It’s time for this blog to go into a self-induced coma. Perhaps to be terminated at a later date.
I had fun writing about various journalism issues. But defending VOA against the many misperceptions out there was, frankly, quite tedious and repetitive – especially in an era where too many people aren’t interested in the facts, only their own beliefs.
The other problem is that it’s really no fun talking to oneself. While I had hoped for a dialogue, there wasn’t any evidence of interest on the part of the readership, even though it numbered in the tens of thousands over the last couple years.
That has been very disappointing. I had expected otherwise.
But I was wrong -- perhaps because, like I just read in a novel, "rationality is the enemy of consciousness."
You figure it out. I can’t.
