On a lighter note about the media's cliches, here is a years-old forward I've wanted to post for a while, it captures the personalities of these media pretty well. (Of course, this was written before Sept.11, 2001, so it now may seem a bit much. But if you don't laugh you'll cry.)

How the Media Would Handle the End of the World

--> Wall Street Journal: Dow Jones Plummets as World Ends.
--> National Enquirer: O.J. and Nicole, Together Again.
--> Inc. Magazine: 10 Ways You Can Profit From the Apocalypse.
--> Rolling Stone: The Grateful Dead Reunion Tour.
--> Sports Illustrated: Game Over.
--> Lady's Home Journal: Lose 10 Pounds by Judgment Day with Our New "Armageddon" Diet!
--> TV Guide: Death and Damnation: Nielson Ratings Soar!
--> Discover Magazine: How will the extinction of all life as we know it affect the way we view the cosmos?
--> Microsoft Systems Journal: Netscape Loses Market Share.
