Slate's Jack Shafer is on

Daniel Radosh

Slate's Jack Shafer is on a roll with two and a half stories (so far) about bogus trendspotting. Is there really a rise in teen prostitution? And is that where teens are getting the money to do their own back-to-school shopping? The media neither know nor care, as long as it sounds good. But, hey, if there's one thing that's always trendy, it's the fabulous trend of writing stories about trends.
