A New Low for American Journalism

The world of sports journalism is all a glow about a poor throw from a celebrity.  On Sunday singer Carley Rae Jepson tossed out a poor pitch to start the Tampa Bay baseball game.  It was a flop.

Okay, it was a bad pitch.  But do talking heads have to rate it the worst first pitch ever?

See here

and many others.

My point is:  When this type of stuff is big news then you know that American culture is at a very real low.  It represents very well the baseness of our society; our culture is in the midst of an long cultural winter.  It is vacuous and empty.

In better days we would just say it was a bad pitch or a blooper and move on.  But no, today, we have to demean and tear down someone.  Throw her to the wolves.

This is another example of the lack of grace in our culture.

With this event we can clearly say that American journalism is at its lowest level of usefulness.  Is there any reason to give these leaches more of our time?

 No and hell no.

Carly, go make another hit single and tell the journalists to stick it where the sun dosen't shine.  (How's that for graceful?)
