Tiger Burning Bright

So here's an MMish story from today's NYTimes.

Read, in particular, the last quote in the story, from the Daish guy. It's right out of the MM playbook. The medium and what it can do are more important than facts and details.

Maybe I'm stretching a point or forcing a comparison, but I linked it to what MM said about Cubism. that Cubism -- through its claim to be able to tell the entirey of a a visual story, the inside and the outside -- in two-dimensions was asserting the dominance of its medium.

And when you think about it the way, something like auto-tune the news is a similar assertion about media.
