I sometimes think our media class can’t become more trivial

But then they always prove me wrong:

CNN Absurdly Asks If Rubio’s Sip of Water Was ‘Career-Ender’

Mind you, this is the network with the chick who was wondering on the air if asteroids were caused by climate change. Did that end her career? Because things like “having a dry throat” or “being an organic life form that requires water to live” don’t seem to me to be career-ending gaffes. But wondering whether asteroids are caused by climate change while being in charge of delivering accurate information to a huge media audience of grownups does seem to me to be a career-ending sort of gaffe.

    While I agree with you in principle, Rubio’s awkwardness in his State of the Union reply made him look not quite ready for prime time. He looked thoroughly unprepared for the moment.

    Good call. Moreover, CNN is the net that had so-called reporter Soledad O’Brien using the left-wing Talking Points Blog site, on the air, as a script for arguing with pols she doesn’t like. Shouldn’t that be considered a possibly career-ending move?
