2012: year in review in review

I've stumbled onto a handful of year-in-review stories published by major nooz media, as probably most of those stumbling here have done.

The LA Times published top ten lists (how extremely creative and unique!) of what we'll miss and what we won't miss from 2012. Genius!

National Public Radio spent listener contributions on reviews of the year in politics, music, and Twitter--in order to prove NPR has cultural cachet.

The New York Times presented 2012 in pictures, without a hint of irony.

I've said it before, and I'll repeat it here. What these all have in common is that they mean reporters don't have to report news during the end of December. This year, they are also benefitted from the actual events, in that right now a nooz story can be generated by an old BASIC program randomizing the words shooting, fiscal cliff, and drone attack. In other words, not much has happened this year.

Tuesday morning we start the whole damn thing all over again. Stupid Mayans!
