A groan of dismay for Discovery News, a source that usually stays out of politics, and now I know why. Faced with placing a headline on a non-news item about Barack Obama’s pending decision to keep his Blackberry during his presidency, the editorial staff chooses this:
I know that people call it a CrackBerry. I know that they will claim that they didn’t mean to associate President Elect Obama with the street drug that has crippled black communities for decades. And yet, there it is. I imagine the editorial staff is a dozen or so well meaning, middle-aged, middle-class white guys, which would once again demonstrate that diversity in the workplace is a good idea.
