It Isn't News, it's Entertainment
So tonight I'm surfing the web because it's Saturday and I'm surely not going to work hard on a Saturday and I happen to go to CNN’s website and this is the breaking news. Are you fucking kidding me? That is not breaking news; that is entertainment news at best. Am I mistaken or isn’t there some new nuclear crisis going on with North Korea. Aren’t we still engaged in combat with Iraq and Afghanistan? What happened to the swine flu? Holy shit, less than two months ago we were all going to die from it, then suddenly it was like, oh, never mind. Are you fucking kidding me, I’d rather hear more about that than entertainment shit. Besides, now that a few people are dying from the swine flu in America nobody even gives a damn. By the way, speaking of swine flu, I just want to mention that my state of Wisconsin is now number one in cases. Take that you other 49 states. We’re number one.
Somehow I got on a tangent there, probably because that kid from grade school didn’t sell me any Ritalin this week. Anyway, back to my original bitching… Someone winning or not winning a stupid reality TV show, whether in America or overseas is not news. It’s entertainment. Jon and Kate having marital problems isn’t news either. In fact, anyone whether taking fertility drugs or not popping litters of children from their overstretched vaginas isn’t news and really, why the fuck is it entertainment? How many TLC or Discovery shows are there with people with way too many mouths to feed? I’d rather see some show with a couple without kids that go around and help out with homeless and sick kids. At least there may be some substance to a show like that… but of course that might make people think and have feelings and we can’t have that. Seriously though, if I gave two shits about those stories I would pay attention and check on TV shows that are made for news. There’s Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight, Insider, and those bloodsucking leaches over at TMZ. Hot shit, there is even an Entertainment Network called E!. Maybe they should be the ones that report this shit instead of CNN. I don’t turn on E! and expect them to report on the war.
Some may wonder why I let shit like this get under my skin and I tell them, because this is the shit that is rotting America’s brain slowly. It’s nothing more than something to distract you from all the bullshit going on around you. To quote the late great George Carlin (who has been gone almost a year already) "I don’t have pet peeves, I have major psychotic fucking hatreds."

Right on as usual Dave. Not news. And not breaking news by any means.

My wife watches "Get Me Out Of Here". What a load of crap - B list actors in the jungle. I wish the chimpanzees would tear them to shreds!!!
Plus, that dumb English broad should stop singing if it's going to cause her to go mental. It was just a contest bitch
