When our virtual lives rise up and devour the real

The Anthony Weiner saga is clearly a scandal for the post reality… when a career-ending flirtation is only a click away, hurtling at lightening speed into the hungry eye of the insatiable media. In the post reality, a flirtation traveling through the virtual ether becomes a viral bomb, shattering reputations and marriages along its explosive path. There is no stopping this mediated missile until the protagonist has been thoroughly annihilated by the unceasing chatter of pundits and holier-than-though tabloid judges on high. Its enough to retreat back to the age of macho innocence when a shrill whistle would do the job and the everyone would be left with nothing more than a satisfied smirk on their face.
