Cable News Nonsense

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Cable News Nonsense

Postby narcoleptish » Wed Sep 18, 2013 3:38 pm

I've been waiting/wondering when someone (like Jon Stewart) would do a bit on what a joke CNN is.

I used to go there for actual news, now I only click on to read the ridiculous headlines.

John Stewart rips apart the host of CNN's Crossfire back in 2006. It's long but worth the watch.

Chuck Todd on MSNBC doesn't think the media should worry about pesky details like 'true' and 'false'.

My encounter with the Chuckster.
Fall of 2007.
I drove to General Mitch from Mad to take a plane to Pitts.
As we were gathering toward the plane a group of journos  with Chuck T in the lead were going on about Obama, I remember how confident CT was informing his fellow travelers in route to the next campaign stop that the election was in the bag for O. I was in awe of this clairvoyance, given the election results this shouldn't have been surprising.
I looked up at CT at this point and he looked nervous, like I was some kind of spook.
He is spooky to me right know.

I still can't believe this guy is MSNBC's "political director."

"Cable News Nonsense" is redundant.

What the fuck is up with Todd's goatee these days?

Somewhere there's a 13-year-old ginger whose pubic hair has gone AWOL.

i think one of their correspondents invented the bash shell. i just saw her talking about the government shutdown. i must say i like bash better than the jason bourne, cushite, and korn (after the band) shells. windows people should know that they can get all of those too: the m k s toolkit, cygwin, u/win, interix, windows services for unix . . .

That one took me about 36 hours to connect the dots. Slow on the uptake. May need to find a stronger brew of coffee. And stop putting Jack Daniels in it.

Ms. Bash sure made Senator Reid hot under the collar the other day, didn't she?

That's not even the half of it. Don't forget Juice Newton.

I see that Omar al-Bashir has an afternoon show on MSNBC.

AJAM was Re: Cable News Nonsense

Postby npler » Mon Oct 07, 2013 7:58 pm

I am interested in people's opinions on the reincarnation of Current, Al Gore's old channel, now called Al-Jazeera America or AJAM. This is after it was taken over by the parent network in question.

Al Gorezeera! I thought that was what Current TV should have been named in the first place.
