Odds & Ends:
–Here’s David Carr on the “British invasion” of the high end of American media. (Why don’t they ever try to take our unpaid internships and crummy starting jobs?)
–Here’s the Times’ attempt to keep with Edward Snowden. What I found remarkable about this story — which was, after all, quite inconclusive — was the combined throw-weight of the team of reporters. In addition to the triple byline, I count seven more bylines in the credit line at the bottom. That’s 10 reporters on three continents, not to mention interns, news aides, editors, photographers, and photo editors. Take that, HuffPo!
–Here’s a Times feature on the antiquated ways of SCOTUS. These are not merely quaint. I believe they are snubbing their noses at all the rest of us, because they can. They are among the most unaccountable holders of power in the country. Perhaps an occasional impeachment (yes, it can be done and has been) would get their attention.
