Jonah Goldberg: Cronkite ‘Overrated’ and Breitbart ‘a Friend’

s-JONAH-GOLDBERG-large.jpg
Momma’s boy Jonah Goldberg is touting the new “journalism” of his buddy Andrew Breitbart in his latest column. Since last week, Breitbart‘s name has become a synonym for bullshit cloaked as journalism (like “an OJ” means “a stabbing” or an anti-gay Republican means “gay”). In order to make the point about how lopsided malicious propaganda is “progress,” Goldberg tries to to slay Walter Cronkite’s legacy. Which is like saying a Megan Fox bearded drag queen is the best thing to ever happen to acting because Maryl Streep isn’t all that great.

Column is here.

    Life & Style To Produce 1 Issue Without the Gosselins

    The press release reads like an Onion headline, “Life & Style Weekly will be ignoring Jon and Kate Gosselin, announcing a completely GOSSELIN-FREE issue, on newsstands now.” What a weirdly evocative gimmick, sort of like the Megan Fox-ban day. With so much being said about the TLC stars and their marriage, affairs, and subsequent seasons of their show (who is suing whom, will Gosselin ever stop wearing Ed Hardy shirts, etc.), this fundamental family has become white noise in of pop culture. But producing a Gosselin-free issue of any tabloid magazine – while at the same time announcing it in bold letters on the front of the magazine – a little contradictory? You can’t produce a Gosselin-free issue without trumpeting it as such?

    Is Twitter Affecting the Box Office?

    Is being able to instantly syndicate an opinion on a film to thousands of your closest friends affecting the opening weekend of less-than-great films?

    Pshaw.

    Michael Sragow at the Baltimore Sun writes:

    This summer, movies such as “Bruno” and ” G.I. Joe” have had unexpected tumbles at the box office – just within their opening weekends – while “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” survived blistering critical reaction to become a blockbuster.

    Box-office watchers say the dramatic swings may be caused by Twitter and other social networking sites that can blast instant raves – or pans – to hundreds of people just minutes after the credits roll.

    Later in the article Gregg Kilday of the Hollywood Reporter is quoted:

    “Even if you don’t have Twitter, a lot of people, especially kids, have long had the ability to text each other, sometimes from within the theater,” he says. “And for a lot of the mass-market movies, the potential audience will go whether friends tell them they’re good or not.”

    Yeah but no one wants to see a panned Twitter trending topic. Unless it sucks but there are robots who turn into cars and Megan Fox is running in slo mo apparently…
