    WeAther Channel has turned into "Glitzy TV Show Channel",
    with very little weather on it. Stupid shows with Coast Guard  rescues, beach rescues, ice road rednecks driving huge trucks bringing mining and reduction equipment to the Canadian wilderness mines, all kinds of trash stuff that is supposed to -- well I don't know what its supposed to do except get the rocks off on some CEO or big wheel at NBC by having some dipshit show of his produced. Wouldn't be surprised if we started seeing hours-long prison inmate shows filling up the prime time hours.
    I assume that the premise now is weather is no longer data that just prodduces information -- but, like media news, is to entertain, thrill, and foster anticipation of something exciting and maybe dangerous will happen, no matter what the chances of that actually being true.
