Suck/lame results

First of all, thanks for voting. I counted 19 media-related posts and 12 votes, not a great turnout but it's spring time and people want to spend time outside, so I understand.

According to a recent New York Times/CBS News poll, just 15 percent of Americans put a great deal of confidence in the media. At Under 30 blog, however, it's more like 92 percent. Not suck won out in the great media vote by 11-1, a shocking landslide. Yowsa!

This is so weird. As a media professional, I'm not used to being liked. I'm used to people telling me that I suck, that I love George W. Bush, that I hate George W. Bush, that I'm controlled by a vast left-wing conspiracy, that I'm controlled by a vast right-wing corporate conspiracy. I feel like a kid that's been beaten with wire hangers for 15 years and suddenly gets a pony and a hug.

Gee, thanks, dudes. You don't suck, either.

I'm gonna have to go with Mark's idea of "maybe all your voters are people who are going out of their way to read online media. maybe" - it makes a good deal of sense.

That one "downfall of western civilization" chick kind of made me hot.
