Other People Mocking Ebook Coverage

http://www.businessinsider.com/barack-obama-amazon-kindle-washington-examiner-2011-4

The headline is amazing:

"Actually, Barack Obama Did Not Stop The Debut Of The Amazon Kindle"

Noah Davis' piece refers to an op-ed at the Washington Examiner (yeah, the Moonie paper that single-handedly provides well-paid journalism gigs to conservatives)

Here's the kindle related sentence:

"Other bizarre cases have come out of the Holder Civil Rights Division. DOJ stopped the debut of the Amazon Kindle because it was not in Braille."

One hesitates to call it "the" or even "an" offending sentence, given the rest of the piece.

But it's nice to see Real Journalists stepping up to do a little mocking of wrong-headed ebook coverage. Sort of.
