What the hell? The world is going to hell in a hand-basket and they report THIS?
I used to call these 'stories' a slow news day. Obviously, this isn't the case. Maybe it's a slow-witted newsreaders' day?ReplyDelete
Sadly, it may be more relevant to a lot of people than the War.ReplyDelete
"The military is at war; America is at the Mall." Or "... is at March Madness."
The suspicion is that we know which group the Commander In Chief is in is, well, depressing.
Is there another war now? I was busy worrying about Charlie Sheen...ReplyDelete
Guffaw: It's the weekend. News organizations send their "good" people home on the weekend. The only people manning the news desk and wire services are interns. That's why the gubmint tends to do unpopular things late on Friday - because they know nobody will notice (or at least say anything) until Monday.ReplyDelete
The President of the United States took the time to go over, in detail, his picks, and the reasons for them. It is news. If I have no other way to judge what's important, seeing the President on live TV from the Map Room of the White House means I need to pay attention. He might might be talking about the crisis in Libya, or the potential meltdown of the damaged reactors in Japan. If he shoves that aside for college basketball, well, it's time for March Madness. Don't blame the news outlets for following along.ReplyDelete
