State of the Media

As we news-junkies await the State of the Union, Matt Yglesias looks at the breathless coverage in the media of Rahm Emanuel’s ballot crisis in the Chicago mayoral ballot and notes:

“BREAKING THE NEWS: The basic phenomenon is nothing new, but the only thing preventing me from saying that the ratio of articles about Rahm Emannuel’s mayoral bid to information about Emannuel’s views on urban policy is almost infinite is my strong suspicion that the denominator is actually zero.”

He’s got that about right.
