Mad Magazine's clout may have faded, but its ethos matters more than ever before
“As strange as it sounds, I believe the “usual gang of idiots” that produced Mad was performing a vital public service, teaching American adolescents that they shouldn’t believe everything they read in their textbooks or saw on TV.”

Is the internet good or bad for society? Americans are having a tougher time deciding.
"The percentage of people who think the internet is good for society is shrinking. Roughly 70 percent of American adults who use the internet believe it’s mostly good for society, down from 76 percent in 2014, Pew found."

And:

"About 64 percent of online adults over 65 say the internet has been “a mostly good thing for society,” Pew wrote. In 2014, that number was 78 percent."

Anthony Bourdain Has Become The Future Of Cable News, And He Couldn't Care Less | Fast Company | Business + Innovation
“Tony is an incredibly strong storyteller—he tells stories through food and travel and a little alcohol mixed in,” says Zucker. “Really, that’s what CNN should be about. I learned as much about Israel and the Palestinians from Tony’s hour on Jerusalem as I did from any reporting that I’ve seen.” I think there’s something magical in that statement. As the Boomers disappear into retirement and the next generation starts running things, I sure as shit hope that framing takes over media and “story telling.” That Cronkite-cum-PC, “everything is clean and tidy and yet culturally balances” has been stifling. Which is to say: gonzo, hopefully it’s back.
