Neglect is a dish best not served

It's better that I not write everyday. You should trust me on that.

Not only do I have nothing tangible to add to the discussions of late, my heart is broken with everyone elses. Have you ever seen grace like those Hokies have exhibited? It really is the most phenomenal thing, and the only part of all this senseless tragedy that makes any sense.

I saw O'Reilly and many other media characters defending their playing of the package the other night, and I don't want to rant on and on, but I would like to call bullshit on the lying cocksuckers right here and now.

There was nothing newsworthy about that freakshow manifesto that they aired. I believe they (Fox News) were so green with jealousy over the psycho choosing NBC New York as his target audience, they released and overplayed news items just as soon as they got their hands on them with no regard for just what they were putting on the airwaves.

Fox news was the worst. The absolute worst. I swear, when the only conservative media outlet starts acting like they have ABC morals, we are all in big trouble. It wasn't just their complete lapse of judgement in airing that psycho during the dinner/homework hour (6-8 pm in Texas), but moreso their continued defense of such a moral lapse. Every one of their, what do you call them, personalities(?) was on Fox all of last night and this morning defending their necessity in airing that horseshit.

Does anybody follow me?

They say in the financial world of near constant ethics training that no one sets out to do the big disgraceful Enron level ripoff. Most often, there are a series of tiny ethical lapses in judgement that lead to an almost acceptable practice of just sweeping some things under the rug, all nice and tidy like. This often continues to the point of there being little room left for ethical considerations whatsoever. Afterall, once everyone just accepts that we do no wrong, what is there to critique? (AKA the spin stops here)

As back up for my bitch session, I want you all to know that none of the media outlets can dig out of this one. It wasn't just the Cho stuff. While I was cooking dinner, the news was oscillating between Cho and the Supreme Court's ruling on partial birth abortion. HOLY shit.

Psychotic killer, partial birth abortion, massacre, brain suckage, carnage, baby killing, it's all your fault. So it went. The Supreme Court info was way more over the line (in my humble opinion) and inappropriate for the dinner hour than most of that B movie mansonesque manifesto, though equally non newsworthy. Everything about the news was offensive and little made sense to my children Wednesday night.

Polarrhoids have no idea that they even do this. Look at them, it's ridiculous. Have you heard any other complaints about the media coverage on that? Did it bother you to hear about baby brain sucking over dinner? My point exactly. The polarrhoids, are now, finally, getting wind that the greed they exhibited in putting that trash out there was transparent to everyone. Do they apologize, as they would browbeat someone like Imus or Bush to do? No, they rush back to their media source to defend their airing of the manifesto, ranting about the necessity of us knowing why he did it, and of course, because abortion sans brain suckage is still perfectly acceptable. I know. Turn that frown upside-down, shoester, everything is going to be alright. Eventually.

A hundred bucks says no one saw a thing on how offensive that simultaneous news coverage was, right? Thank goodness I have my blodge so the three of you that read it can vent with me.

And one more thing, no network that pays Geraldo Riviera to pretend he is a viable reporter should be allowed to use a tagline like "the spin stops here". No freaking way. BULLSHIT!! I need a seriously conservative news network. Anybody got any ideas?

As I wondered on another blog, if it had been a Moo-slime and a jihadist manifesto would they have aired it? Isolated case. Religion of Peace and all that bullshit. Can't have any backlash against the "moderate" Moo-slimes can we.

See! You post. I comment.

..... the whole brain-suckkage thing is just wrong on a whole lot of levels.......

.... I dont normally talk about this stuff, and I'm sorry.... but if you wait long enough for a child to have a fully functional brain, then it isnt abortion.... it is murder.... and murder most foul....

Has it occurred to you that watching the network news IS a partial birth abortion? It just sucks out your brains more slowly. (Our TV died in 1996 - we've just never gotten around to getting a new one.)

I guess two weeks in China was not as long as I thought. We had the VT coverage on CNN (my skin crawls when I tune in to CNN regardless of the stories), but it did get interrupted for international news. And for the stopover in Japan, no English language stations at the hotel - they dubbed Japanese over the broadcasters. Guess I will leave the TV off for a while. Not a bad idea anytime...
