The blog post scheduled to run here tonight has been postponed by newspaper editors and their incurable obsession with commodity news*. Come back Sunday night for a post that may be just barely timely if I can file it before midnight.

Have a great weekend. Talk about Obama and stuff.

*Footnote: As Kramer and others have noted, the “View From Nowhere” is also connected to another long-held staple of mainstream media, namely the commodity news that makes up much of a newspaper’s stock-in-trade — the story from yesterday, with all the same facts that a dozen other outlets have, with no point of view or added value. This also has to go, says Kramer. “We really can’t survive if all we do is commodity journalism,” he says. “We have to… say things differently [and] help people understand things.”
