It takes a special kind of crap writer to take aim at such low-hanging fruit as the media's output over the last couple of days and still make me hate HIM more than his target.

The media has been an utter failure, and in some occasions, an actual threat. From their insistence on asking stupid questions to their cheerleading for the Iraq War, they have been a menace to democracy ever since Rupert Murdoch fell off the Vegemite truck.

Is today media biatch-day here or what? Just turn it off for 48 hours, I promise you won't miss much. And if you miss anything you'll probably wind up with a brighter outlook on life.

"WAAAH, news sucks! Hey, wanna watch some news?"

/this tastes awful, here try some

Super Chronic: Well at least the media reports didn't do stupid stuff liking going on and on and on about dandelions before getting to the goddamn point.

theurge14: Writer should be slapped with a shovel for opening with three paragraphs of dandelion nonsense.

I'd say these are close enough thematically to be counted as a simulpost, yes?  Internet high five.

Sybarite: I made it through exactly three paragraphs of that crap.

I couldn't muddle through it either, but I agree with hitting the media with shovels, so I will forgive the writer.

Only if I get to be one the people swinging the shovel.

Camera ready. The doctor is camera ready. In my heart, I've got to believe if some twit said this to Edward R. Murrow, he'd lean over and put out his cigarette on their forehead. Then again, during a live newscast Murrow asked Liberace when he was going to find a nice girl and get married, so what do I know?

Not a whole lot apparently, I'm pretty sure that Murrow would have stabbed you multiple times for the shiat you just wrote
