How low can Salon sink? Today the online mag boasts an interview – sorry, a Salon interview – with a comedian named “Reno.”
Now, you’re a Salon writer. You’re face to face with some lesbian comic that, presumably, is of some interest to your readers. So what sort of questions do you ask? “How do you personally define patriotism?” “How do you feel about the creation of the Department of Homeland Security?”
I know Reno’s stage show has a political bent, but this is a joke. If a reporter was asking these questions of Pauly Shore and not a lesbian latina, she’d be laughed out of the copy desk. Reno clearly knows nothing about politics. Move on, Salon.
