“The Internet Is A Sociopath”

When is it appropriate to do news remixes?

Naturally, with a story like this, the Internet is all over it. You’ve got everything you need for a great blog: scary details, a car crash rubberneck ambiance, not to mention an Antoine Dodson-caliber local news interview with Charles Ramsey, the hero neighbor who rescued the girls. OK! Sure! But considering the genuinely painful and distressing nature of the story we are dealing with, DO WE REALLY NEED AN AUTO-TUNED REMIX OF CHARLES RAMSEY’S INTERVIEW? We do? More than one even?

Autotune The News was already on it.

I hope this news coverage remix thing is over soon. It was kind of fun when it was silly stuff like cheeseburger reviews, but we’re talking about sex slaves now.
