Once more the crappy cable network news does not let me down. My low opinion of the news worthiness of the so-called 24 hour news channels is reinforced. Yes, I subjected myself to the misery of attempting to watch some real news on television this morning.
I haven’t a clue as to the name of the blonde talking head that seemed more upset that the 20 year old Lindsay Lohan is getting into Hollywood nightspots and getting drunk than the accuracy of the extremely brief report about Representative-Elect Keith Ellison (D-MN). Really, People, who gives a rat’s ass that Miss Lohan may seek the help of AA to overcome her “underage” drinking problem? Is her publicist just relating this so-called human interest/star watch story to hype LL’s most recent movie?
How many of my brains cells died and how many hairs on my balding head turned gray during the Blondes inane report?
The MSNBC’s blonde talking head took just a few seconds to parrot the same inaccurate and totally fabricated “news” item about the U.S. House of Representative’s swearing-in ceremony and Representative-Elect Keith Ellison (D-MN) alleged choice to use the Koran in that ceremony. Contrary to Ms. Blonde’s report, the members of Congress do not use Bibles, Korans, or copies of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix when taking the oath of office. Members of Congress often POSE with their hands on the Bible for individual photographs but in actuality they only raise their hands during the REAL mass swearing-in ceremony.
Congratulations to the HACK that started this controversy. Once more, the religious right is being duped. Yes, you all give money to the phoney lame-ass liars and keep America great. Yes, give up your treasure to the forces of “right” to fight their imaginary foes. Forget about the poor and the sick.
