The News You Want

Maybe when Walter Cronkite passed, he took the news industry with him, whatever was left of it. Lately it seems that the TV news has taken a dive off a cliff. Consider the following two videos:



or this one



oK, Fox and MSNBC should drop any pretense of being news. MSNBC is incredibly liberal and biased but at it's worst it is never the hate filled FoxNews. As much as I am more politically aligned with MSNBC, I am fully able to make up my mind on my own without being fed a point of view. That is why it is all the more sad to see what has become of CNN.

Take for a moment the evening line up of CNN. Start with Wolf Blitzer who is about the most legitimate news source on the station. After Wolf you get the previously mentioned Lou Dobbs. Let's stop the pretense of Lou being a news man and put him out to pasture on Fox, Lou is a ego maniac blow hard. Then you get Campbell Brown. Campbell is adequate but frankly sandwiched between Lou Dobbs and Larry King who is going to notice. Larry King has lost so much off his fastball he looks like Tim Wakefield. As for Anderson Cooper, maybe I hold it against him that he replaced Aaron Brown, but he is better as a reporter than a host.

It's no wonder that in a recent poll, Jon Stewart was voted most trusted newsman. I am hardpressed to think of any better.

I am a big news junkie and find most nights of TV frustrating watching the endless Michael Jackson and beer summit coverage. Walter Cronkite used to say that he gave the public the news they needed not the news they wanted. I wish CNN would do the same.

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I
had to tell someone!
