Yesterday, we were treated to the Media’s wall-to-wall coverage of Weiner’s (covered) weiner. This was a direct result of the Good Congressmen ‘fessing up about his twittered (covered) weiner shot sprung on assorted females in the Twitterverse. Needless to say the ground was fertile for weiner jokes.
For example, I was sort of hoping that the crack investigative team of Johnson & Wang would have been the pair to break the story from undercover of Weiner’s vehement and inflated denials. Sadly, I was let down in this.
Now that I’ve gotten THAT out of my system, I do want to say that I felt let down by the Media in general and that so much attention was paid to the idiocy of one man’s (covered) weiner. The public fascination with said cover up is depressing. In the rush for the rise to the top of the ratings, the Media pandered to the lowest common denominator. Truly, a sad day for American Journalism.
