This Just In: I Could Give a Steaming Cow Flop

Things I wish they would stop "reporting" in the news:

  • American Idol
  • 24 (I didn’t used hate Kiefer Sutherland’s guts, but I’m working on it)
  • Brittany Spears
  • Tom Cruise
  • Dirty Restaurants
  • The News Anchor’s palatial estate
  • News Anchors who pretend to be everyday people after mentioning their palatial estate
  • Puff pieces that amount to sycophantic advertising for their Network/Parent Company
  • The latest horrible thing that will definitely kill me, if I don’t watch their report on it
  • David Blaine’s latest asinine stunt
  • Stories about psychics/mediums/leprechauns
  • What the new black is

Yeah, the news is all crap!! The Anchor for the locl news acts like he's tyring out for CNN but he's just a jackass. Not as big a jackass as the Wx Bozo, though.

I don't get the "new black" stuff. From now on it is just Robot Chicken and the Daily Show for me.

Phos--I saw that. It really made me afraid for our country. Not that I wasn't already.

Pay--I think we could add "Cute missing blond girl of the month." I do feel bad for these kids. But how many times has the national media wrung its ratings-greedy little hands over a missing child who wasn't cute and blond and female? I just can't think of any.

I'm 100% behind you on the David Blaine thing. There's just something about the guy that I don't like. The way he talks, his stupid tricks, it all annoys me. And yet, my husband insisted on watching the end of his stupid bubble stunt this week. Ugh. I hate that guy.

I agreed with every single one of your bullet points.

Thankfully, I don't watch any TV, but the radio has the same tidbits and dire warnings and asinine content as TV... I guess the sole blessing is that no images accompany the stories.
