROWS ARE REAL."



Oh yeah, and Zurik is saying Saints will win 9 games this year.

UPDATE 3- Great tag line: "Nola.com comments: where you go when you're too racist for talk radio."

Oh man. Thanks for finding and linking to that TV-Funhouse cartoon they referenced. Brilliant! Sorry I didn't get a chance to say hello Saturday though I did chat with C for a bit about things unix and geeky.
