Should I consider myself fortunate in not knowing what "Teen Mom" is?

Yes, very.  Unless of course you like white trash, bad decisions, and semi-amateur porn.

I like amateur porn. In fact, I like all three of those things. You can't get amateur porn without 'white trash' (semi-racist term, by the way) and bad decisions.

Hey, it's cool, some of my best friends are white trash.

I like the informative picture of Gannet's headquarters which looks like it was taken on a phone from a car and is tilted. Probably can't pay for a pro photograph.

Maybe we don't really care because we can't really see how it affects us. My local NBC affiliate, King 5, was purchased. Aside from the local evening news that I hardly ever watch getting slightly shiattier, I just don't see how it changes much of anything at the station because they are either showing the main NBC feed or crappy daytime TV the rest of the day. When I want to know what's REALLY going on locally outside the normal evening news stories, I'll just keep reading The Stranger like I always have.

It and its cousin "16 and pregnant" were actually responsible for a drop in teen pregnancy there for awhile. Until the GOP got all abstinence happy that is.

Well, the site tries to insist that I have javascript enabled just to read the article (I have noscript on my Firefox), so I'm not surprised.  Also, the merger isn't finalized yet.

And the consolidation of the news media under right-wing ownership continues.

Hey, moderator, does FARK have some affiliation with Gannet news sites? Seems to be quite a few greenlights from those, could be a coincidence

But remember - it's still the "liberal, main-stream media."

I think it's some kind of rip-off of "Teen Wolf".

Sometimes mergers are a sign that corporate power is out of control.

This is more a sign of a dying industry undergoing reverse mitosis.
