Quick Note: Recycling Journalism

Jason Pitzl-Waters —  July 2, 2009 — 2 Comments

I know Pagans are usually pretty pro recycling, but this is ridiculous. The Atalanta Journal Constitution re-runs a not-very-funny article by Charles Yoo about Pagans from October, no, not October 2008, October 2006.

“Oh, Great Spirit of the Forest, hear this prayer. Among us, the mortals, walk lonesome souls whose devotion to thee must be hidden. Centuries ago, they faced gruesome deaths at the burning stake that came with an audience. Today, their cubicle mates snicker. Alas, the persecution!”

Ow! Ow! My sides hurt from all the laughing! Man, I don’t know about you, but lame jokes from three years ago always age very well, don’t you think? Couldn’t they have sprung for a newer article about Pagans? Were the fans of Charles Yoo so longing for his particular form of “wit” that they ran an October piece about Pagans at the beginning of July?  If this is the fruits of print journalism, no wonder its in trouble.

    They do this all the time, even if there were a thousand letters to the editor the first time. Or maybe *because* there were.

    Since the AJC is apparently cutting the budget for everything, I suppose they will have run this crap over and over again. They've no one left to write new crap.
