Wingnuts Have Suggestions for the Miami Herald: Sell a Toilet Paper Edition

So the Herald earlier this week stopped its experiment with asking for online donations. Maybe it was a little too inside baseball for most to care about, but a certain vein of the conservative movement loves it whenever the "mainstream media" admits failure.

As part of his ever-growing stable of Internet sites, former Drudge sidekick Andrew Breitbart recently launched Big Journalism with the goal of holding "mainstream media's feet to the fire." So one of the site's bloggers jumped on the Herald news. The actual article is just horrible, and we mean really, really horrible writing we barely understand. The real fun is in the comments!

"Here's an idea - create an edition made entirely of small, perforated squares, on a slightly softer paper. Hey, sell them rolled up on cardboard cylinders! That'll save some room on the shelves!" writes commenter Foamy7.


"Some free advice for the Herald: start covering the ACORN scandal, the global warming fraud and give the tea party people a fair shake. Those three items alone should send your circulation and credibility in an upward direction quickly," writes another. Nothing boosts credibility like denying settled science.

Upcoming Events

"The Herald could probably recoup their losses, and possibly even make money, If they closed the paper down and sold the building and land to developers. Even in this real estate market they would get a pretty penny for all those new ocean front condos."

Well, they're still having problems selling their parking lot, so maybe that's not the answer.

"Perhaps..... if we didn't just parrot Obama and the Democrat line all the time we could win the readers back?.. Perhaps... if we just presented the other side once in awhile?... Perhaps... become a print version of Fox News?...Yeah,.. A more balanced presentation of the news ...............................................................Naaaahhhhh.."

Perhaps......you need to realize.......that Glenn Beck crocodile tears and.............Bill O'Reilly's screaming voice ....... do not translate well to text ...............................................................Naaaahhhhh.

Some of these are a little great. Some of these are a little off, but at least none of them called Elizabeth Edwards a shrew.
