Sex, lies, and RSS feeds

A couple of media notes:

Frank, sometimes a horse masturbation joke is just a horse masturbation joke.

But somebody needs to decode this Drudge post as an indicator of the sour state of media/public tastes. It’s a brew of PR, rage and sex:

1. Fake hype about a show that will probably suck and be cancelled after four episodes.
2. Fake hype about the Hillary candidacy. Not the actual Hillary candidacy, but the apocalyptic Hillary candidacy the right dreams about.
3. Cleavage.

This has been up for almost 24 hours. This is why he gets 11 million hits a day.
