There is a lot of talk in the media these days about the death of professional media. Amateur journalists (aka bloggers—hey, maybe even me!) are affecting the news and, the dwindling staffs of professional journalists are decrying the state of reporting and warning us that we better keep buying newspapers if we want real news.

Meanwhile CNN reports: “Texans leaning toward McCain in November.” Texas, birthplace of President Bush, has voted republican every presidential election since 1980. What a surprise that they’re leaning toward McCain this time around.

CNN is a 24 hour news channel with a web site as well. It’s hard to keep coming up with news all the time—poor CNN. But let’s face it, reporting the obvious isn’t helping the dwindling ratings of conventional news outlets.
