Clear Out Your Desk Channel?


Strong rumors persist about Clear Channel firing hundreds of radio people, mostly in sales, on Tuesday. Maybe they think nobody will notice because the Inauguration will dominate the news.

Speaking of the Inauguration, events of this magnitude are certain to bring bloggers out of the woodwork. Check out this Google search of MSM and social media people who will be “live blogging” from DC. And that’s just the first page! I’ve got two things to say about this. One, if I want to know what’s going on, maybe I’ll just watch it on TV! Why do I need to read your blog? What is that going to add to the experience? Two, why don’t you non-paid social media folks just enjoy yourself and watch the event? When you are constantly hunkered over your keyboard, you are going to miss some things.

UPDATE (1/20/2009): The fun has only just begun.
