Blog content! Everyone needs MOAR BLOG CONTENT and Slate is ON IT.
I have legit questions about Ellen's pizza gag. How much planning went into it? Was that an actor or a real delivery guy? (Or both?) He must have known he would be on camera, right? But rather than slate (ha) my incrediably inanne questions, Slate got the name of the pizza place's name at ABC News's website, spent a few second looking at Yelp Reviews, recorded the pizza place's HOLD MUSIC and got 500 words out of it. NEW JOURNALISM!
