Re: TV Station Bumps Guests: KRON's Misguided Author Snub

A television station in San Francisco invites the authors of a new book that's highly critical of TV news, the blogosphere and the "menace of media speed" for a Jan. 3 interview. Then, in a speedy development that turns out to be menacing for the authors, the TV station cancels the invitation, claiming a sudden change in format. It was a lie. The station's news director admitted it in a note to the authors' publicist: "The format hasn't changed. We still do guests. But I am not all that interested in a book that is going to be critical of what we do as a business."

What do you think of politically inspired Internet memes?
They tend to be brutally honest about their targets.
They're usually cheap shots based on lies.
They're often stupid but amusing.
They can have a dangerous influence on uninformed people.
They don't impress me one way or the other.
