Obama and The Wire — Same critics

OK, critics come out and adore something, then the minute too many people adore it, they turn on their heels to bash it so that they look like they’re apart from the pack. The rest of the pack follows.

The Wire and this season? Sure (here’s the latest critic, who hasn’t updated in two episodes; and don’t get me started on the Slate guys).

Now, also, it’s Obama after Hilary’s own version of Super Tuesday, when her ability to laugh at herself on SNL put her over the top and revived her flagging campaign.

Follow the pack. But look like you’re not. And we’re wondering why the news industry is failing.

Terry Gross, at least, is keeping the faith.
