CNN.com: Dead horse. Me: Kicking

Taking a quick break from writing about English muffins...

I guess it's not really fair anymore to pick on CNN's web site. Everyone who reads it anymore must realize that it's not so much a news site as it is a glorified blog that runs a "Breaking News" or "Developing Story" banner in bright colors every time a building collapses or President Obama speaks in front of TV cameras.

But when you resort to writing headlines that sound like elementary school playground taunts... and your "reporting" entails quoting bloggers whose expertise is collecting other people's stories... well, it might be time to just give up.

My only other concern is that CNN does not seem to be offering that scrumptious headline on a nice cotton t-shirt. What a letdown.
