Toward a Palin-free news cycle

February 12, 2011

On February 6, 2011, the Huffington Post ran a story with the headline "Sarah Palin Blasts Obama's Handling Of Egypt". I admit up front that I never read it, and I'm not linking to it so that you, too, can have the pleasure of not reading it.

I would be surprised if Sarah Palin could find Egypt on a map, let alone have anything constructive, informative, or useful to say about it.

The key word in the headline is "blasts". Sarah Palin is very good at "blasting". If you were to read the article you would probably find that Sarah Palin doesn't think very highly of President Obama. But you knew that already.

I personally don't find much news value in Sarah Palin's tweets or facebook posts, so I have resolved not to click on Palin-based links on Huffington Post or any other news site. If you are as tired as I am of the former, part-term governor of Alaska, I encourage you to do the same. As traffic on these stories goes down the web managers will definitely notice, and we may finally get a break from Palin overload.

Now back to Lindsey Lohan.
