Pension Fund Benefits Are Cut at the Washington Post

Written by Gary North on September 30, 2014

The liberal WaPo got bought last year by Jeff Bezos, who runs Amazon. It has just announced a freeze on pension benefits. The sinking ship of print media is doomed. It is a delight to see. All those liberals; so few lifeboats! They had hoped. They had dreamed. They had trusted management. Now they are […]

Robot Journalists Never Sleep

Written by Gary North on September 29, 2014

This is an interesting development. At dawn on 17 March the inhabitants of Los Angeles were woken by a mild tremor. Less than three minutes later the Los Angeles Times website published an initial piece on the subject, at first sight a wire drafted in haste by a press agency: “A shallow magnitude 4.7 earthquake […]

Written by Gary North on September 8, 2014

In the key demographic group that ad agencies want to target, 25-54, CNBC’s Nielsen ratings have fallen to the lowest point since 1992. CNBC’s senior management has a solution.

Written by Gary North on May 8, 2014

By the time you can afford Krell speakers, you’ll have AM radio ears. This is the grim reality of high fidelity. It’s a race against declining high-frequency hearing. Here is a very depressing pair of charts. Look at frequency perception at older ages. Here is an unbreakable rule: Do not pay more for any component […]

Will Facebook Bring Down the Government?

Written by Gary North on April 26, 2014

I am going to ask a rhetorical question. When was the last time you saw a positive political cartoon for Obama? It is not just Obama’s problem. How many positive cartoons did you see for George W. Bush after 2003? For that matter, how many positive cartoons did you see for Bill Clinton? How many […]
