That Ariel Guy

Wednesday, June 4th, 2003 · No Comments

MTV: Educating (the youth of) America. Is it just me, or does it strike anyone else as absolutely hilarious that this MTV headline — Who is Ariel Sharon? — is currently the top “news story” on Google News? I think it’s a sad and telling truth when even the Google News algorithms know that so many Americans are so unaware of the world that they need to show a headline like this as the top story (although, don’t get me wrong, I think it’s good that MTV is trying to educate its viewers…err, readers). I sure hope that this is some kind of glitch on Google News, though.

(I’m happy to report that just in the time it’s taken me to write this entry, the top headline has been updated: Time to Follow Words With Actions, Israel Says.)
