Adam Carolla Says "Chicks Aren't Funny" in a New York Post Interview
People often complain about our modern television news cycle. Because we have so many 24-hour news channels, we're forced to cover and recover the same stories over and over again, from every different angle, because there is more time to fill than there is news. As a result, we give more attention to subjects that don't deserve it, and feign more outrage over stories that are fairly innocuous. Gotta fill that time somehow.
The Internet is that multiplied by a thousand. We ONLY have time on our hands, and we all have the potential to be amateur journalists and take part in the news cycle, which is one of the things that's awesome and terrible about the Internet.
So Adam Carolla said a stupid thing, and it could have ended there. But then blog after blog started covering it. And "Adam Carolla" became a trending topic on Twitter for 48 hours. And hilarious and talented comedians put on their serious faces and jumped up to defend funny women.
