Thanks to Tyler at Marginal Revolution.
Check out this story and come back.
I can’t believe some reporter’s time was wasted reporting and analyzing the songs on our President’s iPod. Not only that, but he called up other people and wasted their time with ridiculous “analysis”, too. Case in point, Spin magazine editor Dave Itzkoff contributed this opinion about the song “My Sharona”:
“This wouldn’t be consistent with Bush’s image as protector of conservative values.”
Okay, I love that song, but I had no idea it was about that.
Then they try to villify the President because there’s
“No black artists, no gay artists, no world music, only one woman, no genre less than 25 years old, and no Beatles.”
How psycho is it to expect any person to consider the ethnicity, gender or age of artists they listen to. They either like them or they don’t.
Anyway, I couldn’t believe this was on CNN.
