When CNN launched the 37-hour daily program, “The Situation Room,” I immediately thought how profoundly boring it was to watch America’s funnyman, Wolf Blitzer, and other “digital immigrants” (mostly generals) demonstrate their tech literacy and mouse for those of us at home.
Jon Stewart finally annihilates the multi-screen short-attention-span pandering format of the show here..
The Situation Room is about as interactive as all those white boards schools are buying to “teach 21st century learners.”
Too bad kids don’t have the ability to change the channel while in Algebra class.

One thought on “I Love Nothing More than Watching Wolf Blitzer Use a Mouse”
that video is hilarious, this bit had me in stiches: “I was watching the Situation Room with a 20th C brain, where you can only process one screen at a time …. instead of my future evolved brain”
