Harbinger of Doom

I don't know, people, but I got a ba-a-a-a-ad feeling about this.

As you may suspect, I gorge and overdose on news everyday. So do the people who write headlines, online teasers, and news feeds. When you pull up yahoo or msn on your computer, you'll see a bullet list of the most buzz-worthy topics gleaned from all news sources. Right? Right.

The buzziest early buzz right now has nothing to do with Bush, the war in Iraq, Middle East conflict, or felons in the GOP. Slowly, with extreme trepidation, reporters are covering a topic that scares us more than Avian flu with a side of Ebola: Unemployment.

You thought the '90s layoffs were bad? Pal, forget Monster, it's time you revisited the idea of what-you've-always-wanted-to-do. Now's the time!

I know, I know, as if the snow wasn't depressing enough.

Well, LB darling, the unemployment panic is starting in the media industry. Magazines and newspapers are folding left and right, TV and cable are tightening belts and juggling anchors.

Katie Couric had to beg and jump through flaming hoops to get that job. She also had to accept a deal she would have scoffed at 10 years ago.

That's reality TV for you.
