Major Media Mess

Regarding Verlyn Klinkenborg on The Decline and Fall of the English Major:

At the Daedalus Conference in 1960 the exTrotskyites turned neocons mocked my plea that high schools teach Paddy Chayefsky et al to hasten the maturing of the new medium of TV. Just as the Ivies abandoned the public schools in the 2000s so a new trahison des clercs debilitated the new mass culture.
