another beaut from Channel3000 today:

MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin health officials have released a sweeping package of sweeping Medicaid reforms designed to save more than half-a-billion dollars.


Prepare to be swept away.

Authorities say Whitney Houston's body has been transported from the Beverly Hills hotel to a Los Angeles County mogue where the singer died and is awaiting an autopsy.


If she died in the morgue why didn't they just leave her there?

more info from channel 3000:

Friends, Fans Mourn Whitney Houston
Two loud booms jolted awake the music industry executive in her fifth-floor room of the Beverly Hilton hotel.


Now it makes sense - she died in the morgue, they took her to the hotel and revived her with loud booms, but she must have slipped away after that, hence the return trip to the morgue.

I had no idea she had become an executive.

Programming Alert: DISH Network Unwilling To Reach Fair Deal; WISC-TV Pulled From Channel Lineup


From WISC-TV's internet site, Channel3000. The article goes on to call DISH network "a stupid poopy pants". not really

That's some fair and balanced reporting huh?

It wasn't exactly a headline but one of Ch3000's articles referred to a local intersection being "all tore up" during construction. I got a rather glum reply after I wrote to the noting this.

How about this from the WKOW site?

"80-year-old forced to land plane"

I don't mean to make light of it. It involves as much gravity as other important news stories.
