Podcasting and the MSM

Listening to podcasts on an ipod tends to spoil you. You can hear your favorite shows anywhere, any time. So if you are like me, you tend to listen to small, targeted broadcasts like The Original Red Sox Podcast, Landed Business Radio, or the Glenn and Helen Show (go to itunes to download these).

But when I do happen to download something like Newsweek On Air, I feel kind of molested. Back are all the slightly biased insights of "mainstream" journalists. Back are the standard media memes you are fed by the New York Times, Washington Post, NBC, ABC and CBS. Back is the world where overpaid media elites feed their tastes to the masses.

Why Newsweek thinks I would choose vanilla over pure chocolate is beyond me.
