Takeouts: Commerce, China Disneyland, World Series

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

  • Washington Takeout: After the U.S. Chamber of Commerce got punk'd by The Yes Men several weeks ago for their reluctance to get behind climate change legislation, one can understand both Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) and our own Todd Zwillich being careful reporting on whether the Chamber might be reconsidering its position on climate change ... for real this time.
  • Business Takeout: New York Times finance reporter Louise Story brings details of a new Disney venture in China.
  • Sports Takeout: Can the NY Yankees seal the deal on the World Series when the game returns to home turf in the Bronx? Or will the Phillies take the series to a 7th game? Our own Ibrahim Abdul-Matin has analysis and predictions for Game 6 of the World Series.

Takaway

Your superficial treatment, not to mention positively giddy attitude toward Disney Shanghai was truly a new low for NPR.
Did you even consider doing a real analysis of the impact this has on culture? Every heard of cultural imperialism? The best you could do is suggest a dragon ride instead of Dumbo?
Face it, intended or not, this was an infomercial. You can, I'm sure, do better and there are plenty of us who are concerned about Disney's impact on child development and culture who would be happy to help. Just ask.
