Rants & Ramblings

random commentary about culture, media, politics, technology and whatnot.


amazon.com can time-travel, too?

I was at amazon.com this morning looking for a book for class and stumbled upon something curious:

Setting the Agenda: The News Media and Public Opinion

by Maxwell McCombs

List Price: $26.95

Price: $26.95 & This item ships for FREE with Super Saver Shipping. See details.

Availability: This title will be released on December 31, 1969. You may order it now and we will ship it to you when it arrives.

I think Amazon is just generally confused about the release date of this book. On the same page, it lists the book’s publication date as February 2003. And amazon.co.uk gives a February 29, 2004 publication date. I haven’t been able to figure out yet what the “real” publication date is.
