Off the Media: ‘Barely A Buttock Would Leave The Leather’

This week, we leave you with our favorite quotes from our favorite New York-based meta media NPR radio show:

Guest co-host Mike Pesca, in reference to the State of the Union address: “It seems to me to be an element of kabuki, or actually it’s a lot like the Roman Catholic mass — a lot of up-down, up-down. I think that if there were no cameras there, you know, barely a buttock would leave the leather.”

Emily Bazelon of Slate saying why she could go on an AIPAC-funded junket to Israel. Her answer’s logic sure confuses us: “There’s no way that this isn’t a problematic thing to do, which isn’t to say that we shouldn’t have done it. I mean, I don’t regret that I went. But I completely see the argument that it’s troubling and creates these ambiguities and creates questions about our objectivity in covering the region.”
