Our mandate at Manolith is to bring you the news that’s interesting, be it sports, tech or pop culture. Heck, we even dabble in a little science and politics when there’s a story with some real oomph. If something happens and it’s worth a read or a watch, you’ll find it here — most days, at least.
It’s been real tough to do our jobs this morning. Today is what we in the biz call a slow news day. No great sports highlights from last night to show you. No feuds from the world of entertainment. No cool product launches. Just … nothing. Google laid off some Motorola employees — boring. The Miami Dolphin signed Matt Moore as a backup quarterback — who cares? And we sure as hell aren’t covering Justin Bieber’s wussy collapse.
Nothing is happening today. It seems like a day ripe for an out-of-nowhere scandal to hit, like the Manti Teo fiasco.
But, for now, everything’s crawling along at a snail’s pace.
