Fasting on the Horns of a Dilemma

A news fast, a media fast. Needless to say, I approve of the activity as such. But it strikes me that people who publicize their own engagement in such a withdrawal by writing books and blog posts about it—and promoting themselves by giving interviews on diverse media, not least National Public Radio, are caught on the horns of a dilemma. Dilemma? Di for “two” and lemma for “proposition.” Therefore withdrawal by participation.

  1. Promoting your book about a news media fast by doing the news media circuit, delightful!
