True Columbia Blue

In my opinion, one of the best reads in the blog world is the media analysis done at CJR Daily, the blog of the Columbia Journalism Review. One of the things they do is the Blog Report1, which today included the following hilarious tidbit:

The Liquid List gives us a screenshot of CNN.com this morning, which featured as its main photo Jose Canseco on Capitol Hill, and included among its top news the sale of Toys 'R' Us, updates on Robert Blake and Scott Peterson, and details about "American Idol" making "its first major cut."

"ANWR. Social Security. Decreased life expectancy due to childhood obesity. Wolfowitz. Bolton. Italy leaving Coalition of the 'Willing.' Syrian intelligence agents leaving Beirut. Darfur still genocide. Americans still without healthcare. Wars. Wars. Wars. Poverty," writes the Liquid List's Oliver. "And this ... is CNN?"

1And even though I liked them before they recognized Jason's genius (scroll down to the paragraph starting "Moving on.."), that certainly didn't hurt.
