Clark Kent quits Daily Planet. Decries dumbing down of media

Clark Kent, Superman’s alter ego, has quit his reporting job at the Daily Planet to become a blogger, telling his overbearing money-grubbing boss to stuff it and that “Information has been replaced by entertainment. Reporters have become stenographers.”

When you find more truth in comic books than in mainstream news, when some of most incisive political reporting on TV is from comedy shows like Jon Stewart, when foreign media like RT runs stories that our media should be covering, when what passes for mainstream journalism in this country is mostly compliant lapdogs terrified of losing their White House press passes should they be overly critical of the president, then our mainstream news is mostly toothless.
