Here's how to keep all that political "news" in perspective . . .
Demographics of American Newspapers:
The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the
The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country.
The New York Times is read by people who think they
should run the country and who are very good at crossword puzzles.
USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the
country but don't really understand The New York Times.
They do, however, like their statistics shown in pie charts.
The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running
the country -- if they could find the time -- and if they didn't have to
leave Southern California to do it.
The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run
the country and did a poor job of it, thank you very much.
The New York Daily News is read by people who aren't too sure
who is running the country and don't really care as long as they
can get a seat on the train.
The New York Post is read by people who don't care who is
running the country as long as they do something really scandalous,
preferably while intoxicated.
The Miami Herald is read by people who are running from another
country but need the baseball scores.
The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren't sure
if there is a country or that anyone is actually running it, but if so,
they oppose all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions
if the leaders are handicapped minority feminists, atheist or gay dwarfs
who also happen to be illegal aliens from any another country or galaxy,
provided of course, that they are not Republicans.
The National Enquirer is read by people trapped in line at the grocery store.
The Seattle Times, The Austin American Statesman and Nashville
Tennessean are read by people who have recently caught a fish and
need something to wrap it in.
