I used to watch Bill O’Reilly on Fox News for a while, until his
schtick of sloppy journalism and deliberately failing to see the point
got really really old. At this point I haven’t watched it in
years. Today I ran across a piece entitled Bill O’Reilly vs
Hip-Hop
that serves as a far better critique than I could write
about why I stopped watching his show. It is great on the titular
topic as well as an overall portrait of why his show purports to be
incisive journalism but is anything but. This blog article is far
better researched than any story O’Reilly has ever reported. I found
this via a link to a different article on Electrolite.

Music TopicToo little too late. I just saw the article today about how SXSW in Austin was streaming audio via Ogg
Vorbis
. It seems Slashdot
was a tad slow on the draw. It says on the SXSW site that they are
going to put up archived audio so that is cool. I’ve only been to
Austin one time but I had a hoot and would love to go back. When I
got out of grad school in 1997 I sent a bunch of resumes to companies
there and not one ever responded. I still think I’d like living there.
