How To Not Work Hard

Filed under: — Chap @ 7:20 pm

Via Vodkapundit, the Rambler reports that a certain news agency, learning that it’s okay in an opinion section to admit you have an opinion (cf. Fox News), has let feeling get a little ahead of thinking:

Forget the fact that that we still can’t find a single American who voted for Al Gore in 2000 who is planning to vote for George Bush in 2004. (If you are that elusive figure, e-mail us and tell us who you are and why: politicalunit@abcnews.com.)

Ever have the feeling that someone isn’t looking too hard?

Or did they discover the concept of trolling?

Oh, and let’s perhaps quibble a little with the initial premise of the ABC News post:

NEWS SUMMARY

Today, The Note gets all serious and macro.

It is our most fundamental job to regularly tell you three things:

1. where the presidential race stands

2. that where the race stands now is only a snapshot

3. that things can change

Well, if that’s their most fundamental job, then I’ve not been remiss in completely ignoring them. And notice the "NEWS SUMMARY" there, not "OPINION".

Well, maybe it’s just one guy spewing crap.

By Mark Halperin, Marc Ambinder, Lisa Todorovich, Karen Travers, David Chalian, Brooke Brower, Mary Hood, Annie Chiappetta, Nicholas Schifrin, Jan Simmonds, and Alexandra with Blake Rasmussen and Faryl Ury

Okay, maybe not.

Well, my confidence in this organization is at an all time high, lemme tell ya.

    Maybe Stossel has it right after all?

    -=BTW midway through the book (OK, more like 2/3 through)

    I think he’s about got it down. P.J. O’Rourke’s good too.

    I had thought about getting V. an audio copy of the book just to stir things up–she about choked when she saw the copy of Michael Moore Is A Big Fat Stupid White Man in the house…
