Headline of the day

No matter what your view on the controversy surrounding federal funding of National Public Radio, you’ve got to tip your hat to the headline-writers at the Wall Street Journal.

The latest news in the continuing story — NPR President and CEO Vivian Schiller resigned in the wake of the release of a surveillance video in which another, now-departed NPR exec railed against the Republican Party and the Tea Party movement.

The Journal’s headline: “Video Kills the Radio Czar.”

Somewhere the Buggles (whose “Video Killed the Radio Star” was the first video ever played on MTV, back in 1981) are smiling.

  2. Agreed. Awesome command of popular culture and economy of expression. Hats off to the WSJ!
