Mike's Blog Round Up

As The Buggles famously sang in the '80s, "Video killed the radio star," and as cable news killed broadcast news, the internet-based social media is killing cable. Today, we look at this phenomenon.

Scripting News contemplates being used by Facebook, and wonders if there is a better way.

Gratuitous Rex is annoyed by selfies.

The Hunting of the Snark knows a dog-whistle when she hears one, even if it comes from a hip, middle-aged libertarian blogger.

Bonus Track: Big Bad Bald Bastard heard the Grammy-nominated Taylor Swift's Shake It Off, and so he shook it off.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors and at Liberland. You can follow Tengrain on the electric Twitter machine, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
