When I was teaching, I gave a lecture every semester on the joys and hazards of the Internet as a reporting tool. It's not as if I knew any more about it than my colleagues, but at the time — about three years ago — I was the only one of us who knew how to play a YouTube video over the classroom's A/V system.

The first time I used this now-classic mix of a rant by Alaska Sen. Ted Steven (put together by Paul Holcomb from The Bold Headed Broadcast), I figured it would warm up an audience of semi-detached college students and kill some of the hour I had to fill. After the fourth or fifth time, though, I realized Ted was right:

The Internet isn't a truck.
