Obama on Daily Show

What frustrates me is that the best news coverage and best interviews are on a news parody show. It's like multiplying our current pathetic news media and multiplying by -1.

But I do like how they have been ripping on DC all week.

Why it would be nice if reporters did math

There was a story today in one industry rag over how 51% of the NTIA BTOP grant money went to states with members on the Senate Commerce Committee. I was asked for comment.

Me: How many states are represented on the Senate Commerce Committee?

Reporter: 24

Me: So you are asking me if it is exceptional that 24 of the 50 states received 51% of the total grant money?

Reporter: Yes.

Me: Do you play poker? Can I interest you in a game?

OK, I did not say that part out loud.
