The most annoying thing with modern media: equal time for nutjobs

Drew Curtis founded (a cooler Digg) and is the author of ‘ It's Not News, It's Fark: How Mass Media Tries to Pass Off Crap as News’.

The title is self explanatory – Drew Curtis is not happy at the current state of news media – there is too much frivolity.

In an interview with Tim Ferriss, he responds thus when asked about what media pattern he found most annoying:

Equal Time for Nutjobs. It's all funny when you talk about people not believing in moon landings, or who think an alien crash-landed in Texas in 1897, or who believe that there was once an ancient Mediterranean civilization in Florida. It's another thing entirely when people start to believe that denying the Holocaust is a valid opinion.

Maybe, we ought to start a wikipedia for nutjobs - Paris Hilton, first entry?
