If you haven’t heard, Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt did an OpEd piece in the WSJ that focused on the demise of traditional journalism – specifically newspapers and news magazines. You can read it here. The more amusing piece is here, however, where Kara Swisher “translates” the OpEd piece. Sit back, fire it up and read it. Ms. Swisher could easily guest-chair in Castle Gormogon. Of course, GorT has been to 2015 and knows exactly where the United States of Google stands. Bonus quote in her piece: “Apple was outlawed in the Fanboy Purge of 2010”. Sweet.
On a side note, the real point should be that journalism is dying because they are, in general, accepting of certain political changes. We’ve pointed out that they aren’t questioning the jobs “created or saved” data even after the White House admitted it was wrong. They aren’t reporting on the failures of Obama’s recent Far East trip. While I don’t think I can get into reading a book on a Kindle, I find myself turning to newspapers (and only select ones) less and less.
Update: WSJ did have this article on the failures and errors in the Recovery.gov efforts.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
