It’s 2014. “The New York Times” has gone off-line and is now a print-only newsletter for the elite and elderly, and EPIC is how you get everything, customized based on your consumption habits. Hey, it could happen, right? “EPIC” is an online film created by two fellows at the Poynter Institute, a well-respected journalism school in St. Petersburg, Fla. It tells the story of what has happened and what could (might? will??) happen to how we get our media and products in the near (immediate???) future. Besides being interesting intellectually, it also represents a cogent analysis of what has happened to the way news is disseminated over just the past six years. See the film here: Epic.

Republican lawmakers are so performative, they’re artsy,
But as for governing, they’re not much of a party.
Though they’re ignoble and sophomoric,
They occasionally do the historic.
Like the firing of a House Speaker — lying Kevin McCarthy.
