quotent quotable

Given the state of the "news" industry, this seems apropos.

"The public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything. Except what is worth knowing. Journalism, conscious of this, and having tradesman-like habits, supplies their demands."
-Oscar Wilde

oh how i love Oscar Wilde. he was a brilliant man.

i was actually just having this conversation with a couple friends last week, its sad but true about the media anymore. and we couldnt seem to come up with one good solution either on how to fix it. its partially the medias fault and partially our own.
