And that little kitten played with the ball of yarn all through the night.

On a lighter note, 6 Sikhs were killed in a shooting this evening.
 
2012-08-06 10:01:58 PM  

consider this: When did hating on CNN become the next great internet meme? Did people get tired of bashing Fox News and went looking for a new target?


Nope. We're equal opportunity idiot-bashers around here.

I don't get CNN anymore. They're sure as heck not liberal, but not as RWNJ as Fox either. Just totally stupid, moronic TV. Its as if they're trying to be a bad parody now of a news channel, and totally the opposite of what they started out as.

lewismarktwo: CNN has realized that the only time anyone actually watches is when they make a horrible error of some kind


How does that work? Do they make an announcement in advance so people can tune in?

Way to go, NewsBusters, for exposing CNN as the liberal propagandists that they are. It wasn't until now that your dedication finally exposed CNN's concerted effort to misinfrom their gullible, idiotic audience so they may further a radical political agenda.

Haven't you heard it? I goes like this:

"This is CNN"

vudukungfu: Aboleth: If it was Fox News it'd likely be Highway To Hell.

Lunatic Fringe would be apropos, but Faux News wouldn't do that.


The song I most associate with Fox News is "Kinky Sex Makes the World Go Round" by the Dead Kennedys.

There is no news on television. It's all "journalistic-style entertainment" in the same way that WWE is "sports entertainment."

rocky_howard: Am I the only one who was expecting THIS "Only the good die young"?

I definitely was.
 
2012-08-06 10:35:23 PM  
Wow, this is about as non story as a non story can get. impressive.

CNN is still real to me! Next you are going to be saying that MTV is imaginary and reality TV is made up of ghosts!

At least it wasn't involving a little dog named "Snuggles".

No, I asked myself, which version? the IM or the Billy Idol version. The IM version would have better.

Did someone page The Weatherman?

FriarReb98: Nadie_AZ: Should have played 'Blaze of Glory' instead ...

Or "Shot Down in Flames."

\side note: wish we were having a thread on Pat Robertson's rant on the shootings. Curious as to what Farkdom thinks of it.


I think Pat Robertson needs to hurry up and die. And I don't need to hear the rant to know exactly what he said.

\May he be anally raped with a rusty halberd.

Bhags: c) Say you'll be back after these commercial messages.......
whats wrong with this.....I don't understand. The answer is ALWAYS "c".......


Exactly. Fark you subby!!1!

How the hell are we supposed to pass this test, if the answer sheet we bought gives us the wrong answers?
 
2012-08-06 11:06:20 PM  
It's funny how, "I get informed by watching 24-hour news channels" is now something only an idiot would say/do.

Hindu girls start much too late?
 
2012-08-06 11:21:57 PM  
Pfft...'Hit Me With Your Best Shot' is the obvious answer...

PunGent: Pfft...'Hit Me With Your Best Shot' is the obvious answer...


'Bodies', by Drowning Pool would be better.
 
2012-08-06 11:29:38 PM  
CNN made a tasteless fark-up.

Now that we've got that outta the way, does anyone want to place wagers on which network does the most to downplay the fact that this dude was a right-wing nut-job that went looking for Ay-rabs, but was too dumb to be able to tell the difference?
 
2012-08-06 11:31:16 PM  

fusillade762: Gyrfalcon: "Nice Shot Man"

You mean "Hey Man, Nice Shot"?


Yeah, that one.

"White Riot" would have been too much.

Yeah. he doesn't even try to make sense anymore.

The liberal media is at it again!!!
/That's what that site thinks.
//CNN, Fox, and Newsbusters are all idiots, every one of them
 
2012-08-07 02:32:32 AM  
It's not "infotainment" anymore, it's just "tainment".
 
2012-08-07 04:56:27 AM  
The Rush Limbaugh theme (with apologies to Chrissie Hynde) would be more appropriate.

Damn you, sir!

Huh...saw that song as part of a tedious play a couple years back...it was the best part, since I've blanked out the rest...

Or how about "Reach for the sky! Or I will shoot you down in the blink of an eye!" (Firehouse)
 
2012-08-07 07:53:35 AM  
"Shot through the heart"

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: It's not "infotainment" anymore, it's just "tainment".


Or "taintment".

The rest of us are morally ambiguous, which explains the random dying patterns.
