My advice to Kos

· 2004 Election

Kos is polling his readers for ideas about his election-season column for the Guardian (UK). Here’s the comment I just posted to the thread:

Write about ABC/Halpern/objectivity issue else they’ll just get Glennbot’s view of it, which will be so slanted as to produce an unconscious meta-parody of the issue at hand.
plus, it ties in with the growing dissatisfaction with objectivity as a pseudo-ideal of american journalism that, as Josh Marshall says, favors liars.
then again, a lot of the other ideas are good and you can footnote this issue by pointing to TPM just as you could give your British readers a key to Halperin by pointing to Jay Rosen‘s column on it.
