Abstract

MCLUHAN CENTER SAYS A-BOMB MAY BE GOOD screamed a headline in The New York Times on Sunday, February 12, 1984, page 20.The article--by Douglas Martin--elicited predictable comments. As an item of news, as distinct from an idea, the proposition that the headline blared was bound to prompt patellar reflexes; which says more about the Times than it does about Douglas Martin or the designated heirs of Marshall McLuhan.
