The great cultural anomaly of the age is Jackie Mason’s popularity on YouTube. YouTube’s Steve Grove asks him questions and we see the problems with the asynch interview (questions asked separately answers given). Mason goes on about the sick, sadistic, lunatic people on YouTube and we don’t see Grove react at all. Mason also says he wouldn’t walk on the same street with Barack Obama.

    What is a “great cultural anomaly”? Seriously, I don’t understand why your Jackie Mason post leads with a loaded clause that distinguishes him as somehow different from the universe of content that includes Obama Girl and Mr. “Leave Brittany Alone”…

  • Pretty obvious: Old Borscht Belt comic becomes a hit on a medium dominated by downtown hipness. Pretty obvious.
