It's Offical: I'm sick and tired of the news media

I think I'll just stick to watching re-runs of "Leave It To Beaver"
on Classic TV channel, and stop watching the tv news altogther.

If you're CNN, you must constantly show the same video
over and over and over again. And don't forget to make
mistakes in your reporting. A nice touch is to count how many
words are mispelled in their graphics.
Let's take FOX NEWS....please somebody take it, and flush it
down the toliet. The mouthpiece of the right-wing.
"Fair and Balanced" uh huh.....right
MSNBC....little station that is trying very hard to be FOX
NEWS. Only redeeming quality is "Imus in the morning"
Commercial TV news. "We have an exclusive.."
Turn on the other stations, and they have the same
"exclusive" whatever. They have to make sure they promote
the TV movie every chance they get, and of course add
TV stars as well. It's all entertaiment.
I'm in a Dennis Miller rant mood tonight.

Imus has no redeeming value as a tv/radio host.

(I do give him credit for donating money for a nice hospital extension - although everytime I pass the hospital and see the Imus name on it, I want to PUKE!)

Every media outlet has a worldview or agenda that filters the news they report.

I should have included a winky face in post.
If Imus is the best thing on MSNBC, then we're all in trouble.
