Comments on: Romney, Sully, Steve Jobs and The Boss Steven Brill Tue, 19 Aug 2014 18:30:28 +0000 hourly 1 By: Eideard Wed, 23 Nov 2011 12:43:48 +0000 Cripes. Already one of the first comments is a “fair and balanced” whine.

Do the current generation of conservative poseurs finally realize the educated world considers their allegiance to lousy standards and corrupt practices to be a fault – and they hope it will be overlooked by “balance”?

Facts are not political, they are not balanced. The results of greed and grasping aren’t restricted to a balance sheet clutched by an invisible CPA in the sky.


Go for it, Brill. This piece reads like you resent the distorted craft that passes for journalism, nowadays – distorted by investors and owners who consider a once-principled occupation to be nothing more than an addition to their entertainment portfolio.

Living up to the standards of a leading journalism school may not get you an easy job at MTV – but, long range, you get to look at yourself in the mirror in the morning with that historic hungry smile because you hope to be the first to uncover a bit of truth, today – instead of planking your butt before a computer and rewriting PR releases.

Yankee seats? Breaking our hearts.

This issue seems different from, let’s say, an Orthodox Jewish non-work on Sabbath law, because there are always Jewish faith emergency loopholes. Non-work is non-material. A tithe is matrial and is also different from a charitable donation.
