Hmm …

… Lewis Lapham’s Antidote to the Age of BuzzFeed | Arts and Culture | Smithsonian Magazine. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Of course, Lapham is also the fellow who wrote an eye-witness account of the 2004 Republican Convention before it took place (to his credit, he promptly apologized). Also, in this piece he seems to confuse the Roman Inquisition with the Spanish Inquisition. There was no "Holy Inquisition." Quibbling, I know, but if you're going to talk about something, know what it is.
