art buchwald on citizen journalism

08.1.05 @ 06:38:56 pacific

Washington Post columnist Art Buchwald once wrote, “You can’t make up anything anymore. The world itself is a satire. All you’re doing is recording it.” In today’s column, he provides a series of “fill-in-the-blank” news scenarios for the would-be citizen journalist. Among the possibilities: “Sen. __ __ said it would not be forthcoming, because when Sen. __ __ said, “__ __,” he refused to say he was sorry.” I, for one, am glad Art’s still around.
