Discussion starters for this media circus edition:
- 4 years ago we were excited enough to have an inauguration live-blogging widget: this time meh. Obama gives good speeches though.
- Some subeditor took the rest of the day off after this headline: SUPER NOVA IS JULIA GILLARD’S SECRET WEAPON (they’ve now changed the post title, but you can still see it as a teaser in their sidebar)
- Flash flood warnings for Queensland, snow grounds flights over Europe, more and more speeches and articles about climate change.
- Kochie Kochie Kochie. Criticism from the “noisy social media brigade” is not the same as accusing you of a crime.

As usual for media circus threads, please share your bouquets and brickbats for particular items in the mass media, or highlight cogent analysis or pointed twitterstorms etc in new media. Discuss any current sociopolitical issue (the theme of each edition is merely for discussion-starter purposes – all current news items are on topic!).
