Here’s an insight into the thinking of the Major Media Entities, no matter what the format, style or bias. They are all majorly pissed at James Brown and Gerald Ford for dying in the last week of the year. Because all the “Year in Review” stuff was written, produced and otherwise prepared weeks in advance (I have one piece pending weblication that I submitted two weeks ago). Of course, there is also that Old Media Wives’ Tale that famous people die in groups of three, so they are probably all sitting at their keyboards waiting for that third shoe to drop. (And, no doubt, all the members of the Right Wing Media are chanting under their breath… “Castro, Castro, Castro, Castro…”)
