Cillizza’s no good, very bad day … CNN’s Chris Cillizza thought that the American people were in need of more of his obviously sage insight. So he hosted a Reddit “Ask Me Anything.” It went horribly wrong, with people attacking CNN, him, and his apparent penchant for taking photos of his female colleagues’ feet and footwear and posting them on social media. Even Slate and Salon, those paragons of progressivism, piled on.
The best question? … I may be biased, but I almost fell on the floor when I saw a questioner ask Cillizza about my weekend column and his unrequited love for Joe Biden. Reddit user “sikeston” asked, “Do you, in fact, doodle Joe Biden all over your Trapper Keeper?”
Shannon Sharpe jumps the shark … Sports media types really haven’t figured out that sports is a way for Americans to put the problems of the world on the back burner. This time it’s Shannon Sharpe injecting politics into coverage. Sharpe, one of the best tight ends in football history, said that Donald Trump is to blame for the trash talking between Floyd Mayweather and Connor McGregor ahead of their fight. Um, Shannon, trash talking has been around forever. It’s part of sports.

The different priorities of media and the public … Ricochet’s Jon Gabriel took a look at what the media and Americans care about. He used a recent Bloomberg poll and studies of how many minutes network TV news folk spend on topics. His results shouldn’t surprise you. The media cares about things the American people have no interest in, and vice versa. To be honest, I’m kinda upset with myself for not thinking of this.
CNN employee praises cop killer … Mark Lamont Hill, a liberal talking head over at CNN, praised convicted cop killer and terrorist Assata Shakur on Twitter Sunday. If you want to know the truth about the FBI’s most wanted woman in the world, watch Michelle Malkin’s investigative look.
