You know, when I show that picture to people, they just do not believe it's real.

Here's a laffer for you - this thumbsucking dunce worries about the fate of 'lil people purging elite dictators who want to tell 'lil people what to think.
Web 2.0 Is Reminiscent Of Marx

Without an elite mainstream media, we will lose our memory for things learnt, read, experienced, or heard. The cultural consequences of this are dire, requiring the authoritative voice of at least an Allan Bloom, if not an Oswald Spengler. But here in Silicon Valley, on the brink of the Web 2.0 epoch, there no longer are any Blooms or Spenglers. All we have is the great seduction of citizen media, democratized content and authentic online communities. And weblogs, course. Millions and millions of blogs.

I can't recall the title of the thread or his name.

I scanned your posting history for "cnn" and found this in about 30 seconds.

**"CNN has far fewer viewers than it did in the past, and we feel that our brand was getting lost and diluted," GALLUP claimed in an internal memo, obtained by the DRUDGE REPORT.**

Well, duh! Who would watch them anyway?

I think the conversation went like this: Gallup, invoking the spirit of Cartman from "South Park," said "Screw you, hippies!!!"

I scanned my posting history for about 5 minutes ...

Well, I didn't really "scan" it - I usef the Ctl-F (or equivalent) search function. The first page had a couple hits from your posts in the last hours or so, the second page had none, etc. It doesn't take long when "not reading for content" ;-)

Anyway, not sure if that's the conversation you had in mind, but it seemed to resemble a "how ratings are determined" sort of thing.

I wish I could recall the poster's name from yesterday or the day before who posted that CNN's ratings beat the other cable's.

You misunderstood, they said rantings not ratings.

Does that mean the ridiculously-biased ball headed dude ever present on CNN will not be gleefully reporting anti-Bush poll news every hour and trying to steer elections toward the RATS?
