That damned media

What's Mallard raving about today?

The Media.

I know everyone hates when this happens, but I suspect Mallard will find himself more or less in agreement with most readers today.

That said, I think this commentary could be improved with a Nancy Grace caricature and, you know, a punchline that isn't hackneyed even by Mallard's standards.

"Hackneyed" is an understatement. This is at least the third time in the last year that Tinshley has used the "Hey, remember the media coverage of [Tinshley's obsession of the moment]? Neither do I!" gag.

and At least the third time i would disagree with his premise.

OK, so if he sticks to pattern and hammers this one day after day until even the people who started out agreeing with him start dreaming of orange sauce, we'll also get at least one instance of an even triter Mallard "punchline": the "oh, sorry, I was waiting for the cries of injustice from the libruls."

Just you wait.

I take it Mallard is pleased that the Duke lacrosse players got off. So am I: regardless of the class (or lack thereof) demonstrated by the players, if they were in fact not guilty of the allegations, then justice was served.
The main lesson one might learn from this episode is that if you are ever falsely accused of a crime by an overzealous prosecutor, you'd better be from a wealthy family that can afford a top-dollar defense team, because apparently that's what it takes to get yourself free.

The Daily Show said something about this weeks ago.

It wasn't a sign of the media being 'liberal' or 'conservative'. Just 'whoops... hide it, hide it, hide it!'

Did Mallard want them to say, "We goofed, we are unworthy" for 'some weeks'?

I seem to be in a minority here, but I remember very clearly when the media covered that the charges were dropped. In fact, it was on the front page (not lead story) of the paper here in (ultra-liberal and gay) Seattle.

Ha ha--if this comic was more or less inoffensive, he more than makes up for it with today's Virginia Tech strip. I am sick with rage.

At least he shut the fuck up about Al fucking Sharpton.
