    You can always predict the local media here. The first time it snows they send a crew to a hardware store where people are buying salt and snow shovels. Then they go to a tire store and show people buying snow tires for the storm.

    Sounds much better than the BS we used to see on tv. Now that we don't watch it any more, that video seemed.....educational....

    Yup. I've just about stopped watching TV. Just crap. It's all crap. The web sites now, in an effort to synergize programming with news, make "news" out of TV programs.

    And that clip just about sums it up. Love the Onion.

    I thought that was thought provoking and enlightening.
    The onion has it.

    Anybody remember Charlie Brown?
    Remember when the teacher spoke, and all we heard was "' wah, wah,...wah, wah, wah, wah"?
    That's how I hear "newscasts". I hate beating dead horses. Pointless.

    It has been years since I actually watched one of these things. I fall asleep watching the Onion one night per week though.

    One thing for sure about these talking head bimbos and whatever the male equivalents are called, is that if one of them surrenders to the North Vietnamese like Walter Cronkite did one evening, nobody will believe them as they lie all the time anyway.

    Mediapimps has a certain descriptive flair doesn't it?
