100 Days of Nonsense

By Ben Cohen

Eric Boehlert bemoans the media’s obsession with Obama’s ‘First 100 Days’:

Unfortunately, the Obama coverage has often featured a toxic


combination of

trivial

pursuit

with a passion for process. The results have, at


times, been gruesome,


with the news media obsessing over White House

iPods

, and fashion


showdowns

,” and

puppies

, and

soft drinks

,


and

parking lots

, and

condoms

, and

hand gestures

,


and

gaffes

, and

laughs

, and

celebrity magazines

,


and

teleprompters

, and


rounds of golf

,


and

sleeveless dresses

,


on and on. The list of press inanities has grown quite long in just 100 days.
